CNY ASG (September 30, 2018)

Wide upper body with proportional build. 6-foot-2, 205-pounds. Pitching – Mechanically sound, repeatable delivery with deliberate tempo. Stays tall, balanced at leg lift. Pushes off backside while getting into forward stride but keeps shoulders level. Smooth, fluid arm action with ¾ release point. Showed consistent extension out over firm front leg at release. Balanced finish with quick hand speed out front. Low effort throwing actions that project well for future development.

June 25-27 (NYS Games) Big body with good control of his actions. The frame should be able to handle more weight as he gets stronger. Stays in his legs well throughout his delivery. Arm actions is long at hand break but shortens up and gets quicker as he delivers the pitch. Good tempo in everything he does with low effort. FB is at it's best when he gets it low and away to his glove side, peaked at 84 mph sitting 80-83. Has good feel for his CB and throws it wth fast hand speed, 69-72.

Preseason - West (February 19, 2018)

Sanders has great size from the mound standing 6-foot-1, 185-pounds with a strong appearance. On the mound he uses a slower pace, clean delivery with a slight pause at the peak of his knee lift. Arm-swing is longer and fluid, releases from a high 3/4 slot with a fastball jumping at 83 mph (sat 81-82), no restrictions on his front side extension, arm-side run. Curve-ball has late 11/4 shape sitting 68-71, change-up was similar speed, slows down his arm-speed, ball fades on the arm-side. Overall, extremely impressed by the 2020 and his projection for the future. The fastball is already good and there's plenty more to come, the curveball has signs of a next-level out pitch, and the change-up will develop with time. Excited to see him this summer.  

Last Chance Preview (October 14, 2017)

6-foot-1 185 pound RHP/1B who ran a 8.30 60. Offensively- Slightly open stance with feet shoulder width apart; quiet take back of the hands with a short stride forward. Stays behind the ball with some natural lift in his swing path. Elevated two-handed finish with flyball/line drive results. Should develop some gap power as he gets more explosive. Exit velocity was 74 MPH but plays better. Defensively- Proper low to the ground setup with hands out in front; slight delay after fielding before getting into his throwing motion. Arm action breaks across the belt and is a low 3/4 arm slot. Throws across the diamond peaked at 72 MPH. Improving agility and release will make him a solid defender over the long term. Pitching- Sets up to his glove side on the rubber; from the windup he uses a short drop step with a leg drive just above the belt. Arm action is long and works through a traditional 3/4 slot. Repeatable landing and finishes square to the plate. Easy effort with an arm that showed late acceleration. FB sat 78-80 MPH with some arm side run, 2S FB showed some sink. CB had early action at 63-65 with 12-6 break. Good differential on the change up at 70-71 but will need more command over the long term. Tools are there to be a formidable dual player over the next few years.
