Not to say that they don't both K a lot, but to me atoeast, it appears Sanchez relies as the strikeout as an out, while Ceuto has a more mature approach and just tries to get outs, racking up K's along the way. What this means is that Ceuto will be more adaptable. Imagine Jonathon Sanchez facing the Angels(NL and AL I know, but just theoretically). They hardly ever strike out. Especially with Torii Hunter, Figgins, Kensrick, and Vlad. Facing a team like that, Sanchez's BB's would way outnumber his K's, and he'd end up oing no lmore than 5 innings, pitch count wise. Ceuto on the other hand has the ability to control situations in a more mature veteran manner. His only problem is his High HR Rate, but that wil lderease with experience.
I'd expect Ceuto to be more like Gallardo, while Sanchez will be more like Kyle Kendrick was last year.
Comparing one of the best K/9 ratios with one of the worst in MLB?
This is like comparing Juan Pierre with Ryan Howard.
