Player Outlook
Sixto Sanchez saw game action with Double-A Pensacola in September for his first appearance at any level in nearly three years, but that ended up being his lone outing of the year. Injuries have long been a part of the right-hander's profile but have been insurmountable over the past few years, though he's still just 25 years old and remains a strong prospect. Sanchez had a 3.46 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB over 39 frames as a rookie in 2020, but that's the last time he was truly healthy. There's been no indication he's dealing with any issues this offseason, but his 2024 is still filled with question marks. Sanchez's significant layoff should cap his potential for this season since his workload is likely to be closely monitored, even if he's able to be available all year.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Set to open Wednesday's game

    Sanchez is scheduled to start Wednesday's game in Atlanta, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The 25-year-old right-hander will be making his first MLB start since Oct. 8, 2020, when he faced Atlanta in Game 3 of the National League Division Series. After missing most of the ensuing three seasons while recovering from shoulder problems, Sanchez has been healthy thus far in 2024 while operating in a relief role for Miami, producing a 6.14 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 7.1 innings. He hasn't recorded more than six outs in any of his seven appearances, so Sanchez shouldn't be expected to work more than two or three innings before turning the game over to the bullpen. If Miami doesn't add another pitcher to its active roster ahead of Wednesday's contest, Kyle Tyler -- who has yet to make his 2024 MLB debut but covered 3.1 innings in his last appearance for Triple-A Jacksonville on April 14 -- would appear to be the most logical option to work behind Sanchez in bulk relief.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Cracks Opening Day roster

    Marlins manager Skip Schumaker said Friday that Sanchez has made the Opening Day roster, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez is out of options but nonetheless came into camp seeming like a long shot for the Opening Day roster given that he's barely pitched the last three years because of shoulder woes. However, he looked surprisingly good in five Grapefruit League appearances, yielding just one hit and three walks while striking out four over seven scoreless innings. The Marlins are dealing with multiple injuries in their rotation, but the plan is for Sanchez to be a reliever moving forward.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Out of options

    Sanchez is out of minor-league options, but the right-hander isn't guaranteed a spot on the Opening Day roster, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. He's thrown only one inning since 2020 due to a pair of shoulder surgeries, and the upside he displayed prior to that is a distant memory. The Marlins have a vacancy in their rotation this season with Sandy Alcantara (elbow) out, but Sanchez might be a long shot just to win a low-leverage relief job. He threw a bullpen session Thursday and at least appears to be healthy to begin camp, but the 25-year-old has a lot to prove. "That's the reality," manager Skip Schumaker said Thursday. "He's in big-league camp. He's got a chance just like anybody else, but he's gonna have to show something."

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Says he's 90-to-95 percent healthy

    Sanchez (shoulder) told reporters Thursday that he's 90-to-95 percent healthy, Kevin Barral of Fish on First reports. Sanchez made one appearance with Double-A Pensacola last September in what was his first outing since 2020, but he had to be scratched from his next scheduled appearance because his surgically repaired shoulder didn't bounce back as hoped. It's good that he currently appears trending in the right direction, but at this point it seems unlikely Sanchez will healthy and effective for a sustained period.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Doesn't make scheduled appearance

    Sanchez (shoulder) did not make a second appearance with Double-A Pensacola on Sunday as scheduled, MLB.com reports. Sanchez did throw a scoreless inning for Pensacola on Sept. 12 in what was his first appearance at any level since 2020. Evidently, he must not have recovered from that outing as hoped, so his next appearance was scratched. Sanchez is slated to throw a bullpen session soon, so there's a slim chance he'll make it back to game action again before the end of the minor-league season.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Making 2023 debut

    Sanchez (shoulder) will be reinstated from Triple-A Jacksonville's 60-day injured list and will be assigned to Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday, when he's expected to throw one inning or 20 pitches in a game, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez hasn't pitched at any level since 2020, but he's finally ready to get back up on the bump following a prolonged recovery from shoulder surgery and related setbacks. He'll look to string together some quality appearances in the minors to close out the season before potentially competing for a spot on the Marlins' big-league pitching staff next spring.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Tosses bullpen session

    Sanchez (shoulder) completed a 19-pitch bullpen session Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. While the side session represents a step forward after Sanchez had been limited to playing catch off flat ground heading into the All-Star break, the 24-year-old right-hander still doesn't appear especially close to pitching in a game. Sanchez has endured a slow buildup since undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery in October, which came after he had surgery in July 2021 to repair a capsule tear in the same shoulder. He'll likely continue to throw side sessions for a few more weeks before he advances to facing hitters in live batting practice or simulated games.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Not throwing yet

    Sanchez (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez had been scheduled to throw off a mound late last month. It's not clear whether that session got cancelled or it happened and he had another setback, but either way Sanchez is shut down again. The righty hasn't made a game appearance at any level since 2020 due to several shoulder problems.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: To resume mound work

    Sanchez (shoulder) is set to throw a 20-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez is back to throwing off a mound after getting shut down for a bit in early May due to renewed right shoulder soreness. He's been able to do several flat-ground sessions without issue over the last few weeks. There remains no timetable for the 24-year-old's return to the major-league level, but he could start appearing in minor-league games sometime in late June or early July if he is able to avoid further setbacks.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Set to increase throwing distance

    Sanchez (shoulder) will increase his throwing distance to 105 feet this week, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez has thrown without discomfort for a couple weeks, and he is ready to see how his shoulder handles an increase in stress. The Marlins have taken the cautious route with Sanchez and figure to continue doing so.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Plays catch without issue

    Sanchez played catch Monday without experiencing discomfort, Noah Berger of FishStripes reports. While this doesn't seem like much of an accomplishment, it's definitely a small step forward for the right-hander, who felt soreness in his shoulder following his last appearance in extended spring training. If all goes well over the next few days, it would make sense for Miami to put him on the bump for a live bullpen session or a simulated game.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Slight shoulder soreness

    Sanchez experienced some slight right shoulder soreness after his last extended spring training outing, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. It's not ideal given Sanchez's lengthy history of shoulder problems, but the Marlins believe it's unrelated to the right-hander's surgery and they intend to have him back on a throwing program Monday. Sanchez hasn't made a game appearance at any level since 2020.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Pitching in extended spring

    Sanchez (shoulder) will throw one inning in an extended spring training game Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Sanchez continues to ramp things back up slowly as he works his way back from multiple seasons missed due to shoulder problems. It shouldn't be too long before he joins one of the Marlins' minor-league affiliates.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Checks out fine after sim game

    The Marlins announced Monday that Sanchez (shoulder) "felt good" after pitching in an extended spring training game over the weekend, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez is steadily building up from right shoulder surgery, and barring any setbacks, he looks like he should be ready to make his first appearance in affiliated ball since 2020 in the upcoming weeks. He'll throw a bullpen session Wednesday before likely facing hitters in another simulated game this weekend.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Pitching extended ST game Saturday

    Sanchez (shoulder) will pitch in an extended spring training game Saturday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports. After undergoing surgery on his right shoulder back in October, Sanchez first began facing hitters again earlier this month. Now, he's set to take the next step toward a minor-league rehab assignment. Sanchez hasn't appeared in a game at any level since 2020, so the Marlins will likely take it slow building Sanchez back up to the point where he can rejoin the Triple-A rotation.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Facing hitters again

    Sanchez (shoulder) threw 15 pitches Monday in a live batting practice session, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez, who was placed on Triple-A Jacksonville's 7-day injured list Friday, has taken the next step forward in his rehab from the arthroscopic right shoulder surgery he underwent in October by facing hitters, as he had previously been limited to throwing bullpen sessions during spring training. Because he hasn't pitched in a game since October 2020 and required another shoulder surgery in 2021, Sanchez will likely be ramped up slowly. He's still likely multiple weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment at a lower-level minor-league affiliate before he joins the Triple-A rotation.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Shipped to Triple-A

    The Marlins optioned Sanchez (shoulder) to Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Sanchez has been throwing in camp as he works his way back from multiple shoulder surgeries, but he needs time. The hope is that he'll become an option for the Marlins' rotation at some point around midseason.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Throws another bullpen session

    Sanchez (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Thursday, Joe Frisaro of ManOnSecondBaseball.com reports. Sanchez now has three mound workouts under his belt as he continues his recovery from October arthroscopic shoulder surgery. There's no exact timetable for when he might be an option for the Marlins, but the talented 24-year-old is making steady strides in his rehab program.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Set for another bullpen session

    Sanchez (shoulder) threw 15 pitches during a bullpen session Monday and will have another one Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Sanchez threw exclusively fastballs in the session, marking his first mound work of spring training. The 24-year-old has started the long process of returning from the arthroscopic shoulder surgery he underwent in October, and he'll likely be ramped up slowly in his throwing program over the coming months. In addition to rehabbing from shoulder surgery, Sanchez has reportedly dropped 46 pounds over the offseason as he prepares to return to game action for the first time since 2020. Sanchez had been a promising prospect prior to undergoing a pair of shoulder procedures the past two years, but his long-term outlook is uncertain.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Has lost 46 pounds

    Sanchez (shoulder) told Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com on Friday that he's lost about 46 pounds this offseason. This takes "best shape of your life" to a new level, although it does raise the question of just how much weight he'd put on the last couple of years while sidelined. Sanchez hasn't pitched in a game at any level since 2020, having undergone shoulder surgeries in July of 2021 and again last October. The right-hander said Friday that he's progressed to throwing bullpen sessions and he's hoping to be part of the Marlins' Opening Day roster. That might be a stretch given how much time he's missed, but it's clear he's found another gear when it comes to his motivation. At the very least, he'll be someone to keep a close eye on this spring.
