Jonathan Sanchez followed Johnson and should have had a scoreless 3 innings. He gave up 3 hits, including a triple. One of the hits was tainted, when Eugenio Velez lost a high flyball in the sun and let it fall untouched for a single. The sun is horrible in LF in early Spring Training, so I don't fault Velez for losing the ball. BUT.....the ball was in the air for a long time and I am pretty sure CF Andres Torres could have come over and made the play. Unfortunately, Velez made no indication he was having trouble with the ball until the last second. All of us, including Torres, thought sure Velez had it all the way. Sanchez also had 4 strikeouts. and no walks......really a good performance. I for one am sorry he will be leaving soon for the WBC.

Sanchez pitched very well. Wish him much luck for Team Puerto Rico in WBC.

Sanchez seems to be going back and forth with the high socks.

Those arms are still awfully skinny, but he looks sturdier in the shoulders, torso and upper legs.
