Over the winter the Yanks were rumored to be interested in Jonathan Sanchez of the Giants. While the cost was high (HMat), our scouting department seems to have gotten it right.
In 5 games (and starts) Sanchez is 3-1 with a 3.21 ERA. More impressively he has struck out 36 batters in 28IP. Granted this is taking place in the NL west where games take place in parks like Chavez Ravine, Petco and PacBell, but his obvious swing-and-miss stuff is making him look like a nice young pitcher.
