Sanchez built on his strong 2019 season in Double-A with an excellent seven-start stretch in the majors, during which he put up a 3.46 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Sanchez throws really hard (his fastball velocity is in the 98th percentile), but he doesn't put up a ton of strikeouts, either in the minors or during his stint in the majors last year. But his outstanding changeup (.148 BAA, .148 slugging against, .158 wOBA against) keeps hitters off balance, and allows him to avoid giving up too much hard contact. Combine that with his well above-average control and his almost comical ability to avoid giving up home runs, and you have a quality pitcher who can slide into the middle of your staff.

Sixto Sanchez threw a bullpen session on Sunday

Marlins RHP Sixto Sanchez threw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

A live batting practice session will be up next. Sanchez got off to a delayed start due to a false positive COVID-19 test. There's still time for him to get stretched out before the season, however. Manager Don Mattingly thinks he needs to build up to 75 pitches before being ready for the season.
