  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Back in Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.

    Sanchez was called up to serve as the 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets. He started the nightcap but was only asked to throw 2.1 innings, giving up two runs. The outing raised his season ERA to 5.84. He'll remain one of the Phillies' top options whenever they need an extra starter.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Takes loss in spot start

    Sanchez (0-1) took the loss and allowed two runs on two hits and a walk, striking out two in 2.1 innings in a 6-1 loss Sunday against the Mets.

    Sanchez limited the damage to a two-out, two-run home run to Pete Alonso in the first inning. Zach Eflin was added to the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, resulting in Sanchez being recalled for the spot start. While the lefty was optioned to Lehigh Valley six days ago, he did not make an appearance at Triple-A. It's no surprise that he turned in a short start Sunday, as he had been used in a long-relief role with the Phillies over the first month and hadn't been stretched out.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Making spot start Sunday

    The Phillies recalled Sanchez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and designated him as the 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets. He's scheduled to start Game 2 of the twin bill.

    The 25-year-old will be picking up his second big-league start and first of 2022 after the Phillies moved Zach Eflin -- who was initially scheduled to take the hill for the second game of the twin bill -- to the COVID-19-related injured list. While it's possible that Eflin will miss more than one turn through the rotation due to MLB's COVID-19-related protocols, Sanchez may be headed back to Lehigh Valley following the doubleheader regardless of how he performs. Before he was optioned to the minors May 1, Sanchez made four appearances out of the big-league bullpen and gave up six earned runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out 10 over 10 innings. He maxed out at 3.1 innings and 65 pitches across those four appearances, so he likely can't be counted on to work deep into his start Sunday.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent down Sunday

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez gave up at least one run in each of his four relief appearances early in the year, and he'll head to the minors since the Phillies need to trim their active roster to 26 players by Monday. The southpaw posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 10 innings with the Phillies to begin the year.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Recalled by Phillies

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    Sanchez was sent to Lehigh Valley at the end of July, and he posted a 4.93 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 34.2 innings across eight minor-league appearances since then. He'll serve as a low-leverage reliever for the Phillies after right-hander Matt Moore (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Sanchez will be available during Sunday's bullpen game, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Sanchez made his first career start in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Nationals and allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one-third of an inning. He'll head back to the minors after the Phillies acquired several pitchers ahead of Friday's trade deadline.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Woeful in first career start

    Sanchez didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Nationals after allowing four runs on three hits and a walk across one-third of an inning. He struck out one.

    Sanchez was recalled to make the first start of his big-league career, but he struggled mightily and couldn't even escape the first inning. The southpaw has made five appearances for the Phillies on the season and the results haven't been encouraging, as he's posted an 8.22 ERA and 2.35 WHIP through 7.2 innings. He's expected to be returned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Starting second game

    Sanchez was recalled to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    The start will be the first of Sanchez's big-league career. He owns a 3.68 ERA and an 8:4 K:BB in 7.1 innings of relief at the highest level this season. The Phillies didn't play Wednesday and got a complete game from Zack Wheeler in the first game of the day, however, so their bullpen should be well-rested, meaning Sanchez may not be asked to pitch deep into the contest.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent to Lehigh Valley

    The Phillies optioned Sanchez to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

    Sanchez will cede his spot on the active roster and in the bullpen to Chase Anderson, who was reinstated from the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Since he worked two innings in relief in Saturday's blowout loss to Atlanta, Sanchez was unlikely to be available out of the Philadelphia bullpen for the next two days.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Picks up win in relief

    Sanchez (1-0) earned the win in relief Sunday against the Red Sox after allowing one run on four hits and a walk across three innings, fanning two.

    Sanchez worked behind opener Brandon Kintzler, who only tossed one inning, and he limited the damage just enough to come away with his first win of the campaign. This was just Sanchez's second appearance of the season and he's not expected to play a big role out of the bullpen moving forward.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Will serve as bulk reliever

    Sanchez will serve as a bulk reliever Sunday against the Red Sox, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez was recalled Sunday as the Phillies are without several of their pitchers due to contact tracing. Brandon Kintzler will start the game and is expected to face the first four batters. Sanchez will relieve him and should work several innings.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Recalled and may start

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday and could start against the Red Sox, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez was recalled after four Philadelphia pitchers were placed on the COVID-19 related injured list. Among those players was Aaron Nola, who was scheduled to start Sunday. Though no plans have been made official by the team, Sanchez served as a starter for Triple-A Lehigh Valley and is on regular rest. He's posted a 4.46 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in the minors this season, while also managing a 44:26 K:BB across 38.1 innings.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent back to Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    Sanchez was recalled prior to Sunday's game against the Nationals and wound up making his major-league debut during the contest. He tossed 1.1 innings of scoreless ball, striking out two along the way. Despite the successful first big-league outing, he'll head back to Triple-A for the time being.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Called up, makes debut

    The Phillies recalled Sanchez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Sunday's 12-6 loss to the Nationals. He made his MLB debut out of the bullpen, covering 1.1 scoreless innings while giving up a hit and striking out two.

    Philadelphia placed long reliever Chase Anderson on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Sanchez entered the contest while the Phillies were already trailing by six runs, so he's seemingly being viewed as a low-leverage reliever or mop-up man while he's up with the big club.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent down again

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

    Sanchez has been called up twice by the Phillies this season but has still yet to make his major-league debut. Both of his stints on the roster lasted just one day. Enyel De Los Santos's contract was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Recalled by Phillies

    Sanchez was recalled by the Phillies on Monday.

    Sanchez was called up for the first time in mid-April but did not yet the chance to make his MLB debut. He'll give the team an extra lefty in the bullpen during his time on the roster. Scott Kingery was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Shifts back to alt site

    The Phillies optioned Sanchez to their alternate training site Tuesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Sanchez will leave Philadelphia without making an appearance, as he went unused out of the bullpen in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Giants following his call-up earlier that day. Left-hander Bailey Falter will take Sanchez's spot in the bullpen and on the 26-man active roster.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Joining big-league roster

    Sanchez was recalled by the Phillies on Monday.

    Sanchez earns his first career call-up as the Phillies seek to replace a trio of players who landed on the COVID-19 injured list. He's made just a single appearance at the Triple-A level. He has a starter's build (6-foot-5) and four-pitch repertoire, but none of his secondary pitches are particularly promising and his command has been unreliable, so he'll likely wind up in the bullpen long-term if he's able to carve out a big-league role.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Joins minor-league camp

    The Phillies optioned Sanchez to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The 24-year-old lefty has made only one career appearance above the High-A level, so he wasn't a legitimate candidate to claim a spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster. Sanchez is expected to begin the season as a member of the rotation at Triple-A Lehigh Valley or Double-A Reading.
