Giants pitcher Aaron Sanchez (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
Sanchez is expected to throw two innings during Monday’s rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento. It's unclear how many starts will he make in Triple-A but Sanchez is trending in the right direction to come off the injured list soon. Sanchez has been out since the beginning of May with right biceps tightness.
Giants RHP Aaron Sanchez (biceps) could resume throwing next week.
Sanchez landed on the IL in the beginning of May due to biceps tightness. He's aiming to return to San Francisco's rotation sometime in June.
Aaron Sanchez will be placed on the IL with biceps tightness, according to Gabe Kapler.
Sanchez hasn't had much velocity lately, so there was speculation he was battling through an injury. Still, the veteran was putting up a solid bounce-back season, with a 3.18 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. In deeper leagues, fantasy managers can stash Sanchez if they have a free IL spot, but given his mediocre strikeout rate and lengthy injury history, he can be cut in all leagues consisting of 12 teams or fewer.
RHP Aaron Sanchez took a no-decision on Tuesday when he surrendered four runs on seven hits with one walk and four punchouts in the Giants' 12-4 win over the Rockies in Game 1 of a doubleheader.
Sanchez only allowed three base runners over the first three innings but ran into some serious trouble in the fourth inning. He allowed three straight singles before Raimel Tapia swatted a grand slam. The Giants put up a whopping 10 runs in the first inning so Sanchez was in no danger of losing the game but the grand slam was enough to end his night. The so-so outing raised his season ERA to 3.18 to go along with a 1.20 WHIP. He gets the Padres at home in his next turn.
RHP Aaron Sanchez took a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed a pair of runs on one hit with five walks and six strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in the Giants' 7-5 loss to the Rockies in extra-innings.
Sanchez only allowed one hit over his 4 2/3 innings, a two-run double by Charlie Blackmon in the top of the first. He walked a season-worst five batters and was fortunate the Rockies didn't cause more damage but he did also record six punchouts, a season-best. He still owns a very solid 2.22 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 20:9 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings (five starts). He'll get a rematch with these same Rockies, this time on the road, in his next turn.
