Sanchez is the second-highest profile shortstop in Oklahoma’s recruiting class. But unlike Bobby Witt Jr., Sanchez has a pretty good chance to make it onto campus. He’s a twitchy shortstop with soft hands, a quick first step and good footwork at shortstop. His fringe-average arm does need to get stronger, but that could be said about most everything with Sanchez. While he is a fluid athlete, he needs to get bigger and stronger. That is especially noticeable at the plate, where his lack of power limits what he can do as a hitter. He has a level swing and quick hands, but he has yet to figure out how to get his legs into his swing.
