Hector Sanchez Shines in Giants' 7-6 Loss to Rockies

Is Hector Sanchez mashing his way onto the Giants' roster?




    Young catcher Hector Sanchez continues to post big numbers this spring. And he might be starting to change the Giants’ roster calculus.

    The 22-year-old switch hitter had another banner afternoon Saturday, first pulling a two-run home run off Rockies right-hander Juan Nicasio, then working a long and impressive at-bat that ended with an opposite-field double off Esmil Rogers.

    Sanchez is hitting .452 with a team-leading four home runs and 10 RBIs. He has a .935 slugging percentage and half of his 14 hits have gone for extra bases. He didn’t lose any momentum from a huge season in the Venezuelan winter league.
