Outfielder Fernelys Sanchez from Washington High in New York will miss the next four to six weeks after leaving yesterday's game against Grand Street High with an injury.
Sanchez was sliding into a base when his cleat got caught and he fractured his fibula, above his left ankle. There was no tendon damage and Sanchez is currently wearing a cast and using crutches.
There is a chance Sanchez will be able to play in the team's final couple games in mid-May, but he will be out of action as the Trojans come to Cary, N.C. for USA Baseball's inaugural National High School Invitational presented by Town of Cary and Baseball America, March 28-31.
When healthy, Sanchez's speed is his best tool. He's at least a 70 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale, which obviously helps on both sides of the ball. A switch-hitter, he can be inconsistent at the plate, but has a good frame (6-foot-4 and 200 pounds) and shows some power potential. Sanchez was ranked No. 58 on Baseball America's Top 100 high school prospects entering the season.
