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.

Fantasy News

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Resumes throwing

    The Marlins announced Tuesday that Sanchez (shoulder) is asymptomatic while throwing and rehabbing at the team's extended spring training facility in Jupiter, Fla., MLB.com reports. Sanchez was placed on the 15-day injured list June 2, with the Marlins deactivating him two days after he saw a significant dip in velocity in his May 31 start versus the Rangers. While it's encouraging that Sanchez didn't face an extended shutdown from throwing, the Marlins will likely proceed slowly with the right-hander, who has previously underwent two surgeries on his shoulder. The Marlins may not have a spot in the rotation available for Sanchez if Edward Cabrera (shoulder) and Ryan Weathers (finger) beat him back from the IL.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Out with shoulder inflammation

    Sanchez was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The right-hander allowed two runs and threw just 53 pitches over four-plus innings Friday against the Rangers, and the injury may have played a role in the brevity of that outing. The severity of the injury is unclear, but Sanchez will be unavailable for at least the next couple weeks. The Marlins have three scheduled days off in the next nine days, so they won't immediately need to replace Sanchez in the rotation.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Short outing Friday

    Sanchez came away with a no-decision in Friday's 8-2 win over the Rangers, giving up two runs on four hits and a walk over four-plus innings. He didn't strike out a batter. After throwing at least 76 pitches in each of his three prior starts, Sanchez saw his workload ratcheted back in this one as he tossed only 53 pitches (29 strikes), getting the hook after allowing back-to-back hits to lead off the fifth inning. The right-hander is still looking for his first win of the season -- and first since Sept. 13, 2020. He has completed five innings only once since getting a chance to start, but he figures to continue plugging a hole in the Marlins' rotation until Edward Cabrera (shoulder) gets healthy or the team decides to bring Max Meyer back up. Sanchez will carry a 6.06 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 17:14 K:BB through 35.2 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home next weekend against the Guardians.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Goes five innings in loss

    Sanchez (0-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over five innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two. Sanchez got off to a rough start, walking Corbin Carroll in the opening at-bat before surrendering back-to-back doubles with two outs in the frame, leading to two runs coming home for Arizona. The right-hander would allow another run on a sac fly in the second, but settled in nicely from that point on, giving up just two infield singles over his final three frames. It marked Sanchez's longest outing of the season, though he's now been tagged with the loss in each of his last two starts. He's also walked multiple batters in all four outings this month.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Extends to 81 pitches

    Sanchez did not factor into the decision Monday against the Tigers, allowing three runs (zero earned) on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out two. An error opened the door for a three-run second that was entirely uncredited to Sanchez, who was generally effective throughout the rest of his outing. It was the 10th appearance and fourth start of the season for Sanchez, who allowed 10 earned runs over 10.2 innings during his previous three starts. Most encouraging for Sanchez is that he was able to work his way up to 81 pitches after tossing no more than 68 in any of his previous outings. He's tentatively scheduled to make his next start over the weekend at home when the Mets make the trek to Miami.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Tosses four innings

    Sanchez allowed two runs on three hits and three walks over four innings in a no-decision Sunday. He struck out two during the win over Oakland. Sanchez threw four innings for the second straight outing and would've been in line for the victory if he went one more Sunday. He kept the A's scoreless through three frames before coughing up a pair of runs in the fourth. Sanchez lowered his ERA to 7.50 with a lackluster 11:7 K:BB through 18 frames. As of now, he's likely sliding back to the bullpen with Braxton Garrett (shoulder) and Jesus Luzardo (elbow) both expected to return soon.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Draws another start Sunday

    Sanchez is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Athletics in Oakland, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Sanchez will be making his third straight turn through the Miami rotation, though he should be more stretched out for a traditional starting role Sunday after covering 2.2 and four innings in his first two outings upon moving from the bullpen. He's been hit hard while taking no-decisions against Atlanta and Colorado, giving up eight earned runs on 12 hits and one walk between those starts. With Braxton Garrett (shoulder) likely trending toward a return from the 15-day injured list early next week, Sanchez could move back to the bullpen following Sunday's outing.

  • Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Rough opening frame

    Sanchez did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs on seven hits over four innings against the Rockies. He struck out three. The Rockies jumped on Sanchez quickly Tuesday, scoring five times in the opening inning, with three coming on an Elehuris Montero home run. However, Sanchez would settle in and hold the Rockies scoreless over his subsequent three innings as the Marlins' opener, allowing just one additional hit. It's been a shaky start to the season overall for the 25-year-old right-hander -- Sanchez's ERA is up to 8.36 with a 1.71 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB across 11 innings.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
