Westbrook has thrown a few times over the last few days, but is still working on progressing to the mound. He is expected to be out until early June due to scar tissue buildup in his right elbow.
He remains day-to-day due to the injury.
Sanchez, who pitched in the majors from 2011-12, is 3-2 with a 3.40 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and five saves in 43 career appearances. He has struck out 48 batters in 45 innings.
Miller exceeded 100 pitches for the third time in four May starts and for the fifth time this season.
"Throwing 20 pitches every single inning is not what I'm here to do," Miller said, per MLB.com. "Facing a good hitting offense on a big league club, it's not going to be easy to just throw it and have then swing at it every single time. Something I have to realize is to get the ball around the zone and hopefully things happen better."
Outside of the complete-game shutout he threw May 10, Miller is averaging more than 17 pitches per inning in his eight other starts.
"There are some nights where they're picking it up a little bit better and fouling it off," manager Mike Matheny said. "They're still not squaring up a lot of them. I think taking some shots down in the bottom of the zone more often may be part of the way to help him because the foul balls are typically the ones at the top."
Jay has been thriving since being moved out of the leadoff spot in the lineup. He has hit .215 in 19 games as the leadoff hitter, but he's hitting .250 or better batting second, fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth. He's done exceptionally well hitting sixth (.385) or seventh (.407).
"Those numbers for his lack of production in the past were kind of false numbers," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He takes good at-bats. You don’t see him do much different with guys in scoring position. I know the year before last, he was known as a guy who wasn’t driving in runs. I think he’s proved to himself that he’s able to do that when the situation presents itself."
