Sanchez (3-5) picked up the win Monday against the Phillies, allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out six over five innings. Sanchez dealt with plenty of traffic on the bases during Monday's outing, however, he managed to dance out of trouble, giving up just one run in the fifth inning on a balk that allowed Mickey Moniak to score. Sanchez has accrued a 6.80 ERA and 1.74 WHIP to go with 40 punchouts over 47.2 frames in 2020.
Sanchez (2-5) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up six runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings as the Nationals fell 6-1 to the Rays. He struck out four. The veteran right-hander threw only 58 of 98 pitches for strikes and had great difficulty controlling the baserunners he allowed -- Tampa went 4-for-4 on steal attempts off the battery of Sanchez and Kurt Suzuki. Sanchez will carry a 7.38 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 34:13 K:BB into his next outing Sunday during a doubleheader in Miami.

Sanchez has a 6.34 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB through 38.1 innings and lines up to face the Rays again next Tuesday.
Sanchez allowed four runs (one earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking out one across 3.1 innings Thursday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision. Sanchez was the victim of poor defense, but also didn't pitch particularly effectively. He allowed a home run to Rhys Hoskins, and has now surrendered at least one long ball in five of his seven starts this season. Sanchez also showcased little deceptiveness, generating only eight called strikes and six swinging strikes across 74 total pitches. For the season, he now has a 6.48 ERA with a 24:10 K:BB across 33.1 innings. He's in line to draw his next start Tuesday against the Rays.

He carries a 6.90 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB through 30 innings this season. The right-hander's next start is expected to be Thursday in Philadelphia.
