  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Goes five innings in no-decision

    Sanchez allowed three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over five innings in a no-decision against San Diego on Saturday. Sanchez wasn't sharp in the outing, as he threw only 57 of 98 pitches for strikes and tied a season high with three walks. He served up multiple homers for the fourth time in six starts but also tied his best mark this season by giving up three runs. Sanchez has yet to pick up a victory, but he did avoid taking his sixth straight loss. The veteran simply hasn't pitched well in his 16th major-league campaign, posting a 7.20 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over six starts.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Remains winless

    Sanchez (0-5) took the loss Monday as the Nationals were downed 6-3 by the Cubs, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks over five-plus innings. He struck out three. The 38-year-old served up homers to Nelson Velazquez and Christopher Morel, two kids nearly half his age, in the third inning and the Nats were never able to climb out of the hole. Sanchez tossed 56 of 91 pitches for strikes before exiting, and he's managed to get saddled with the loss in all five of his big-league starts this season.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Struggles in loss

    Sanchez (0-4) took the loss against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing five runs (four earned) on five hits while striking out two and walking three over 4.1 innings. It was a rough outing for Sanchez, who threw 62 of 97 pitches for strikes and allowed four earned runs across 4.1 frames. He allowed a solo homer to Pete Alonso in the third inning, then was pulled after loading the bases in the fifth. Daniel Vogelbach ended up hitting a grand slam off Sanchez's replacement, adding three earned runs to his line. The veteran righty has yet to allow fewer than three earned runs in his four appearances and has taken the loss in each game. His ERA sits at 7.65.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Saddled with third loss

    Sanchez (0-3) yielded six runs on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Cardinals. Sanchez coughed up three runs through five frames (all coming in the third inning) before allowing back-to-back home runs to Nolan Gorman and Lars Nootbaar in the sixth. The veteran righty has now been tagged with a loss in each of his three starts this season, posting a 7.47 ERA and 13:6 K:BB in the process. Sanchez is currently lined up to face the Mets at home next week.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Handed second loss

    Sanchez (0-2) took the loss during Saturday's 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings. Making his second start of the campaign, Sanchez loaded the bases in the first inning but escaped with just one run scoring and permitted additional runs in the second in the fourth. The 38-year-old struggled a bit with control as only 54 of 93 pitches went for strikes and he's walked two batters in both his starts. Through 10 innings, Sanchez has surrendered seven runs and 14 baserunners with nine strikeouts. He lines up to take the hill again at home against St. Louis next weekend.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Remains in rotation following break

    Sanchez will start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Sanchez made his season debut July 14 against Atlanta, working five innings while giving up four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in a losing effort. Though he wasn't overly impressive in his first MLB outing since the 2020 campaign, the 38-year-old right-hander should get an extended look in the Washington rotation nonetheless, given the dearth of appealing alternatives in the organization. Sanchez likely only warrants attention in NL-only formats at this time.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Five innings in return

    Sanchez (0-1) took the loss Thursday against Atlanta, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings. Sanchez got off to a rough start, walking Ronald Acuna and giving up a two-run homer to Dansby Swanson before recording an out. He then settled down and retired 11 of the next 12 batters he faced. The veteran righty gave up a another two-run shot with two outs in the fifth inning, this time to rookie Michael Harris. Thursday's start was Sanchez's first appearance since 2020 after sitting out 2021 and suffering a neck injury before debuting this year. He'll will presumably continue in Washington's rotation following the Midsummer Classic.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Activated for Thursday's start

    Sanchez (neck) was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his start against Atlanta on Thursday. The veteran right-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since late 2020, but he'll make his 2022 debut Thursday after missing most of the season's first half with a neck injury. Sanchez made four rehab starts in the minors and allowed one earned run over 5.1 frames in his last outing, so he shouldn't have any significant workload restrictions in his first start for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Entering rotation Thursday

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Sanchez (neck) will be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Thursday's game against Atlanta in Washington, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Sanchez's upcoming appearance will be his first in the big leagues since Sept. 26, 2020, after he chose not to sign with a team in the 2021 season and was then sidelined for the first three months of the current campaign while recovering from a cervical neck impingement. The 38-year-old right-hander recently wrapped up a four-start rehab assignment by covering 5.1 innings for Triple-A Rochester on Friday, so he shouldn't face any major restrictions from a workload standpoint as he slots into the Washington rotation. Even so, Sanchez won't make for a comfortable streaming option after he turned in a 6.62 ERA in 53 innings during his last stint in the majors with the Nationals two years ago.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Another rehab outing on tap

    Sanchez (neck) is scheduled to make his fourth rehab start Friday with Triple-A Rochester, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Sanchez covered 4.2 innings during his third rehab outing Sunday, and he'll take the mound again Friday with Rochester. The veteran right-hander has yet to pitch for the Nationals this season after being diagnosed with a cervical impingement in his neck April 11, but he appears to be closing in on his return from the injured list.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Reaches 60-pitch mark in rehab

    Sanchez (neck) struck out three over 2.2 innings and allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks Tuesday in his rehab start for Triple-A Rochester. Sanchez didn't show much control during his second rehab outing, but Nationals manager Dave Martinez told Jessica Camerato of MLB.com that the right-hander's effectiveness was hindered by the sun covering the strike zone for much of the day. He still managed to build up to 61 pitches in the start, so he may require only one or two more tune-up outings in the minors before becoming an option for the big-league rotation. Sanchez has been on the injured list all season due to a cervical neck impingement.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Initiates rehab assignment

    Sanchez (neck) made his first rehab start Thursday for the Nationals' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, striking out two over three innings while allowing one earned run on one hit and no walks. The appearance was Sanchez's first in affiliated ball since 2020, after he opted not sign with a team in 2021 before re-signing with the Nationals on a minor-league deal in March. The 38-year-old was expected to vie for a back-end spot in Washington's Opening Day rotation, but a cervical neck impingement forced him to the injured list and kept him throwing for one month. After completing his throwing progression, Sanchez is finally pitching in games again, but he'll likely need at least two more starts in the minors to get fully stretched out. Once he makes his return from the 60-day IL, Sanchez could still be in good shape to claim a rotation spot for Washington, especially if Stephen Strasburg (rib) is still on the shelf.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Building up through side sessions

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Sanchez (neck) upped his pitch count to 50 during his most recent bullpen session, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Sanchez is finally making some meaningful progress in his recovery from a cervical neck impingement that first cropped up in early April and kept him from throwing for a month. He's scheduled to report to the Nationals' spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Fla. in the coming days to continue throwing more bullpen sessions and simulated games. After that, Sanchez will likely begin a multi-start rehab assignment with either the Nationals' rookie-level Florida Complex League club or at one of the higher-level minor-league affiliates. He still appears to be several weeks away from making his 2022 debut for the big club.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Throws light bullpen session

    Sanchez (neck) threw 27 pitches in a light bullpen session Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Sanchez began his throwing program a month ago but isn't particularly close to returning to game action. The right-hander wasn't able to throw with much intensity during Friday's bullpen, and he'll likely require time at the team's extended spring training facility in Florida before he's ultimately cleared to begin a rehab assignment.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Starts throwing program

    Sanchez (neck) was spotted Tuesday throwing in the outfield with a team trainer, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. The light catch session marks the first known throwing activity for Sanchez since he was placed on the injured list April 11 with a cervical nerve impingement in his neck. Sanchez's lack of progress over the past month prompted Washington to move him to the 60-day IL last week, so he won't be eligible to make his 2022 debut with the big club until at least early June.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Sanchez (neck) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday. Sanchez has been dealing with a neck issue since shortly before his first scheduled start of the year. According to Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com, the veteran right-hander recently underwent an MRI which confirmed he's still dealing with the nerve impingement in his neck. Sanchez will essentially need a full spring training once cleared to throw.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Still not throwing

    Manager Dave Martinez said Sunday that Sanchez (neck) has yet to be cleared to begin a throwing program, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The 38-year-old was scratched from his season debut April 11 with cervical nerve impingement in his neck, and he remains sidelined from throwing nearly three weeks later. Sanchez is without a timetable for his return and shouldn't be expected back in the near future.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Not yet throwing

    Sanchez (neck) hasn't yet resumed throwing, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports. Sanchez has been doing strength and conditioning work on his neck and back recently, but the fact that he isn't yet throwing suggests that he'll likely be forced to miss at least one more turn through the rotation. If he ultimately misses another start, Josh Rogers should continue to take his place in the rotation.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: To miss at least one more start

    Sanchez (neck) won't be ready to return from the injured list for his next start, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Sanchez earned a spot in the Nationals' Opening Day rotation but hit the injured list with neck stiffness prior to making his first start of the year. He'll miss at least one more turn in the rotation, with his expected return date still unclear. Josh Rogers is expected to remain in his spot for now.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Hits injured list

    Sanchez was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a cervical nerve impingement in his neck, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Sanchez had been scheduled to make his season debut Monday against Atlanta, but that assignment will now go to Josh Rogers instead. It's not yet clear if Sanchez will be forced to miss more than one start.
