A rail-thin, wiry righthander committed to Virginia, Sanchez has a ton of projection thanks to his quick arm and projectable frame. He was up to 92-93 mph with his fastball during the fall, and he has great life on the pitch currently, but more often than not he's in the upper 80s. His offspeed offerings are intriguing as well, as Sanchez has feel to spin a curveball that could turn into a plus pitch down the line. He's inconsistent presently, losing command here and there at times and most of his big time stuff has come in shorter stints. With more weight added to a 6-foot-3, 170-pound frame that can take a lot more, scouts think he will throw with an above-average fastball down the line with a curveball that can be a real outpitch. A Virginia commit, Sanchez is expected to be a tough sign if he's taken near where his ranking suggests.
