After hitting his first homer last night, our much-maligned first round pick is now hitting 433/541/700 at W. Virginia. Naturally, it's only through a week's worth of games, but the common logic is that low-A is too low to start a high draft pick coming out of college. So what should the Pirates do with Sanchez? Let him continue to maul low-A pitching for the rest of the year and then start him at Lynchburg next year? Move him up sometime before the end of this year? Does he start next yeat at Altoona (I think so)?
How ironic would it be if Sanchez beats Alvarez to the majors? I'm certainly not rooting for that to happen, but it doesn't seem impossible sitting here today.
