Struggles Continue for Yanks’ Gary Sanchez

New York Yankees prospect Gary Sanchez has struggled mightily in the Dominican Winter League so far, collecting just 3 singles in 23 at-bats while striking out 7 times.  Sanchez is one of four Yankees minor leaguers on the Toros Del Este roster, joined by pitchers Kelvin Castro, Joel De La Cruz, and outfielder Kelvin De Leon.

Toward the conclusion of the 2013 season, Baseball Prospectus prospect guru Jason Parks wrote that while Gary Sanchez’s prospect status may remain, serious questions have emerged about his development.  Sanchez’s performance in 2013, and his DWL results have done little to disprove those who viewed him as “a frustrating prospect, one who possesses a high ceiling that comes at a high risk.”  Parks notes that the catching prospect is still extremely young (20), but “red flags in his game could limit his promise, both in the field and at the plate.” Link.
