It's a blog post....it's a feature

It's both and it's the Prodigal Beat Writer with a little something on Juan Sanchez from yesterday.
Baseball America doesn't rate Juan Sanchez as one of the top prospects in the Milwaukee Brewers' system.

But the 22-year-old infielder/outfielder has definitely caught the attention of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers coaching staff.

"He loves playing the game, and it shows when he's out on the field," Rattlers manager Jeff Isom said. "I knew coming in he was going to be our utility guy up the middle."

But Isom wasn't expecting the Venezuelan to provide a key lift in an outfield that has been battered with injuries.

Over his last eight games, Sanchez has been penciled in at five positions: second base, shortstop, third base, center field and right field. He split time between third base and right field in the Rattlers' 11-1 Midwest League loss at Great Lakes on Wednesday.

"It ends up we needed an outfielder with (Erik) Miller (being injured), so we put him out there in center field, never seen him out there, he's never played out there," Isom said. "Probably now one of our better outfielders.


"He's been a catalyst, also, offensively at times. Just has very good baseball instincts. As I was saying earlier, he's a baseball player. And we need more guys like that."
There is a lot between the dots, so make sure to click and read.
