Padres' Gary Sanchez: Moves to 60-day IL
The Padres transferred Sanchez (wrist) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.
Sanchez had already been ruled out for the season after fracturing his right wrist last week, so his move to the 60-day IL was merely procedural. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for right-handed reliever Nick Hernandez, whose contract was selected from Triple-A El Paso. Sanchez is expected to avoid surgery and should be fully cleared ahead of spring training.... See More ... See Less

Padres' Gary Sanchez: Belts 17th homer
Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to Milwaukee on Friday.
