    Wanted to get a jump on things. On his way with 18 HR's in only 162 ab's.
    Yogi and Derek Jeter in one.
    A few more HR's and he'll get ROY for only a third of a seasons work

    A Yankee probably hasn't had his career start like this since Kevin Maas.

    Maas wasn't this good. Not even close. Is Sanchez a sure thing after so few at-bats? Probably not, but he is a hell of a lot more likely to develop into an elite player.

    He also is good defensively, can't tell yet how he calls a game and works with pitchers. But he blocks the ball well and has a strong arm with a quick release.

    His rise reminds me a bit of Cano's. A prospect we heard a lot about when he was very young. Took a while in the minors without really excelling, and was considered a potential disappointment as other prospects got more attention, and then seemed to wake up when they made it to the majors.

    What's impressive is that he has already worked his way out of a slump and pitching adjustments.
    I think he's become a better hitter than The Yankees expected. Will be interesting to see if they
    keep him catching.

    McCann has two years ($17 million) plus a club option ($15 million), so I'm wondering where Sanchez fits, too.
