What do you know about this guy? How good is he? I've read conflicting reports on him. One saying his low era did not tell the whole story and the other saying he might be the best of the Marlins young pitchers (aside from Willis of couse). What do you know? Have you followed him in the minor leagues? All that stuff would be greatly appreciated. Do you think he's better than Scott Olsen the rest of this season?

id' like to know any comments as well.

i have picked him up in a league.

all those scoreless innings (forget the exact number- 2 or 3 starts worth) plus only allowing one earned run in his most recent start led me to pick him up.

im pulling for him

The Marlins have a crop of young stud pitchers right now (Olsen, Johnson, Sanchez), but I'd have to say that of that crew I see Olsen continuing his success, while the other two might be a bit more suspect. Nevertheless, if Sanchez is available it might be a good idea to take him. All of these guys manage quality starts, I just happen to like Olsen's "fire"...witness his flare-up with Miggy-Cab.

Mitre who? Don't they have some other guy on the DL, too? Seriously, how many freakin' guys can Florida have in their minor league system. Ridiculous.

Olsen's touted to have the staying power. But Sanchez had his own hype about being a good player. Probably not at the level he is currently pitching, but he should be pretty good. He right now may be a product of a team that's just in a groove and loose.

But Olsen, Johnson, Sanchez, and Nolasco as rookies? You've got to be joking. Cubs hype Marshall's promise. Any of FLA's pitchers would be the second coming in Wrigley. Ridiculous.

Borowski should give each of those guys a nice vacation, because they are earning him a nice contract for next season.

Sanchez is the rawest of the talents in the Marlins staff, but has the most potential. He was ranked higher by most scouts before the season started. While Olsen is good, Sanchez has a higher ceiling.

Sanchez may put up worse numbers this year, but he is basically learning on the job, refining his stuff at the major league level. Look for him to step up next year and blow people away.

From what I've heard, it is the complete opposite. Olsen has stuff to dominate, and Sanchez doesn't. Sanchez is more of a pitcher, whereas Olsen needs to learn to pitch.

You know, I was one of those people slamming the Marlins for the firesale but I've got to admit that I was wrong. It wasn't a firesale as much as it was a massive retooling. They got a ton of serious prospects back when they gave up all of those players and they're already starting to reap the benefits of that talent. They could be a team competing for a wild card as soon as next year if these guys come along at the pace that they're coming along right now.

I haven't heard those exact words but I've definitely heard that Sanchez doesn't have great stuff in multiple places. He's gotten by quite a bit by fooling hitters at every level. There was a lot of concern that people would catch up to him on the major league level. He could succeed as a control & contact type pitcher like a Greg Maddux but that would be the best case scenario...he just doesn't have dominating stuff.
