The Marlins are hopeful that Sanchez (shoulder) could return in June, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Sanchez recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 105 feet, and he should progress to 120 feet in the near future. The right-hander could resume mound work after that, but he'll likely require several weeks to ramp up before he's cleared to make his 2021 debut.
Sanchez (shoulder) recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 105 feet, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Sanchez is expected to play catch from 105 feet for at least a few more days before pushing that distance up to 120 feet. After that, Sanchez could be cleared to start throwing off a mound, but he'll likely require a ramp-up period of at least 3-to-4 weeks before the Marlins clear him to make his 2021 debut. The 22-year-old righty may be tough to justify holding in shallow leagues or in deeper leagues with limited or no injured-list spots, given that his debut isn't yet imminent along with the fact that he could be rusty coming off the shoulder injury.
Sanchez (shoulder) has been throwing from 60 feet without problem, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez has increased his throwing distance from 45 to 60 feet within roughly the last week. However, his return is far from imminent, as general manager Kim Ng told the media Wednesday that Sanchez is "a ways out" from taking the mound in game action.
General manager Kim Ng said Wednesday that Sanchez (shoulder) is "still a ways out" from returning to game action, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez has been dealing with mild inflammation in his right shoulder since the start of the regular season, and the team has been bringing him along slowly given his injury history. The right-hander has been throwing at the team's alternate training site, but he still doesn't have a firm timetable to return to game action.
Sanchez (shoulder) has been throwing from 45 feet at the Marlins' alternate training site, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez underwent an MRI in early April that revealed mild inflammation at the back of his right shoulder. The right-hander has resumed a throwing program, but the team figures to bring him along slowly given his history of injuries to begin his career. Nick Neidert will serve as the Marlins' fifth starter until Sanchez is fully healthy.
