2014 All-Sunflower League - 2nd Team
7/9/14 - Max Sanborn is a thin, athletic 6-foot-2, 165-pound right-handed pitcher and left-hand hitting middle infielder.  On the mound he has a rhythmic, athletic delivery and clean arm action.  He has a mid-80’s mph fastball and command of a 67-70 12/6 breaking ball.  Sanborn has a high-energy, aggressive approach to pitching – pumping strikes and wasting no time in between pitches.  With his tall, thin frame and quick arm there is likely more in the tank velocity-wise as he matures physically.  This past spring he posted a 7-1 record with a 2.91 ERA for East’s 17-6 squad.  At shortstop he shows athletic actions and a strong, accurate arm.  At the plate, the left-hand hitting Sanborn has loose hands and a middle-of-the-field line drive approach.  We’ve timed Sanborn at 4.26 running home-to-1B from the left side. This spring he hit .354 with six doubles.
4/10/14 - We’ve reported on Sanborn’s work on the mound, however he is also an athletic left-handed hitting middle infielder.  The 6-foot-1, 160-pound Sanborn showed solid infield actions during pre-game workouts and during the game, making strong, accurate throws.  At the plate, he lacks strength, but showed a simple, line drive approach. 

4/8/14 - Emerging junior right-hander Max Sanborn (Shawnee Mission East) faced off against Olathe South’sIsaiah Campbell on Tuesday.  The 6-foot-1, 160-pound Sanborn has a similar build to fellow right-handed prospects junior Logan Wiley, Springfield Kickapoo (MO) and junior Brad Archer, Lebanon (MO) - as all three are not your traditional big righties but all have arms that work very well and project out as very good college arms down the road.   Sanborn baffled Olathe South for the first three innings as only three batters reached base but none were on base hits (Walk, Error, Hit By Pitch).   His fastball was clocked as high as 87, a jump since we saw him top out at 83 in Feburary. 

2/17/14 - A thin 6-foot-1, 160-pound right-hander Sanborn throws from a high ¾ arm slot with quick, clean arm action.  He has an energetic presence to him and an athletic delivery with balance and rhythm.  He threw his fastball at 80-83 mph with some arm-side run.  His 69-71 curveball has late breaking action and he sells his 74-75 change-up well with fastball arm speed and it had similar run to it as his fastball.  He threw all three pitches in the strike zone at a rate as high as anyone in camp.  With his athletic delivery and quick arm he’s a great candidate to jump up velocity-wise as he begins to fill out physically.
