During the month of August, he has been especially dominating. In 15 innings, he has logged 19 strikeouts and picked up six saves along the way. In 10 of his 12 outings in August, his opponents failed to score upon the native Venezuelan. During the month, the opposition is hitting only .208 against him.
Though his walks have been slightly elevated this month, he has minimized the damage with an astounding 5.25-to-1 groundball-to-fly ball ratio. During this time as well, he has put himself in the discussion for a possible role in this season's big league bullpen.
The Cardinals originally signed Sanchez as a non-drafted free agent in 2005.
Congratulations to Eduardo Sanchez, our Scout.com Minor League Reliever of the Month for August.
