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.

Anibal Sanchez takes loss despite quality start

Anibal Sanchez (3-5) allowed just one run on three hits over six innings but still suffered the loss in a 3-2 defeat to the A's. Sanchez registered eight strikeouts and issued three walks in the 115-pitch effort.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez lowered his ERA down to 6.68 on the season. He has pitched great over his last two starts allowing a single run in each start while striking out 19 batters in 12 innings yet he does not have a win to show for it. Sanchez is scheduled to make two more starts this season both on the road with his next start coming in Kansas City on Tuesday. He may be worth streaming in very deep leagues due to his recent success but proceed with caution.

Anibal Sanchez lit up for seven runs on Sunday

Anibal Sanchez (3-4) gave up seven runs on 12 hits over 4 2/3 innings on Sunday during the Tigers' 8-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Sanchez surrendered two home runs and walked one while striking out five batters in his fourth loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez has failed to make it through five innings in five of his last seven starts posting a 10.59 ERA during that stretch. He should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup against the White Sox on Friday but he could be a good target to stack against in DFS.

Anibal Sanchez exists game after just five pitches

Anibal Sanchez was struck on the leg by a hit from the Royals' leadoff hitter, Whit Merrifield, and was removed from the game with a right calf contusion. The runner came around to score but the Tigers went on to win the game 13-2 over the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

While X-rays came back negative on his leg, future starts over the remainder of the season are in question for the 33-year-old right-hander with the Tigers out of playoff contention. If Sanchez is somehow on your fantasy team, he can be dropped.
