Sanchez is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Friday. Sanchez will retreat to the bench following nine straight starts, including a two-hit performance during Thursday's victory over Cleveland. Jose Rondon will man third base and bat second in his absence.
Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk and a stolen base Sunday against Baltimore. Sanchez belted a two-run blast to center in the fifth inning, but the White Sox would fall in the series finale 8-4. Prior to Sunday's performance, he hadn't recorded a home run since Aug. 12 against Cleveland. Sanchez is hitting .247 with eight home runs and 51 RBI through 143 games in 2018.
Sanchez is not in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Sanchez started the past three games and even knocked a pair of doubles in Saturday's contest. Despite this, he'll get a day off, allowing Jose Rondon to take a turn at the hot corner in his stead.
Sanchez is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Tigers. Sanchez sits for just the second time since the start of July. He's hit .301/.414/.398 over his last 22 games. Jose Rondon will start at third base in his place.
Sanchez went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Red Sox. Sanchez reached base on three singles, but only came around to score on one occasion. He also managed to steal his 12th base of the season, though he has displayed subpar efficiency by getting thrown out six times in 18 attempts. That's only worsened in August, as he is now 2-for-6 in stolen base attempts for the month.
