K. Goldstein on M. Sano

9

Pay article, but a fun Miguel Sano writeup by Kevin Goldstein, who saw him on Monday when he hit two dingers: "Miguel Sano was the main event….Having never seen Sano in person, I walked into the park with numerous expectations, and so many of them turned out to be wrong: I expected him to be huge, but he’s simply big….I expected him to be a free swinging maniac, and he’s anything but….I expected him to have some power, and he has tons. ..Both [homers] were to the opposite field, and he really didn’t fully connect on either…already has the swing of a power hitter. …There are far more advanced hitters who don’t have the kind of loft and backspin Sano generates without incorporating an uppercut; it’s rare to see a teenager in Low-A who almost easily projects to have the power of a No. 4 hitter in a major league lineup, but Sano does….I expected him to be a laughably awful defensive player, but he was merely bad." Since I’m cribbing the article a bit, I should mention that Kevin Goldstein is a lot of fun and generates tons of interesting prospect content at BP. And if you haven’t checked out his "Up and In" Podcast, but are looking for a couple 30-something hipster smartasses who talk about baseball and prospects for about 3 hours a week, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING?
