While sitting in the right field seats watching R.A. Dickey and Dave Bush get pummeled by the Red Sox, I took consolation in the performances of Top 10 Prospects Aaron Sanchez and Roberto Osuna this weekend.
On Saturday, Sanchez (#1 on the list) made his High A debut with Dunedin. In 5 innings pitched, he allowed 3 hits, 1 run, walked one, and struck out 4. Of note were his 10 groundball outs, which indicates that Sanchez was pounding the strike zone down low with great success.
Sanchez didn't figure in the decision, though, with the D-Jays falling to Clearwater, 7-3.
Roberto Osuna (#3) was even more dominant in his Low A debut with Lansing. Osuna tossed 5 innings, surrendering 2 hits, 1 run (on an inside-the-park homer), walked none, and K'd 8. Osuna struck out 8 of the 16 hitters (1 over the minimum) he faced. He got the victory as the Lugnuts took the third of four opening series games from Lake County by a score of 7-1.
And Brett Cecil had another good outing, too. The Coronas and fajitas at Lone Star after the game helped get over the disappointment of the day, too.
