Derek Carty on Sergio Santos

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ June 2, 2010 1:09 pm


Santos is a converted pitcher, having been a prospect at shortstop up until this year. While we’re dealing with a very small sample (much smaller than Hensley), it does look promising. He’s throwing his fastball an average of over 95 MPH, getting pretty good rise and horizontal movement. He’s only thrown 45 or so sliders, but so far it appears like a perfectly suitable secondary offering as he keeps it down and gets a good amount of “slide” on it (3.4 inches). He’s thrown even fewer changeups, but it looks pretty good as well. I’m not as confident in Santos as I am on Hensley, but I’d have no problem owning Santos and expecting him to continue performing well in an AL-only league. A K/9 over 8.00 seems fine to me.

Verdict: Partially sustain
Oliver ROS K/9 Projection: 7.8<!–
ZiPS ROS K/9 Projection: Not Available –>
Carty ROS K/9 Projection: 8.5
