Trading Sano now...wouldn't make sense. You have to let that one play out.
scouts who've scouted the Dominican for over 25 years, who said he's the best player they've ever seen come out of there.
He did only hit .236, as a 20 year old, at AA. True, but he slugged .571 SLG and .915 OPS despite that. And he had a 13% BB%. At age 20.
He struggles with fielding at 3B. He's got the strongest arm in MiLB according to many reports. If 3B doesn't work out he takes his 6'4" 243 lb frame to RF and has the best RF arm.
He's ahead of Wil Myers development cycle at the same stage AA and age.
Look at Giancarlo Stanton's 19 year old season. Earily similar. Age 19, finishing in AA. But lower numbers.http://www.baseball-...id=stanto003mic
Again, scouts (plural) for 25 years in the Domincan, say he's the best prospect they've ever seen.
I figure his floor is Mark Trumbo, who just got 2 starting pitching prospects.
His ceiling is a more powerful Miggy but hitting .280 to .300.
