    • Sanchez was placed on the 10-day injured list with right biceps tightness Saturday. The move was made retroactive to Wednesday, so Sanchez will be eligible to return next Saturday, though it's not yet clear whether or not he's expected to do so. Logan Webb will remain in the rotation in his absence, with Kevin Gausman returning from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

    • Sanchez gave up four runs on seven hits and one walk over four innings during Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader at Colorado. He had four strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision. The 28-year-old was unable to take advantage of a free victory after the Giants posted a 10-run first inning. He gave up all four runs on a grand slam by Raimel Tapia during the fourth inning. Sanchez has a 3.18 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 28.1 innings, but he has yet to record an out in the sixth inning this season, leaving him little room for error when it comes to picking up wins.

    • Sanchez won't start Monday against the Rockies as scheduled as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday. Sanchez is expected to start one of those games, but the Giants have yet to announce which he'll be starting.

    • Sanchez allowed two earned runs on one hit and five walks while striking out six across 4.2 innings Tuesday against the Rockies. He did not factor into the decision. Sanchez threw only 44 of his 82 pitches for strikes, resulting in another early hook. Through five starts, Sanchez has completed exactly five innings three times and only 4.2 frames on the other two occasions. After his last outing, manager Gabe Kapler admitted Sanchez wasn't at "his physical best," which would result in continued short outings. On the other hand, Sanchez did increase his average fastball velocity to 90.0 mph in this effort. He's currently projected to make his next start Monday at Colorado.

    • Sanchez (1-1) picked up the win Thursday against the Marlins after tossing five scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and struck out two. Sanchez has yet to pitch more than five innings in any of his first four starts, but he has allowed more than one run just once while posting a 14:4 K:BB through 19.2 innings -- he's limiting the damage despite the fact that he's not pitching deep into games. The veteran right-hander is slated to take the ball next week at home against the Rockies.
