    • Hector Sanchez: Elects free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent Monday. Sanchez decided to head to free agency after being outrighted off the Padres' 40-man roster. He served primarily as a pinch hitter for the big club last season, slashing .219/.245/.423 in 75 games. Sanchez did manage eight homers in 137 plate appearances, though he'll still likely settle for a minor-league contract.

    • Padres' Hector Sanchez: Drives in two Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez started the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader with the Dodgers, going 1-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 7-2 win. Sanchez was one of several Padres backups who gained an extra start due to Saturday's twin billing. The 27-year-old backstop has been primarily used as a pinch hitter this season, but he gains daily fantasy appeal when he is in the lineup based on his eight home runs in 121 plate appearances.

    • Padres' Hector Sanchez: Smacks two-run homer in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. A couple errors in the fifth extended the inning, and Sanchez made Philadelphia pay with a two-run homer which put the Padres ahead 8-2. It was his eighth home run of the season. Sanchez was hit in the mask by a foul ball earlier this month and he hasn't played much since, but it would seem he's safely out of the woods with that issue.

    • Padres' Hector Sanchez: Used as pinch hitter Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez (head) drew a walk in his only plate appearance as a pinch hitter Sunday against the Pirates. Sanchez was forced out of Saturday's game after being hit in the mask by a foul ball, but the 27-year-old apparently isn't feeling any lingering effects. He'll continue to serve as the backup to Austin Hedges behind the plate.

    • Sanchez was removed from Saturday's game in the third inning after he was hit in the mask by a foul ball. Sanchez went 0-for-2 and was replaced behind the plate by Luis Torrens. He will likely undergo concussion testing in order to yield a more firm diagnosis, though it appears the early exit was a precautionary measure by the team. Saturday's start was his first since July 29, as Austin Hedges has reassumed primary catching duties.
