Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Downed by Jays on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (3-1) took the loss as the Braves were downed 5-4 by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, giving up four runs on five hits and four walks over five innings while striking out seven.

The veteran had trouble finding the plate in this one, throwing only 54 of 97 pitches for strikes, and the four walks were a season high. Sanchez still has a strong 2.55 ERA on the year heading into his next outing Tuesday at home against the Reds, but if he begins to stumble the Braves have plenty of options available to replace him in the rotation.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Receives another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Julio Teheran (thumb) came off the disabled list in dominant fashion Sunday with six no-hit innings against the Padres, though he did depart early after experiencing cramps in his right hamstring. Nonetheless, the return of Teheran leaves the Braves with a crowded rotation, and it appears Brandon McCarthy will be more at risk of losing his spot than Sanchez. Signed to a minor-league deal in March, Sanchez was expected to be little more than a spot starter or long reliever for the Braves this season, but he has made a compelling case to stick in the rotation for the long haul based on how well he has performed to date. Over his seven appearances (six starts) on the campaign, Sanchez has submitted a 1.93 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 32:11 K:BB in 37.1 innings. Unless he implodes Wednesday in Toronto, Sanchez should be well positioned for additional starting nods at the expense of McCarthy, who is expected to work out of the bullpen for at least this week.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Throws seven shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (3-0) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out six across seven scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Padres.

Sanchez was in complete control, as he allowed only two runners to reach scoring position throughout his start. He worked very efficiently -- he needed only 85 pitches to complete his seven innings of work and began 21 of the 25 batters he faced with a strike -- allowing him to match his longest outing of the season. Despite the strong performance, Sanchez may find himself out of the Braves' rotation shortly with Julio Teheran (thumb) expected to return from the disabled list Sunday and Mike Foltynewicz's (tricep) injury looking relatively minor.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Gets another start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will start Thursday's game against the Padres, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sanchez was expected to forfeit his spot in the rotation with Mike Soroka (shoulder) returning from the 10-day disabled list and starting Wednesday's series finale against the Mets, but the Braves will delay moving the veteran to the bullpen for at least one more week. With Julio Teheran (thumb) and Mike Foltynewicz (triceps) still on the mend, it appears the Braves may have wanted to build in an extra day of rest for both hurlers. Once both Teheran and Foltynewicz are cleared for starts, Sanchez will presumably transition to a bullpen role and lose most of his value in both NL-only and mixed-league settings.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Allows two earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (2-0) allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five across 5.1 innings to earn the win Saturday against the Dodgers.

Sanchez allowed a home run in the first inning to Max Muncy but then settled in to face the minimum number of batters across the next three innings to earn the win. Though he has been largely impressive this season, he has now allowed at least one home run in his last three starts, leading to 1.5 HR/9. While he has done well limiting baserunners through 30.1 innings, he'll likely have to improve on his home run prevention to maintain this level of performance moving forward.
