Should he be called up this season and when do you think it will happen?
While I understand he's only 21, and what point (without acquiring anyone else) do you continue to ride 2 sub-.200 hitters at catcher?
Neither Stewart or Whiteside have been consistent defensively, and from what I've heard, Sanchez has been strong in that suit in the minors so far.
Don't trust what Barry Zito said- fine, I don't blame you. It's got to be given a thought, because here's Sanchez' line through 202 AB's in the minors (Single-A and Triple-A):
.302/.325/.500 w/ 8 HR's and 52 RBI
He's hitting .308/.357/.433 so far since being called up (28 AB's)- smallest sample size, but if he rakes for a month, do you consider it?
Whether he's fully ready or not, I'd rather have someone who can put up a .240/.320/.380 then what Whiteside and Stewart have been "producing", if you can call it that.
