Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Resumes throwing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) resumed his throwing program Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Sanchez has been dealing with shoulder inflammation since early April but was able to start a throwing program later that month. He's continued to slowly work his way back from the injury, only to hit a snag last week when he was forced to pause his throwing program because of shoulder soreness. Fortunately, he was able to resume flat-ground work Tuesday, and if all goes well in coming weeks, he should remain on track for a return to game action sometime in the first half of July.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Temporarily shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) will pause his throwing program for a few days as a result of shoulder soreness, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

As of now, the Marlins appear to be optimistic that this will be just a minor setback for Sanchez as he works his way back from shoulder inflammation. The right-hander began a throwing program in mid-April, and all had gone well up until this point. The hope is that the highly touted prospect will be able to resume throwing in the next few days.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Bullpen session scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez has been dealing with inflammation in his right shoulder since the end of March. The team has brought him along very cautiously, prioritizing his long-term health over maximizing his innings in a season in which they look like clear underdogs. While his progress has been slow, it's been fairly steady, and he remains on track to return sometime in June if he can continue avoiding setbacks.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Throwing from 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Sanchez (shoulder) has increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 120 feet, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Though he's steered clear of setbacks since being diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation in early April, Sanchez has been trudging along slowly in the recovery process. The right-hander was cleared to up his throwing distance to 105 feet at the beginning of the month, but he's only taken a marginal step forward two weeks later. Given the ramp-up time he'll require once he's eventually cleared to face hitters, Sanchez is likely at least a month away from making his 2021 MLB debut.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Targeting June return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins are hopeful that Sanchez (shoulder) could return in June, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Sanchez recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 105 feet, and he should progress to 120 feet in the near future. The right-hander could resume mound work after that, but he'll likely require several weeks to ramp up before he's cleared to make his 2021 debut.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Pushes up throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 105 feet, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Sanchez is expected to play catch from 105 feet for at least a few more days before pushing that distance up to 120 feet. After that, Sanchez could be cleared to start throwing off a mound, but he'll likely require a ramp-up period of at least 3-to-4 weeks before the Marlins clear him to make his 2021 debut. The 22-year-old righty may be tough to justify holding in shallow leagues or in deeper leagues with limited or no injured-list spots, given that his debut isn't yet imminent along with the fact that he could be rusty coming off the shoulder injury.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Increases throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) has been throwing from 60 feet without problem, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez has increased his throwing distance from 45 to 60 feet within roughly the last week. However, his return is far from imminent, as general manager Kim Ng told the media Wednesday that Sanchez is "a ways out" from taking the mound in game action.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Not close to returning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Kim Ng said Wednesday that Sanchez (shoulder) is "still a ways out" from returning to game action, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez has been dealing with mild inflammation in his right shoulder since the start of the regular season, and the team has been bringing him along slowly given his injury history. The right-hander has been throwing at the team's alternate training site, but he still doesn't have a firm timetable to return to game action.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Throwing from 45 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) has been throwing from 45 feet at the Marlins' alternate training site, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez underwent an MRI in early April that revealed mild inflammation at the back of his right shoulder. The right-hander has resumed a throwing program, but the team figures to bring him along slowly given his history of injuries to begin his career. Nick Neidert will serve as the Marlins' fifth starter until Sanchez is fully healthy.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: MRI reveals shoulder inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez's MRI revealed mild inflammation at the back of his right shoulder Friday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

All things considered, the news could have been a lot worse for Sanchez and the Marlins, though any shoulder issue is a worry for a pitcher. That's doubly true for a pitcher like Sanchez, who's already battled his fair share of injuries despite being just 22 years old. He doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, but he no longer seems to be in the mix when the Marlins first need a fifth starter April 14. Even when he's ready to make his season debut, the Marlins -- who were already planning on capping his innings this season -- will likely continue to be very cautious with him given his health track record.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

The 22-year-old was removed early from Wednesday's simulated game after experiencing "slight discomfort" in his right shoulder, and the team is now attempting to determine the extent of the injury. The Marlins are likely to exercise caution with the young righty, but the specifics of Sanchez's recovery won't come into focus until after the MRI results are announced.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez reported "slight discomfort" in his throwing shoulder Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez started a simulated game at the Marlins' alternate training site Wednesday but was removed early due to his injury. The Marlins were prioritizing his long-term health by keeping him off the Opening Day roster, but it's safe to assume that the team will be extra cautious with the 22-year-old now that he's dealing with a shoulder issue. The team will reevaluate Sanchez before determining the next steps in his recovery.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Won't break camp in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will be optioned to the Marlins' alternate training site to open the season, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez has plenty of potential, as he's been one of the game's top pitching prospects for several years and looked good in his seven-start debut last season, cruising to a 3.46 ERA. He also has a history of injury troubles, averaging just 12.8 starts per year over the last five seasons. The Marlins are prioritizing his long-term health and have been bringing him along very slowly this spring despite the fact that he's not currently dealing with any injuries. He should certainly be able to help fantasy teams when available, but the fact that he's being optioned right away is indicative of just how careful the team will be with him this season. Early off days mean the Marlins won't need a fifth starter until April 14, which could be the date Sanchez returns to the big leagues.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Status remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will throw on Tuesday with the hopes of increasing his workload enough to begin the season in the rotation, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Sanchez threw 61 pitches in his final official spring outing Thursday, his highest total of the exhibition season. However, manager Don Mattingly said he wants Sanchez to be able to throw five innings and a minimum of 75 pitches before making his first start of the season. Regardless of when Sanchez first takes the mound in regular season action, the Marlins figure to monitor his workload very carefully throughout the campaign.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Hits 101 mph in second spring game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez twice reached 101 mph with his fastball over three perfect innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Remarkably, he didn't record a strikeout, but the Nats could only muster weak contact as Sanchez pounded the strike zone with his overpowering stuff. The right-hander thinks he'll be ready to go for Opening Day and will slot into the Marlins' rotation right away, but the club has already stated it will keep a very close eye on his workload this season. Whether that results in Sanchez being skipped in the rotation on occasion, throwing fewer pitches per start, or both remains to be seen.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Lights up radar gun in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez allowed two hits and a walk across 1.2 scoreless innings in Monday's exhibition against the Astros.

Sanchez made his spring debut later than he had hoped after problems with his visa and a false positive COVID-19 test, but he flashed plenty of velocity in his first game action, touching 100 mph twice against the third batter he faced, Carlos Correa, according to Christina De Nicola of MLB.com. "I felt very well for my first spring training game in 2021," stated Sanchez via an interpreter. "I was just going out there with the same plan as always. First inning, I was missing my spot a few times, and same thing happened again in the second." Per De Nicola, Sanchez will continue to follow a five-day progression moving forward, with his next outing slated for Saturday against Washington, where he'll be scheduled to hurl an additional inning or 15-20 pitches.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Spring debut set for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is scheduled to throw two innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

That would leave the right-hander enough time to make three spring training starts before the end of camp, assuming he doesn't have any issues. "As long as they [the staff] stay on track, he'll be on a five-day program now," manager Don Mattingly said Saturday. Monday's game will actually be Sanchez's Grapefruit League debut as a Marlin, as he didn't pitch either of the last two springs after being acquired from the Phillies as the centerpiece of the J.T. Realmuto trade. That may not leave the 22-year-old enough time to get fully stretched out before Opening Day, and with the team expected to manage his workload this season, Sanchez could have his first turn or two in the rotation skipped or truncated.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Dialing it up on back fields
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez threw 26 pitches in a simulated inning Thursday and touched 96 mph with his fastball, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

The right-hander was facing some of the Marlins' top hitting prospects, including JJ Bleday, as he continues to be brought along slowly following a delayed start to training camp due to visa issues and a false positive COVID-19 test. Sanchez figures to be a key member of the Miami rotation this season, but the club has already stated they will cap the 22-year-old's innings and the coaching staff isn't in a rush to get him ready for Opening Day. As yet, there's been no indication when Sanchez might see his first Grapefruit League action of the spring.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: Will have innings capped
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will be on an innings limit this season, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. "We're gonna have to put an inning cap on his workload," Marlins pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. said Tuesday. "We've sat down and we have a plan for that."

The right-hander had a delayed beginning to his spring training and may not be fully ramped up by Opening Day, but Miami does have the option of skipping Sanchez entirely through the first two turns of the rotation thanks to a couple early off days. That likely wouldn't be the end of the team's attempts to limit his workload, however, as the focus will be on having Sanchez available for starts in September, not April and May. The 22-year-old threw 47 innings in 2020 between the regular season and playoffs after tossing only 114 frames between High-A and Double-A in 2019, and the Marlins do have plenty of options to make spot starts in order to give Sanchez, and the rest of their young rotation, extra rest over the summer.

Marlins' Sixto Sanchez: May be limited in first '21 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly suggested Monday that Sanchez may be limited to around 75 pitches in his first start of the season, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Though he has yet to make his Grapefruit League debut while the Marlins are electing to bring him along more slowly this spring than the team's other projected starters, Sanchez still appears on track to be ready to go for Opening Day. He completed a bullpen session Sunday, and the Marlins plan for him to throw a live batting practice session later this week before potentially clearing him for Grapefruit League action by mid-March. Based on where he currently stands in his build-up program, Sanchez probably won't be able to take on a normal starter's workload in his 2021 debut, but he should only need one or two starts to get his arm equipped to handle 100-pitch outings.
