Anibal Sanchez placed on 10-day DL with hamstring injury

Anibal Sanchez was placed on the 10-day disabled list after hurting himself during pregame warmups. INF Johan Camargo has been reinstated from the DL.

Fantasy Impact

It's an unfortunate injury and the initial look of the injury seemed sever enough to place his leg in an air cast. Keep an eye on his status for more news on when he may return from the DL. Sanchez is not worth holding onto unless fantasy owners have the room to stash the veteran pitcher.

Anibal Sanchez carted off with leg injury

Anibal Sanchez was carted off the field with an air cast around his leg after falling during a pregame run on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The exact nature of the injury and its severity are unknown at this point, but it certainly doesn't look good. Sanchez's start on Thursday could be in jeopardy and a DL stint could be in store for the veteran. Keep an eye on updates.

Anibal Sanchez out-pitches Yu Darvish Friday

Anibal Sanchez allowed three hits, no runs, and one walk while striking out six over six innings Friday in the Braves' 4-0 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley. He'll face Vince Velasquez and the Phillies next, Wednesday in Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

That's two good starts in a row for Sanchez, the other coming against the Rockies at Coors. The Braves will continue to pitch him as long as he's productive, especially with concerns over Brandon McCarthy's health.

Anibal Sanchez agrees to deal with Minnesota Twins

Anibal Sanchez has agreed to a one-year deal with the Minnesota Twins, according to Twins beat reporter Rhett Bollinger on Twitter. The deal is for $2.5 million but is not guaranteed and is contingent on him making the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez's $16 million option was unsurprisingly not picked up by the Detroit Tigers after the season, and at nearly 34 years old his best baseball may be behind him. His ERA in 2017 was north of 6.00 despite his 8.89 strikeout percentage being his best since 2013, while his fastball averaged 91.2 MPH and has consistently decreased since 2013 when it hovered around 94.2 MPH. He will presumably have the chance to win a spot in Minnesota's starting rotation, but he is unlikely to be relevant for most fantasy owners in 2018.

Anibal Sanchez takes loss in quality start Tuesday

Anibal Sanchez (3-6) allowed two runs on seven hits over six innings but took the 2-1 loss to the Royals on Tuesday. Sanchez struck out six and walked one in the 98-pitch effort.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez is on a mini-roll to finish the season with three straight quality starts while posting a 2.00 ERA and 12.5 K/9 rate. He is scheduled to face the Twins in the final game of the season on Sunday. He could be a streaming option, especially if the Twins clinch a playoff spot before then.
