What can we expect out of him next season? Is he healthy?

I would tenatively pencil him in for numbers similar to 2003 (.285 and 45 SB). If he can hold a spot high in the batting order to produce 80+ runs then he will be a great value pick in most mixed leagues. His SB% is a little concerning, hopefully it doesn't discourage the Tigers from giving him the oppurtunity to run.

Great question.

The DET CF position is one with a ton of questions associated with it. It seems more and more that Alex Sanchez will not be with Detroit much longer. His arbitration situation is not as important to Detroit as signing Brandon Inge and probably Pena - two guys who are much more valuable to Detroit than Alex Sanchez. Also, Detroit is looking at the possibility of signing a FA CF like Steve Finley. The problem with Detroit putting too much into a CF right now, especially signing anyone for more than a yr or two - is that we have a couple guys in our farm system that are very close to being ready. Nook Logan got his cup of coffee last yr and if you havent heard about him yet write his name down - Nook Logan. Simply put, the kid is faster than a deer - easily one of the fastest players in all baseball - he makes Sanchez look slow, and his defense is much better. After Nook, we also have Curtis Granderson who is considered one of the premier outfielders in the minors right now - give him 2 years and he'll be drafted in every fantasy league.

sanchez might not be that valuable to the tigers as pena and inge are, but he is more valuable than those two fantasy wise.

i dunno the status of his injury. he last played mid july and had 19 SBs while hitting above .320. if he doesn't stay in DET, he'll prolly be signed to an everyday job somewhere else and if healthy he'll get you a lot of SBs and good avg.

if healthy i'd say he can hit. 285 and steal 40 bases.

I can easily see Sanchez stealing 40+ and hitting over .300. I think that lasy year was the year where it all clicked for him. But, sadly, he suffers from Jose Reyes syndrome. He has bad hamstrings. And that can be especially harmful for a guy who relies so much on speed. (Led the league in bunt singles & infield hits.)

All Im saying is dont count on Sanchez for too much this yr. From what Ive heard and read, management isnt all that big on him. He is a defensive liability, he is up for salary arbitration, he is considered an injury risk, and the talent coming up in the next yr or two is almost ready, so the chances he stays in DET for more than a yr is unlikely. As for SBs, Sanchez SB% is simply pathetic: 19 SBs and 13 CS? Thats not really helping Detroit all that much and management knows it.

I do think with the return of White and the fact that the Tigers are adding payroll this yr, DET will look closely at signing a short term CF replacement. I can also see Nook Logan getting 3-400 ABs this season. If the Tigers really need speed, they will look to Nook - not Sanchez.

Not to mention a career .327 OBP and an OPS that barely cracks .700. Basically, Sanchez is crap in real baseball terms and there are few teams that he should be starting for. Because it is questionable if we will have a job anywhere, his crappiness in real baseball impacts his fantasy value.

I'm waiting for the Brewers to figure the same thing out about Pods.
