Hector Sanchez hits another home run

Padres catcher Hector Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a homer, three RBIs and two runs scored Sunday vs. the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

The Padres haven't missed Austin Hedges over the past two games, as Sanchez has gone yard twice and plated five runs. But even if Hedges needs to go on the disabled list, Sanchez, who owns a lifetime .639 OPS with 18 homers across 741 plate appearances, is unlikely to be a fantasy factor.

Hector Sanchez hits walk-off homer

Padres catcher Hector Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Saturday vs. the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez stroked a two-run, walk-off home-run off Steven Okert to give the Padres the win and increase his long ball total to four on the season. The veteran earned the start Saturday after Austin Hedges was scratched for precautionary reasons. As long as Hedges is healthy, Sanchez should remain on waivers in most fantasy leagues.

Hector Sanchez sends game to extra innings with first home run

Hector Sanchez went 1-for-1 at the plate with a two-run-homer in the top of the ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez faced a one-and-one count with one out and a runner on first base. Giants' closer Mark Melancon then watched his save get blown as Sanchez launched a beautiful two-run-homer to right field and almost out of AT&T Park. The score by Sanchez would send the game into extra innings until Wil Myers would send a three-run-homer out of the park in the top of the 12th. Sanchez is hitting with a .133 batting-average, .235 on-base-percentage, and a .333 slugging-percentage in a very limited 15 at-bats.

Hector Sanchez goes 2 for 3 in Giants' loss

Hector Sanchez went 2 for 3 with an RBI single, a double and a walk in the Giants' Saturday loss to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Hector Sanchez entered camp this Spring behind Andrew Susac as the favorite to win the backup catcher role. However, Sanchez has turned in a strong spring, batting .258 (8-31) with three doubles and four RBIs. It is likely he will start the season as Buster Posey's backup and will have limited fantasy relevance in deep mixed daily leagues and daily NL-only formats.

Giants tender contract to Hector Sanchez

The Giants tendered a contract to their backup catcher Hector Sanchez. He is expected to make $1,000,000 this season.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez was sidelined by two concussions last year, which led to the rise of Andrew Susac. Unless you have the fantasy itch to play in two-catcher NL-only leagues, you can safely ignore Sanchez. If Posey goes down, Susac will likely take his place.
