    I wonder if Donny Sands is following the Higgy route, perhaps a future BUC? A long-time minor leaguer who eventually finds his way as he moves up to higher levels.

    • DZB

      He certainly could be a BUC, though it’s hard to tell at this point. I thought he was older, but at 25 and only in his first season above A ball, he looks reasonably good (.816 OPS, way higher than his last full season, which was at high A). He is definitely one of those guys that suffered a lot missing the 2020 season given his age and the fact that he hadn’t progressed past A ball.
