red sox - Jerry Sands hopes to go from player to be named to X-factor for Red Sox - WEEI | Alex Speier

“His swing early in the year was a mess. It’s much better now,” said one NL talent evaluator. “He’s obviously put up ridiculous numbers in the minor leagues, especially the power. His swing and bat will play well up there. I think maybe it’s a good fit for Boston. He can run, he can throw and he has power.

“Can he handle pitching at the big league level? If you can stay inside and get above his hands, you can beat him. That’s the way it is for a lot of young hitters,” the evaluator continued. “But if he gets the right opportunity, maybe the right hitting coach and it clicks, he has big-time raw power. He has a high ceiling. He’s a great guy to get in this deal with the two pitchers.”
