Rays' Jesus Sanchez: Moved up to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was promoted to Double-A Montgomery on Friday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Sanchez slashed .301/.331/.462 with 10 home runs, 64 RBI and six stolen bases across 90 games with High-A Charlotte this season. He will get his first taste of action at the Double-A level, which is where the 20-year-old outfielder is expected to begin the 2019 campaign.

Rays' Jesus Sanchez: Tearing cover off ball at High-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is slashing .353/.367/.549 with 17 extra-base hits (10 doubles, one triple, six home runs) and 30 RBI over 158 plate appearances for High-A Charlotte.

As has been the case at each minor-league stop prior to this season, the 20-year-old appears to have rapidly outgrown his current slotting within the organization. Sanchez's average is a career best, and only the .385 OBP he generated over a much smaller sample of 53 plate appearances with Princeton at the Rookie League level in 2016 ranks higher than his current .367 figure. At his current pace, a promotion to Double-A Montgomery seems likely for Sanchez, who thus far seems immune to any acclimation periods when bumping up to higher levels of competition.

Rays' Jesus Sanchez: Headed to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will open the year with High-A Charlotte.

This was a lock, as Sanchez hit .305/.348/.478 with 15 home runs and seven steals (on nine attempts) in 117 games at Low-A last year and the Rays never skip top shelf prospects over a level. Sanchez is a top 50 prospect for dynasty leagues and has a very well-rounded offensive skill set. He has a career .318 average in the minors and has never hit below .305 at any one stop. At 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, it's only a matter of time before he starts tapping into 20-plus homer power, and he is currently an above-average runner, although his speed will likely tick down a bit by the time he reaches the majors. The Rays are well known for slow cooking their prospects, so don't look for Sanchez to reach Double-A until 2019.
