Gary Sanchez: Crystal Ball

New, 9 comments
Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Back by popular demand: the Minor League Ball Crystal Ball, continuing today with New York Yankees rookie Gary Sanchez.

The Crystal Ball is NOT a PREDICTION in the sense of me saying "this is how the guy will turn out.". The idea is to generate discussion about a player by presenting one possible outcome for his career, based on what we currently know about him.

It is not just thrown together; I try to make them logical, based on the outcomes of players who were similar at the same stage of their career. Sometimes a CB represents a maximal outcome, sometimes it is more of a middle ground.

What do you think of this one? Can you spot the position switches, free agent signings, the injuries, and the trades?
