Strikeouts on the rise for Sanchez

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 03, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

One of the wild cards for the Yankees bullpen seems to be hard-throwing right-hander Romulo Sanchez, who was added to the 40-man this winter after a strong finish in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He worked primarily as a starter with Scranton, but most of his career — including all of his major league time with the Pirates — has been out of the bullpen.

Sanchez can get his fastball into the high 90s, but he’s never been an especially overwhelming strikeout pitcher. He’s actually never finished a season with more strikeouts than innings pitched, but that trend seems to be changing.

In his last four regular season appearances with Scranton, Sanchez had 22 strikeouts in 18.1 innings. During the Triple-A playoffs, he had 17 strikeouts in 10 innings. This winter in Venezuela, Sanchez has 47 strikeouts in 33 innings (his previous three winters combined he had just 22 strikeouts in 34.1 innings).

In a few weeks, Sanchez will report to Tampa with the rest of the Yankees pitchers and catchers. It will be his first spring training with the Yankees, and you can bet he’ll open some eyes with that fastball (he has a pretty good changeup too). He’s a long way from being a bullpen favorite, but Sanchez belongs in that group of pitchers who could make enough of an impression to break camp with the big league club — let’s call it the Albaladejo group – especially if he can cut down on the walks and continue to impress with the strikeouts.

    Jeez the hot stove is stone cold….what are these GM’s doing?

  2. Phil the Thrill January 3rd, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    This is the definition of a wildcard. We could hit it big here.

  3. Jeff Levy January 3rd, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Strikeout guys are the way to go in the bullpen. Hopefully he has what it takes.

  4. Dr Mustard January 3rd, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Sanchez sounds like Jose Veras..why bother

  5. Stu H January 3rd, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    Wow, 120 innings pitched for a reliever seems an awful lot (when you include his winter and playoff innings). Is that normal for Yankees’ minor league relievers?

  6. CR9 January 3rd, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    “Giants today were disgraceful, played with 0 effort.”

    I thought today was quite graceful, actually. Despite what some players said in the media in support of Sheridan, they probably put up 0 effort to cost him his job.

  7. Chad Jennings January 3rd, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    He was a starter most of the year, and Mark Newman has said he’ll probably start again if he’s sent back to Triple-A. The Yankees are all about building arm strength in the minors.

  8. m January 3rd, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    The two big *surprises* will be LF and the front end of the bullpen.

    Exciting stuff. Thanks, Chad!

    (sorry, putting the call out for real Barbie measurements. Thanks.)

  9. Stu H January 3rd, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    Oops, I see he had 13 starts — so apparently he’s started a bunch too.

  10. GreenBeret7 January 3rd, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Yankees should have kept Bruney and traded R. Sanchez to Washington.

  11. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    Speaking of Sanchez, has Humberto signed with anyone?

    I thought his FB velo was coming back, at least to a degree. Becoming a ML starter may be out, but a role in the pen may not be.

    =======
    Why?
    Bruney’s trade saves the team about $1.5million. Bruney was inconsistent. Sanchez seems to have matured. Maybe, you catch lightning in a bottle.

  13. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Yeah, Bruney was a salary dump.

  14. Nick in SF January 3rd, 2010 at 5:43 pm

  15. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    “What will the LF surprise be?”

    At this point, the biggest surprise may be if Gardner ends up being the starter.

  16. Matt January 3rd, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    Even though all the talk lately has been about left field, there’s still some bullpen roles up for grabs. Mark Melancon will need to show he ready and Boone Logan is no lock as another lefty reliever.
    If Edwar Ramirez and Jonathan Albaladejo have no future with the Yankees, Cashman should package them to a team looking for bullpen help in exchange for a good position player.

  17. Bo Knows January 3rd, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    Aaargh

    No more Gardner talk. He doesn’t exist. He’s commando. Etc.

  18. Bo Knows January 3rd, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Another Fat Sanchez – Good Stuff.

  19. Jeff January 3rd, 2010 at 5:52 pm

    Let’s put this into context Chad feels more comfortable with – how the bullpen would SEEM if Sanchez made the roster.

  20. jack -lv nv January 3rd, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    How about Montero’s stats in venezuelan playoffs. 4 for 10 with a long ball. He is playing 1st base!!!! It makes you think he may develop at another position.

  21. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    “If Edwar Ramirez and Jonathan Albaladejo have no future with the Yankees, Cashman should package them to a team looking for bullpen help in exchange for a good position player.”

    I doubt that Ramirez or Albaladejo have value. I’m kind of shocked that they are still wasting spots on the 40 man.

    You can’t be more inconsistant than R. Sanchez has been in his pro career, Bruney has a career 3.25 ERA and in his 4 seasons, he’s been under 2.00 ERA twice. He had one bad season.

  23. Bo Knows January 3rd, 2010 at 5:54 pm

    I vote the Yankees check out Cole Gillespie with Arizona, Frazier and Heisey with Cincinnati etc. Get some kids competing. Put some competition in the OF.

    Am I wrong to doubt that K Long will be able to coach 40 – 50 points on to CG BA hitting lefties or to something respectable? Everyone seems comfortable with the guy. At some point I fear those splits becoming something of a liability. I get the feeling I’m the only one a bit leary. Hope I’m worrying about nothing! I don’t think we have the bench to platoon CG successfully when facing lefties. Oh!Well! We’ll see.

  25. m January 3rd, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I think K Long could do it. But right now his priority is working with Curtis G.

    There was a point where Gardner made the adjustment and made real strides at the plate. Driving the ball. I know that Gammon was trying to jinx us, but he said on the tv that he had just watched Gardner in BP and commented on how surprisingly strong he is.

    The clay is there, it just needs to be manipulated into a finished product. :)

  26. Rich in NJ January 3rd, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    “Am I wrong to doubt that K Long will be able to coach 40 – 50 points on to CG BA hitting lefties or to something respectable?”

    Long can’t do it by himself. Granderson has to integrate the suggestions Long makes, and Girardi has to decide which LHP he should sit against until or unless he starts to improve (like Buck did with O’Neill).

    If you’re right, why would the Nats have wanted Sanchez instead of Bruney?

  29. Betsy - Romine wasn't built in a day January 3rd, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    Sanchez is certainly an intriguing possibility………

    Granderson is a hard worker – with hard work, anything is possible. I expect improvement from him against lefties; how much remains to be seen.

  30. Damon enjoy 27....think 28 January 3rd, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    Bruney Edwar,Igawa,and Coke should’ve been packaged in a trade deal a long time ago.

    The only person I regret Cashman letting go is Matsui, he should’ve gotten another year.

  31. m January 3rd, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    Oops. I thought CG was BG.

    Which will be easier? Adding points to BG avg or points to CG avg against lefties?

  35. m January 3rd, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    It was a rhetorical comment.

    Personally, I think it’s going to be BG with a decent chance of it being JD.

    If Damon can’t find a team (good chance), then the Yankees might let him come back. But I don’t think they see him as a full-time LF.

    So probably BG & JD.

    The clubhouse boys are going to have to put out 2 different meal spreads every day. Put the two Sanchez boys meals in the shower room where they just need to hose down the tiles (much like they did when PA would visit the buffet table at Shoney’s), and one table for the rest of them.

  39. John in Ohio January 3rd, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Chad – Know anything about John Weber? This from Sliding in to Home blog:

    Jon Weber–Weber was signed as a minor league free agent. Weber had a great winter league hitting .396 (65-164) in 40 games. 7 homers, 13 doubles, 29 rbi, 30 runs scored. OBP .429, OPS 1.032.

  40. Nick in SF January 3rd, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    So whatever happens in LF will be a surprise since none of us knows what it will be?

    I concur.

    This is a team by team indepth look at the reasonnings behind the offseason moves by GM’s.

    Sounds like Cashman will use Joba as # 5 starter since he’s stretched out. Phil will have the restrictions Joba had, because he has innings limits.

    Phillies GM Ruben Amaro was so excited at the possibility of landing Halladay, he could’ve gotten better prospects from the Angels, but instead lived up to his reputation of moving quick. He admits that he got over on the Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik.

    These reports give you some insight into the GM’s thinking, a good read.

  43. GreenBeret7 January 3rd, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Weber’s a 32 year old career minor leaguer with 6 organizations and 3 different independant league teams. Defensive numbers aren’t that impressive. Minimum power and less speed on the bases.

  44. Rick January 3rd, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Gammons never was or ever will be a talent evaluator. If the crack of a bat or the pop in a catchers mitt sounds loud, he thinks he sees a sure fire big leaguer.
    His judgements are made from stat organizations like the Elias Sports Bureau and others along with what Theo Epstein tells him. He finds ways to mince scouting terminology to fluff up a player.

    This quotes from La russa, is priceless, in the organizational report.

    “A lot of clubs win with right handed hitting. It’s more dangerous if you have a lot of left-handed hitting.”

    I’ve argued this point with Cardinal fan before, they are awful against lefty line up, like the Phillies i their League.

    Hughes’ innings restrictions won’t amount to much. It’s going to be around 165-175 innings. Don’t automatically assume that it’s Hughes going to the bullpen or minors.

    Daughter’s building a life-size Barbie, but the inseam we found online (5.5″) seemed to short. A picture of the Barbie makes it look like her (head to inseam)=(inseam to feet). Barbie’s legs are disproportionately long, no?

    Is this new Barbie or an older one. The newer ones are supposively more “realistic”

  49. gfd January 3rd, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    Since Joba is officially off innings restrictions, no way they put him back in the pen. Thanks for the link. Agreed, Ruben Amaro is one slick dude.

    I hasten to add I’m a Raiders fan because I was a 10 year old English kid who loved Marcus Allen, not for any other reason. One of my pals lives in San Diego and has told me some horror stories about Oakland fans, are they really that bad…?

    Good afternoon/evening, Dano. And Happy New Year!

    I am well, thanks. My team (New York Giants) was exposed as a sad fraud a while ago, so no surprises today.

    You are correct about me mocking the Raiders, who are not being televised in my/their market as usual due to their failure to sell out the game. I have never been to a Raiders game, so no firsthand accounts of their fans, but stories I’ve been told by my brother and others suggest that their fans are as bad as their reputation.

    It would make me smile to see the Raiders knock Baltimore out of the postseason, so I hope they can work some magic in the final minutes, but I expect the opposite.
    Nice FA Cup results today!

  56. Tom in N.J. January 3rd, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    If Barbie were life size, she would stand 7 ft 2 inches and have a neck twice the size of a humans

    If a real woman were to have Barbie’s proportions (in ratio to human measurements) she would have to walk on all fours in order to move

  57. pssst January 3rd, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    The worst image any woman should have is barbie. All women aren’t shaped like rulers , straight up and down, some have curves,and that’s a good thing!

    I’ve got the Fox game on over here, Dallas-Eagles.
    Poor old Raiders what a joke. I follow the NY teams once it’s clear the Raiders are out (each year); mind you, that isn’t much better this year.

    GREAT FA Cup results, man we are starting to look good. Still need some strength up front, and we will miss Alex Song who has been a revelation, but it’s great to be back in contention!

    Man Utd took a game for granted and lost? Oh dear what a shame….

  63. Dano January 3rd, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    “early Septemberish?”
    Conservative estimate…

    It’s the equivalent of St Totteringham’s day (ask any gooner..)

  64. Howard Cosell January 3rd, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    Romulo Sanchez is a serious bullpen candidate for the following reasons:

    1) They’ve got his fastball moving – its not straight anymore like Eric Plunk.

    2) His conditioning is better – the move to starter gave him more reps, better control and better conditioning.

    3) If he moves to the bronx and pitches an inning at a time – he will be clocking 95-97 all inning and with movement – that makes the ball real tough.

    4) The problem I see is that if he comes up and pitches sparingly he might balloon up pretty easily especially with all the Latin food readily available.

    5) If Torre had him – he’d turn him into another Procter and blow his arm out.

    And they had 5.5″ for the inseam. What is the outseam?

    And that’s bad?

    ****************************************

    LOL – Well I don’t think so, But I *may* be slightly biased being I’m 5?9 inches tall.

    ————————————————————

    Hmmm. I guess that’s the only numbers that’s any of my business. All statistics show that tall girls aren’t as mean as short girls.

  79. Angel - In an Empire State of Mind January 3rd, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Approx 6.5 give or take. That’s measured from the top of where the leg meets the body – right at the waist – to the ankle.

    Navel to ankle?

    Also, can you measure her torso (waist to shoulder)?

    And her head (top of head to chin)

    And neck (chin to shoulder)

    Sorry. :oops:

  84. pssst January 3rd, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    Some guys like those women walking on stilts for legs. They usually don’t have a definable waist, big shoulders,long hands and more often than not,big feet. Too close to a guy for me!! 36-24-36 works believe me!

  85. Betsy - Romine wasn't built in a day January 3rd, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Erin, I hope he got a birthday pie (cake) in the face!

  86. Angel - In an Empire State of Mind January 3rd, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    LOL. Okay – may as well while I have her out and the tape measure handy. :)

    Top of head to chin – 2 inches

    Neck – chin to shoulder – .5 inch – I measured from where he head starts to the top of her shoulder.

    Torso – not sure what side so I did both.

    Back – measured down the spine from shoulders to waist – 2.5 inches
    Front – measured straight down in between bust – 2.5 inches.

    When a woman has big shoulders, and hands, I look for the Adams apple next!

    Nobody cares that you’d prefer a Rosanne Barr lookalike.

  92. Angel - In an Empire State of Mind January 3rd, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Actually front torso is 2.75 inches from shoulder to waist .. taking into account the bust.

  93. m January 3rd, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Thanks, Angel!

    I think she needs to cite you as a source!

  95. m January 3rd, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    lol, paul c.

    Did you ever see the show “Dog Pound” or something like that?

    They had a whole bunch of “women” parade out. And the contestants had to guess which one was really a guy. It was very difficult. The one that was really a guy, didn’t have much of an Adam’s apple.

    Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts

    M
    A friend of mine went out with a person, later into the date he found out it was a man. We still tease him, using a favorite phase, “Look deep before you leap.”

    Before he found out thereal deal,he described her to us as having long legs. He still has nightmares, I think he kissed it. He won’t admit to that though.

  98. Doreen - Ain't it Just "Grand"? January 3rd, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    36-24-36 does not sound like Roseanne Barr to me. :)

    36-42-36, maybe. (Ouch).

    GB7 -

    Too bad Humberto’s winter numbers weren’t good.

    Hate to say, but it seems like he’s probably not going to pan out. Not enough consistently positive results. but, what do I know????? :?

  100. GreenBeret7 January 3rd, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Some fun Barbie facts for Mel and Angel. she’s 5’9 1/2″. 110 pounds and 39-21-33.

  101. GreenBeret7 January 3rd, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    Doreen, it would be nice if he did, but, he didn’t really cost NY anything. They were able to unload Sheffield’s contract.

  102. Tarheelyank January 3rd, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Sanchez fastball is without a doubt impressive. He seems to have a fiery personality, If I can make that judgement on the one game I saw. I am not sure if that is good or bad for a reliever.

  103. Angel - In an Empire State of Mind January 3rd, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    LOL so all I have in common with Barbie is we’re almost the same height. Haha, thanks GB7.

    You’re welcome, m. Good luck with your daughters life-size barbie doll project. Happy to help!

  104. pssst January 3rd, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    Doreen’s alter ego,

    Thanks all the females I know say it’s the ideal proportions for a size 6-8 depending on her bone density, that any woman would like.

    Granderson’s splits vs. leftie/rightie pitchers are incredibly wide. According to The Book, the average LH batter hits RH pitchers better by 25 points of wOBA. Meanwhile, Granderson lifetime has hit RH pitchers better by 280 points of OPS, which, I believe, is equivalent to about 140 points of wOBA. Granderson’s lifetime OPS against LH pitching is a puny .614. By comparison, GGBG’s OPS against lefties is .627.

    If Kevin Long helps Grandy raise his OPS against lefties by 50 points, his OPS against lefties would still be a miserable .664. My conclusion is that the Yanks should sign another right-hand hitting outfielder and plan to platoon both Gardy and Grandy.

  107. ryan January 3rd, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    BP should be:
    Mo
    Robertson
    Marte
    Melancon
    Aceves
    Sanchez
    Gaudin

    Hughes start the yr in the rotation, Joba to the minors to gain consistency and work on his mechanics. When Hughes hits his innings cap…send him to the BP and bring up joba.

  108. JMK aka The Overshare January 3rd, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    Joba belongs in pen

  109. 57' Yankee January 3rd, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    Joba to pen PERIOD!!! Is made for it ! Hopefully regains his big break on slider and a little more heat !!!

    Could become Mo’s replacement.

    Stop it already ! That’s HIM !!!

    Women particularly like beauty. Therefore they give more attention to the color, manner and clothes after they bargain shoes.
