85 Sixto Sanchez (MIA - SP) MiLB 229 57 107 88.7 13.8 136.0 -93.0
This season has been a disaster for fantasy players who drafted early and took Sanchez. First, the rookie right-hander was left off the Opening Day roster to continue building up his arm strength. Then he started experiencing soreness and an MRI revealed shoulder inflammation. Worse, fantasy manages can't put him in an IL slot since he was sent to the minors before the year, so we're forced to burn a bench spot and wait on his return. Hopefully this means there will be less of an innings limit (or none at all) in the second half.
