    I doubt his career is over, he'll pitch somewhere in the majors again. But for a 5th round pick, he's had a nice career. He's made over 7m (I also believe he signed a neat contract with under armor where he got a bunch of money v. his future value. Could be wrong on that though). And he lasted a long time. Good on him to work and good on the Twins to hit on a 5th rounder.

    I really do like it when athletes do things like this. Obviously, it's a good thing in of itself, but it also is a nice way for the players to be part of our community.

    The next person who tries to derail this thread gets a vacation from Twins Daily. To say I’m disappointed in the things some of you chose to post is a huge understatement.

    Someone just sent me this and it's pretty cool, thought I'd bring more awareness to it.
    MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Today, catcher for the Minnesota Twins, Gary Sánchez, launches his $30,000 “Swing for the Fences” Scholarship on Bold.org. Sánchez created the scholarship as a way to pay it forward and support underrepresented students in Minnesota. Three winners will be announced at a Minnesota Twins game, and each will receive $10,000 to pursue their education and “swing for the fences” in life.
    Sánchez spent the majority of his childhood playing baseball in sandlots in the Dominican Republic. In 2015, he made his debut with the New York Yankees, and by 2016, he was deemed the American League’s Rookie of the Month and Player of the Month. Today, Gary plays under the bright lights of Major League Baseball as a catcher for the Minnesota Twins. Sánchez has multiple awards and American League records to his name. After making a name for himself and achieving his big league dream, Sánchez is committed to using his position to give back to Minnesota.
    Gary Sánchez says, “Since I joined the Twins, the people of Minnesota have welcomed me and my family with open arms. We wanted to show our appreciation. In deciding how, we thought the best way was to help local students overcome the financial obstacles that some families face in obtaining higher education. With the Twins and Bold.org’s help, this scholarship will do so.”
    All Black, Brown and Asian students who live in Minnesota — whether in high school or college – are eligible to apply for the scholarship. To apply, candidates must visit www.bold.org/scholarships/garysanchez and write a brief essay explaining to Gary what challenges they have faced and how they overcame or are overcoming these obstacles. All applicants must apply by Sunday, August 28, 2022. 
    Sánchez is part of a long list of athletes and public figures who support education on Bold.org. Other Bold.org scholarship sponsors include NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Jae’Sean Tate and Tyrell Terry, MLB player Austin Hays, professional tennis player Sloane Stephens, NFL Wide Receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, Grammy-winning band Imagine Dragons, professional MMA fighter Cat Zingano, actor Terry Crews, singer songwriter Clario and many more.

    But he's not that young - this is his age 26 season. And his k rate is actually a touch below MLB average - 8.4 v 8.5 k/9. Some numbers, such as fip and xfip, suggest Ryan has actually been lucky. I don't think he's top 50 in any MLB stat.

    It's a bit hard to define now since starters aren't asked to do as much - is he who he is because that's how the Twins run things, or is this his ceiling and the Twins are protecting him? But he's pretty much a traditional back end starter, which isn't a bad thing. Over a full season, he'll likely produce somewhere about 2 WAR and roughly a league average ERA+.
    At the same time, he wouldn't sniff the rotation for the Yankees or several other playoff caliber teams,

    It's a fair trade with the potential to really blow up in our faces in a few years. CES is a tough pill, I really liked him. But Mahle is instantly our best starter and we really needed help. I still think our pitching isn't good enough but they did upgrade it quite a bit today.

    I agree with Mike, the trade makes sense for both sides. We gave up quantity with some upside but we have several years of control and fits an obvious need.
