    • Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Gets nod to start Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez is starting at third base and hitting second Sunday against the Phillies. Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday and will start at the hot corner while Anthony Rendon gets the day off. Sanchez has played in 25 games for the Nationals this season, over which he's hit .288/.302/.365.

    • Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez (chest) was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. Sanchez has sat out the last three games after getting hit in the chest by a pitch, and now he will head to Triple-A until rosters expand in a couple days. As the Nationals continue to get healthier (Trea Turner was activated as a corresponding move), there will be less opportunities for Sanchez in September.

    • Sanchez, who was removed from Saturday's game against the Mets after being hit by a pitch in the chest, was discharged from the hospital early Sunday after CT scans came back negative, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. A Nationals spokesperson relayed that Sanchez was "doing well," and the fact that he was listed on the lineup card ahead of the first game of Sunday's doubleheader rather than being placed on the disabled list indicates the team is viewing him as day-to-day. It's still not expected that Sanchez will play in either game of the twin bill, but for the time being, it appears the Nationals won't need to delve further into the minor-league ranks for infield depth while he recovers from the chest injury.

    • Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Hitting second Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sanchez is starting at second base and hitting second Tuesday against the Marlins, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. With Daniel Murphy getting the day off, the Nationals will keep everyone in their normal spots in the lineup, slotting the seldom-used Sanchez into the two hole. The 26-year-old middle infielder made his MLB debut this year after hitting .259/.313/.381 with four home runs and four steals in 263 plate appearances at Triple-A. While it might be tempting to take advantage of his lineup placement in DFS contests, given his affordable price tag, he is hardly qualified to hit big-league pitching, so expectations should be tempered.

    • Sanchez has two hits and two runs scored in 17 at-bats since being promoted from Triple-A Syracuse in late June. The 26-year-old has mostly been used as a late-inning sub or pinch hitter since his call-up, as he has started only two games. Shortstop Trea Turner (wrist) remains out indefinitely, so Sanchez is likely to stick around a while longer, but has limited fantasy appeal in his current situation.
