WSC Birth Years: Angel Sanchez
Born: September 20, 1983
Angel was picked up in the Rule V draft from the Angels in December 2012, which marked the first time since 2003 that the Pale Hose selected a player this way.Sanchez made his White Sox debut on April 9, 2013, against the Nationals in Washington D.C. He replaced Gordon Beckham in the third inning, when Beckham felt some nerve irritation in his left wrist after hitting a foul ball in the second.
Angel would go 0-2 in two plate appearances, but that wasn't the only bad luck waiting for him. Sanchez went on the disabled list the next day with lower back strain. In late May 2013, Angel was reinstated and outrighted to AAA Charlotte. With Beckham back from injury and a flux of infielders, April 9th may be Sanchez's only appearance in a White Sox uniform.
