Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Rounding into form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez gave up two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

The 35-year-old hasn't been dominant this spring -- he has a 5:3 K:BB through 13 innings -- but Sanchez makes his living off weak contact, and he's been producing plenty of it, with Atlanta prospect Austin Riley's solo shot in the fifth inning being the first homer the right-hander has allowed in camp. Sanchez will take his turn as the Nats' No. 4 starter, setting him up to face the Phillies at home Apr. 1 to kick off his campaign.

Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Sharp outing against Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez tossed four scoreless innings in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, scattering four hits and striking out one.

The veteran right-hander induced plenty of weak contact and looks nearly ready for the regular season. Sanchez almost certainly won't be able to repeat last year's 2.93 ERA with the Braves -- his 3.62 FIP was nearly a full run higher, and his .255 BABIP against is due for major regression -- but he can still provide valuable innings at the back of the Nats' rotation.

Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Links up with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract with the Nationals on Thursday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Nationals continue to shore up their starting pitching depth, as Sanchez joins Patrick Corbin as offseason additions to a rotation that already features Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The soon-to-be 35-year-old right-hander enjoyed a bounce-back season with the Braves in 2018, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 135:42 K:BB in 136.2 innings of work (24 starts, one relief appearance). He figures to slot into the back of the team's starting rotation.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Takes Game 2 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (0-1) gave up three runs on five hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in a loss to the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Division Series. He struck out three.

Sanchez gave up two home runs through his 4.2 innings, and that is all Clayton Kershaw would need to help give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead in the series. Limiting the long ball had been a major key to Sanchez's success this season, as he sported a 0.99 HR/9 in the regular season.

Braves' Anibal Sanchez: Starting Game 2 of NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brian Snitker said Sanchez will start Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Friday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Sanchez will follow Mike Foltynewicz in the rotation. The veteran right-hander was one of the biggest pitching surprises in 2018, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 135:42 K:BB in 136.2 innings. In seven career playoff appearances (six starts), Sanchez owns a 2.79 ERA with 43 strikeouts across 38.2 innings.
