Sanchez has something at stake, as well, namely a job with the Mets. He has to make a positive impression or else the Mets will seriously consider releasing him by 2 p.m. on April 1 and owing the righty just one-quarter of his $1,687,500 contract ($421,875).Interesting thought. It's obvious he's not the same pitcher he was before the taxi accident.
The Mets seem to be very high on the players they selected in the rule V draft in Rocky Cherry and Darren O'Day, so one of them might be able to step into the role vacated if they move Sanchez.
I think it's something that is entirely plausible. I give it a 30 percent chance of happening.
