Sanudo came to the organization in March of last year from the Twins in what was, at the time, an exchange of low-level, non-descript minor leaguers. The Astros gave up Mike Kvasnicka, a very disappointing former 1st round pick who seemably couldn't hit at the low-A level.
So why pay attention?
Because over his last 40 regular-season innings, dating back to July 13, 2013. Sanudo has been putting up numbers that would make video game numbers look like Lucas Harrell.
Catch that? Sanudo has a streak going of 40 scoreless innings!
Now, before everyone starts petitioning to call him up to Houston, I should note that at this point he's pitching for Quad Cities. If I had a dollar for every relief pitcher in A-ball I've gotten excited about over the last five seasons, I'd be able to move from the dollar menu to a value meal at McDonalds. But that doesn't change the fact that this kid in having an amazing run right now, and we should enjoy watching how this plays out.
