  • Sanchez signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Monday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Sanchez struggled to an 8.33 ERA and an 11.3 percent strikeout rate in seven starts for the Nationals before being designated for assignment in late May. He'll give the Twins some added rotation depth, but given that he owns a 5.34 ERA since the start of the 2017 season, they're unlikely to turn to him unless injuries force their hand. He'll report to Triple-A St. Paul for now.

  • Sanchez elected free agency Tuesday after clearing waivers, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Rather than accepting a minor-league assignment after the Nationals designated him for assignment over the weekend, Sanchez will try his luck on the open market. Sanchez likely won't garner anything more than a minor-league deal with limited incentives after he turned in an 8.33 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 5.7 K-BB% over seven starts with Washington prior to losing his spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Nationals following his start Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Sanchez pitched 3.2 frames, allowing seven runs on eight hits while striking out three in the Nationals' Game 1 win over the Rockies during Saturday's doubleheader. The 29-year-old did not factor into the decision and was designated for assignment after the second game concluded. He will now report to Triple-A Rochester, get claimed by another team or get released outright. Sanchez owns an abysmal 8.33 ERA and 1.76 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 31.1 innings in seven starts this year.

  • Sanchez won't start against the Rockies as scheduled Friday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. The contest will be made up via a twin bill Saturday, with Sanchez likely to be on the mound for one of those games. Joan Adon was Saturday's regularly scheduled pitcher and should start the other contest.

  • Sanchez (3-3) earned the win during Sunday's 8-2 victory over Milwaukee, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks with one strikeout in five innings. Sanchez was staked to an eight-run lead early and kept Milwaukee off the board until the fifth inning, when Tyrone Taylor tagged him for a two-run home run. The 29-year-old topped out at 89 pitches but hasn't missed many bats with no more than four strikeouts in any of his six starts and has now alternated decisions in every turn. He'll carry a 7.16 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 13 strikeouts into a start slated to come against Colorado next weekend.
