Fantasy Player of the Day: Marlins First Baseman Gaby Sanchez

New, 2 comments

On the same day that Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez was named the NL Player of the Week, he was also named the Fake Teams Fantasy Player of the Day. Sanchez hit .464-.531-.786 with 2 HRs, 3 2Bs, and 10 RBIs last week and has started this week off just as hot. He went 3-4 with a run scored and 3 RBIs last night in the Marlins 6-4 loss to division rival Phillies.

Sanchez is coming off a 2010 season where he hit .273-.341-.448 with 19 HRs, 85 RBIs and 5 SBs. He was not ranked in my Top 12 First Baseman for 2011, but he is currently 7th amongst all first baseman in RBIs, but is leading all first baseman in batting average. For the season, he is hitting .341-.423-.550 with 5 HRs, 23 RBIs and an excellent 18-18 K/BB rate.

I think Sanchez can go 20-90-.285 this season, and it looks like he is well on his way to achieving that line.
