Sixto seems a tad risky, from rotowire:


February 7, 2019
Sanchez (collarbone) was traded to the Marlins along with Jorge Alfaro, Will Stewart and an international bonus slot in exchange for J.T. Realmuto, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Sanchez is the epitome of a high-risk/high-reward prospect, even by pitching prospect standards. He missed a good chunk of time in 2018 with elbow inflammation and throws incredibly hard -- two top predictors of Tommy John surgery. The hope was for him to make up for lost time in the Arizona Fall League, but he was instead shut down due to collarbone soreness. When fully healthy, Sanchez exhibits frontline upside, with a chance for three plus or better pitches (his fastball could be an 80-grade monster) and plus command. If he is fully healthy in spring training, Sanchez will likely be assigned to High-A and could then quickly earn a promotion to the upper levels with a big-league ETA of 2020.

Yep - a nice upgrade for him if he starts his MLB career in Florida instead of Philly.

Although the Phillies were worried enough about him after last year that they didn't even send him to Arizona in the fall.  I don't expect the Marlins to be rushing him.

Does anyone know if playing in the DSL for a summer starts the Rule V clock for a player?   If it does, Sanchez (who pitched in the DSL at age 16) will need to be added to the Marlins 40-man after this season ... which would lead to a possible call-up in 2020.  Otherwise I'd not expect to see him until the 2021 season.

Sixto Sanchez, newly of the Marlins.

Yes, the price for Realmuto was steep. Sixto is a serious prospect.

He's on all four top 100 lists that will be in Patton $ Online (which we are rolling out in two days).
