Sanchez was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday.
Sanchez made just two appearances during his most recent stint with the big club, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. He was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Wednesday's starter, Erick Fedde.
Sanchez was recalled by the Nationals on Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez has appeared in 16 games for the Nationals this season, hitting .235/.235/.235 over 17 plate appearances. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time with the club. Max Scherzer landed on the paternity list in a corresponding move.
Sanchez was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Friday.
Sanchez's latest stint with the Nationals lasted less than a week. He went 0-for-1 in his only plate appearance. Joe Ross was recalled in a corresponding move.
Sanchez was recalled from Double-A Harrisburg by the Nationals on Sunday.
Sanchez was sent to Harrisburg in late May but makes his way back to Washington and will likely return to a utility role. The 28-year-old is 4-for-16 with one run scored in 14 major-league games this season.
Sanchez was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Matt Adams (shoulder) was activated from the injured list, so Sanchez was sent down in a corresponding move. He will continue to provide organizational infield depth going forward.
Sanchez went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.
The 28-year-old was thought to be the 25th man on the roster, but the Nats instead elected to demote Wilmer Difo when Trea Turner came off the IL, allowing Sanchez to remain in the majors in a bench role. His fantasy value remains minimal, however -- he hasn't started a game since May 8.
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.
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.
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.
Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Sanchez had an unimpressive spring, hitting .213/.283/.255. He's been called up as a bench option in each of the last two seasons and could get a similar opportunity this season, but he's unlikely to play a significant role.
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.
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 he 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.
Sanchez left Friday's practice early after undergoing a root canal the night before, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
The procedure should have a minimal effect on Sanchez's buildup for the regular season, as he didn't even miss a full day of workouts. He's in camp fighting for a bench infield spot after posting a mediocre .276/.288/.345 line in 28 games last season.
Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
The 28-year-old infielder was expected to be back up in September, given his place on the 40-man roster, but he is unlikely to play much. Sanchez logged a .234/.281/.349 slash line with four home runs and 10 steals in 295 plate appearances at Triple-A.
Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Wednesday's starter, Stephen Strasburg (neck), who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. The 28-year-old didn't register an at-bat during his most recent stint with the Nationals, leaving him with a .174/.174/.217 slash line through 15 major-league games this season.
Sanchez was recalled by the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Sanchez is up along with Andrew Stevenson to replace Matt Adams and Daniel Murphy, who were traded as the Nationals effectively conceded the playoff race. Sanchez can fill in around the infield but has hit just .245/.260/.330 in 98 career major-league appearances.
Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez was removed from the roster to make room for Daniel Murphy's long-awaited return from the disabled list following offseason knee surgery. Sanchez is just 4-for-23 with the Nationals so far this season.
Sanchez will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader to serve as the 26th man, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez has appeared in five games with Washington this season and will provide a little extra depth around the diamond during Saturday's nightcap. Through 24 contest with Syracuse, he's hitting .298/.352/.426 with one home run and eight RBI.
Sanchez was sent down to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Sanchez appeared in five games for the Nationals during his brief stay with the club, going 3-for-14 with a double and one RBI. The infielder will go back to Syracuse and receive everyday starts while continuing to provide organizational depth. In a corresponding move, Anthony Rendon (toe) was reinstated from the disabled list.
Sanchez was called up to the majors Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old played in 34 games for the Nationals last season, appearing at second base, third base and shortstop. He posted a respectable .268 average, but the overall picture wasn't particularly pretty. It took a .413 BABIP to get him to that average and he walked just 1.3 percent of the time while posting a 33.3 percent strikeout rate and not hitting for much power. His overall line of .268/.288/.366 is very much a utility profile, which is all he's likely to be in his stay with the big-league club.
