Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Recalled by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled by the Nationals on Monday.

Sanchez spent a brief period on the big-league roster earlier in the season but did not get into a game. He's hit .271 in 62 career games at the highest level but has zero home runs and a 1.5 percent walk rate, giving him a 67 wRC+. Pitcher Erick Fedde was optioned in a corresponding move, leaving Sanchez as extra infield insurance with Anthony Rendon still battling an elbow injury.

Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals optioned Sanchez to Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Washington was in need of an extra arm in the bullpen for Sunday's series finale with the Mets, so Sanchez was deemed an expendable piece as the team called up right-hander Joe Ross in a corresponding move. The team's decision to send Sanchez to Harrisburg rather than across the country to Triple-A Fresno suggests the infielder may only be in the minors for the minimum 10 days before returning to Washington. In the meantime, the Nationals will have to get by without a true backup at shortstop behind Wilmer Difo.

Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Mike Rizzo confirmed Wednesday that Sanchez would be recalled from Triple-A Fresno ahead of the Nationals' game against the Phillies later in the day, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Rather than bringing up top shortstop prospect Carter Kieboom, the Nationals will instead summon Sanchez to provide the team with some depth in the middle infield after Trea Turner (finger) suffered a non-displaced fracture Tuesday that will send him to the injured list. Turner is considered out indefinitely, so Sanchez could be in store for a lengthy stay with the Nationals. Washington envisions Sanchez filling more of a super-utility role while he's up in the majors, making Wilmer Difo the more likely of the two players to regularly fill in for Turner in the starting nine.

Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Could open season in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez could win a spot on the bench coming out of camp if Howie Kendrick (hamstring) isn't ready by Opening Day, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The 28-year-old still has a minor-league option remaining, so he'd mostly likely be sent to Triple-A Fresno once Kendrick is healthy. Sanchez offers plenty of defensive versatility, playing 20 or more games at second base, shortstop and third base in the minors last year, but offensively, an empty batting average would seem to be his fantasy ceiling if he does somehow see significant playing time for the Nats.

Nationals' Adrian Sanchez: Returns to action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (mouth) went 0-for-2 during Saturday's spring win over the Twins.

Sanchez left Friday's practice early as he underwent a root canal the night before, but was able to come off the bench for the Nationals in Saturday's game. The minimal absence shouldn't have much impact on the 28-year-old's pursuit of a bench role.
