I thought that ball to left was played as well as Sappelt could. It was a sinking line drive that turns into an inside-the-park-homer if it gets by him. That would have gone over well.
I don't think it was as easy as just reaching out and catching it.
And he is starting to look less anxious at the plate.
Everyone wants to see the minor leaguers, then expects polish, I guess.
Sometimes people get boxed in to their opinions rather than judging objectively based on performance, IMO.
Sapp has played a very good LF. Nice throw to the plate to nail a runner in the 8th.
He just needs time to settle down at the plate. He's been pitched pretty tough so far. I contend he can be a very pesky top of the order guy before long.
