Sanchez, Pope sent down


Via Bryan Hoch, we learn this afternoon that the Yankees have made two more cuts from the Big League camp. Ryan Pope — 3 G, 3 IP, 1 H, 3 K — has been reassigned to the minor league camp, and Romulo Sanchez — 4 G, 3.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K — has been optioned to AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Despite less than stellar Spring Training numbers, the Yankees will probably give Sanchez some Major League innings at some point this season if and when the bullpen needs some help. Slowly, slowly, the roster is getting whittled down.

    What is holding Sanchez back from becoming a legitmate MLB releiver, just command, more experience, both?

    All the best relievers, outside of the alpha of course, are big and fat. If not, they are skinny and injured.

  3. CS Yankee says:


    Seems like Pope’s SSS was solid…what level will he likely move to & what does he have in his tool bag (velocity, types of pitches, etc).

    Has he been in the org for a while (age)?

    Possible September callup?

    I think this says it all.
