Sanchez (8-6) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit with two walks and six strikeouts across 8.1 innings while earning a victory over the Cubs on Friday.
The 35-year-old couldn't quite finish the job in the ninth, but this was still his longest outing of the year and quite a way to rebound after he yielded five runs in his last start. Since starting the year 0-6 with a 5.10 ERA, Sanchez is 8-0 with a 3.03 ERA. That's brought his overall numbers to a very respectable level -- 3.81 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 110 strikeouts in 130 innings this year. Sanchez will look to continue this hot stretch against the Marlins at home next Friday.
Sanchez didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 15-14 extra-innings loss to the Brewers, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks over four innings while striking out five.
The veteran right-hander needed 80 pitches (49 strikes) to get just 12 outs, but Sanchez did manage to keep the ball in the park -- no average feat on a night when the rest of the Nats staff served up seven homers over the final 10 innings. He'll take a 3.99 ERA and 104:46 K:BB through 121.2 innings into his next start Friday, on the road against the Cubs.
Sanchez allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk in five innings Sunday, striking out three batters in the win over the Mets. He did not factor in the decision.
All three runs that Sanchez allowed came during a rough second inning and he gave up just two hits the rest of the way. The 35-year-old now owns a 3.75 ERA and 99:42 K:BB over 117.2 innings in 2019. Looking for his eighth win of the year, he'll face the Brewers at home on Saturday.
Sanchez is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Mets in New York.
Erick Fedde had been lined up to take the hill Sunday, but Sanchez will instead be the beneficiary of a two-start week with the Nationals using Thursday's off day to reshuffle the rotation. Sanchez will thus draw a matchup against a surging Mets squad that represents a more formidable threat to the Nationals' wild-card hopes than the 54-58 Reds, whom Fedde is scheduled to face on Monday. Since going 0-6 with a 5.10 ERA in his first nine starts of the season before heading to the injured list, Sanchez has flipped the script upon returning May 29. In his 12 outings since, Sanchez has gone 7-0 with a 2.82 ERA.
Sanchez (7-6) picked up the win against the Giants on Tuesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits over six innings, striking out three and walking one as the Nationals won 5-3.
Sanchez has been on a nice run of late, as this was his fifth quality start in his last seven outings -- a stretch that has seen him pick up four wins and bring his ERA down to 3.67. He's also sporting a 1.31 WHIP and a 96:31 K:BB over 112.2 innings. The veteran draws the Reds at home in his next start.
Sanchez allowed four runs on 10 hits with one walk and six strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Braves on Wednesday.
The veteran faced two batters in the sixth but gave up back-to-back doubles to end his outing. While the Nationals scored three runs against the Braves bullpen to get Sanchez off the hook, his ERA still increased to 3.80 in the no-decision. Sanchez is 6-6 with a 1.34 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 106.2 innings this season, and he'll be on the hill again Tuesday at the Giants.
Sanchez allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out six over seven innings Friday against the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.
Sanchez certainly threw the ball well enough to earn the victory, but his offense struggled to put up enough run support, resulting in a no-decision. The 35-year-old has held the opposition to three or fewer runs in each of his last five outings, picking up three wins over that stretch. He owns a 3.63 ERA with 87 punchouts heading into his next start, which lines up for Wednesday against Atlanta.
Sanchez (6-6) picked up the win Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over five-plus innings while striking out four in a 5-3 victory over Atlanta.
The veteran right-hander threw 57 of 97 pitches for strikes and faded in the sixth inning, serving up a two-run homer to Brian McCann before getting the hook, but fortunately for the Nats they had a three-run lead at the time. Sanchez will take a 3.80 ERA and 81:38 K:BB through 94.2 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the Rockies.
Sanchez surrendered three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision Sunday against Philadelphia.
Sanchez cruised through the first three innings unscathed, but he gave up a run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings before being removed from the ballgame. The 35-year-old right-hander has now submitted three straight quality starts, fanning 12 over that stretch (18 innings). He owns a 3.71 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 77 strikeouts across 89.2 frames in 2019.
Sanchez (5-6) was charged with two runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks over six innings in a win over the Marlins on Thursday. He struck out two.
Since starting the season 0-6 with a 5.27 ERA, Sanchez has won five consecutive decisions to pull within one win of .500. He's gone six innings in each of his last five starts, posting a 3.00 ERA during that stretch. The right-hander threw 70 of 102 pitches for strikes Thursday and induced 13 swinging strikes. Assuming the Nats go with their three studs coming out of the break, Sanchez likely won't start again until July 16 in Baltimore.
Sanchez (4-6) struck out eight and picked up the win Friday, giving up one run on six hits and a walk over six innings in a 3-1 victory over the Tigers.
The veteran right-hander continues to turn his season around, delivering four quality starts in his last six trips to the mound and going 4-0 with a 2.29 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 32:5 K:BB through 35.1 innings over that stretch. Sanchez will look to keep rolling in his next outing Thursday, at home against the Marlins.
Sanchez didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 13-9 loss to Atlanta, allowing four runs on six hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six.
The right-hander stayed on the edges of the zone for the most part, throwing 60 of 97 pitches for strikes but generating 17 swinging strikes -- mainly with his changeup -- and Sanchez exited the game in line for his fourth win, only to see the Nats bullpen completely melt down. He'll take a 4.02 ERA and 65:29 K:BB through 71.2 innings into his next start Friday in Detroit.
Sanchez (3-6) gave up two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three through six innings Sunday, earning the win over the Diamondbacks.
Sanchez gave up a solo home run in the first inning but settled down and held the Diamondbacks in check after that. He has allowed a home run in each of the last three starts but also has delivered a quality start in three of his last four outings. The 35-year-old has a 3.84 ERA and 8.1 K/9 through 13 starts this season. Sanchez will look to keep it going in his next start Friday against the Braves at Nationals Park.
Sanchez (2-6) picked up the win against the White Sox on Monday, giving up one earned run on four hits over six innings, striking out one and walking one as the Nationals cruised to a 12-1 victory.
Despite the single strikeout, it was the third straight solid start for Sanchez. He's now given up just two earned over his last 17.1 innings. The stretch lowers his ERA to 3.92 and his WHIP to 1.39 over 59.2 innings ahead of his next start, which will see him take on the Diamondbacks in a Sunday home matchup.
Sanchez allowed one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across 5.1 innings during a no-decision against the White Sox on Wednesday.
The right-hander yielded a homer to Yoan Moncada with one out in the sixth, the last batter he faced. Although he didn't make it through that frame, Sanchez was effective once again. Unfortunately, the Nationals bullpen blew a late lead, costing him the win. Still, Sanchez has allowed just Wednesday's one run in his last 12.2 innings. Despite an ugly 1-6 record, his 4.19 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 53.2 innings continue to afford him some fantasy value. Sanchez will face the White Sox again on the road Monday in his next start.
Sanchez (1-6) picked up the win in Wednesday's 14-4 rout of Atlanta, giving up only one hit and one walk over six scoreless innings while striking out seven.
Activated off the IL earlier in the day, the 35-year-old put together what was easily his best performance of the year, taking a perfect game into the sixth inning before Ozzie Albies broke it up with a single. Sanchez still has a lot to prove -- he has only two quality starts in 10 outings -- but now that he's healthy, he might be able to re-discover his 2018 form. He'll carry a 4.47 ERA and 48:26 K:BB through 48.1 innings into his next start June 5, at home against the White Sox.
Sanchez (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start against the Braves on Wednesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Sanchez is set to rejoin the starting rotation after spending just 12 days on the shelf with a left hamstring injury. The veteran right-hander will likely be limited to around 75-80 pitches in his first start back, as he only worked his pitch count into the 50s during his final simulated game before being activated. James Bourque was optioned to the minors to make room for Sanchez.
Sanchez (hamstring) will be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Braves, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez will end up spending only a couple days more than the 10-day minimum on the IL with left hamstring soreness. The 35-year-old has a 5.10 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 41:25 K:BB through 42.1 innings (nine starts) this season.
Sanchez (hamstring) may return from the injured list to make a start Wednesday at Miami, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez has been on the injured list since May 17 but was jogging before the team's contest on Monday. Manager Davey Martinez said, "He looked pretty good," but that he would have to consult with trainers before any firm plans were made. The team's starter for Wednesday has yet to be determined, though it will likely be either Sanchez or Kyle McGowin.
Sanchez (hamstring) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Sanchez threw 41 pitches in a simulated game Friday and will require another bullpen session before the Nationals decide on his next step. He could return to start Wednesday against the Braves, but the team hasn't ruled out a rehab start.
