  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Back to Lehigh Valley

    Sanchez was returned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

    Sanchez served as the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals. He pitched the final three innings of the second game to earn an unconventional save, though he also allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one. Across 40 innings in the majors this season, Sanchez has a 5.63 ERA with a 35:17 K:BB.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Serving as 29th man again

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to serve as the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against Washington.

    Sanchez was also available as the 29th man for Friday's scheduled doubleheader, but he didn't pitch in the matinee before the nightcap was postponed. He'll be available out of the bullpen once again during Saturday's twin bill.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Called up as 29th man

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to serve as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Sanchez has made his last three major-league appearances out of the bullpen, allowing 10 runs on 12 hits and seven walks while striking out nine in 7.1 innings over that stretch. The southpaw should be available as a multi-inning option out of the Phillies' bullpen during Friday's twin bill.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent down Sunday

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez pitched out of the bullpen over his last three appearances, and he gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two in three innings during Sunday's win over the Nationals. The southpaw will head back to the minors since Zach Eflin (kneecap) is expected to return to action Tuesday.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Moves to bullpen

    Sanchez has made his last two appearances out of the Phillies bullpen, covering 4.1 innings and striking out seven while allowing six earned runs on five hits and six walks.

    Sanchez struck out seven in a quality start Aug. 24 against the Reds, but he's since been replaced in the rotation by Bailey Falter, who was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley two days later. Though Sanchez could be the next man up if the Phillies require another starter at some point in September, he'll likely be limited to low-leverage or mop-up work out of the bullpen for the time being.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Allows three in slugfest

    Sanchez (2-1) earned the win Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings against the Reds. He struck out seven.

    Sanchez allowed solo home runs to outfielder Stuart Fairchild to open the scoring in the second and shortstop Kyle Farmer in the fourth. This was the lefty's eleventh outing in the major leagues this season but only his third start. The 25-year-old has surrendered three runs or fewer in all three starts and pitched five innings or more in two of them. In addition, he enjoys a 2.60 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 17.1 innings over his last six outings.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Recalled prior to start

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Wednesday's start against the Reds.

    Sanchez has been in the minors since mid-July but will make a spot start Wednesday to give the rest of the Phillies' rotation an extra day of rest. Over 10 appearances (two starts) in the majors this year, he's posted a 3.80 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 23.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Promotion on tap

    Sanchez will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Wednesday's game against the Reds, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    The Phillies will elect to give the starting rotation an extra day of rest with the home stretch of the regular season in sight, as Sanchez's spot start will push each member of the rotation back by a day. The southpaw's last outing dates back to July 10 against the Cardinals, when he surrendered two runs on two hits and one walk while fanning one over three innings.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Sanchez will return to Triple-A after he tossed eight innings over two outings in July following his promotion, surrendering two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three. The left-hander will remain a top candidate to get called up in the coming months.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Working behind opener

    Sanchez will pitch behind opener Nick Nelson during Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez made his second start of the season Tuesday against the Nationals and struck out two in five scoreless innings. The southpaw will work as a bulk reliever Sunday but will attempt to maintain his momentum from Tuesday's start.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Takes advantage of soft matchup

    Sanchez (1-1) picked up the win Tuesday in an 11-0 rout of the Nationals, giving up two hits and two walks over five scoreless innings. He struck out two.

    The 25-year-old lefty wasn't dominant and got the hook after only 60 pitches (35 strikes) in his first big-league start since May 8, but Sanchez lasted long enough to get credit for a win as he took advantage of the massive run support the Phillies offense supplied. He will likely only stick in the rotation until Ranger Suarez (back) or Zach Eflin (knee) are ready to return, but Sanchez's 3.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB through 20.2 innings in the majors this season are at least encouraging.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Gets another turn through rotation

    Sanchez is scheduled to pitch as either a starter or bulk reliever in Sunday's game in St. Louis, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    He'll be awarded a second straight turn through the rotation after he acquitted himself well Tuesday in a home matchup with the Nationals. Sanchez struck out only two of the 18 batters he faced, but he rolled to an easy victory while blanking the Nationals over five innings and allowing two hits and two walks in the Phillies' 11-0 win.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Promotion official

    The Phillies recalled Sanchez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Sanchez will be making his second start and ninth appearance of the season with the big club. Over his previous eight outings spanning 15.2 innings, Sanchez turned in a 4.60 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Starting Tuesday

    Sanchez will start Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The 25-year-old was sent down in mid-June but will rejoin the Phillies as a starter after Ranger Suarez (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list. Sanchez has posted a 2.25 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 20 innings over seven appearances (six starts) at Triple-A Lehigh Valley and should have a chance to make at least one additional turn through the rotation if he performs well Tuesday.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Sent to Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

    Sanchez has spent three separate stints on the big-league roster this season, posting an unimpressive 4.60 ERA in 15.2 innings. Jose Alvarado was recalled to take his spot in the bullpen.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Recalled from Triple-A

    Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Sanchez made five appearances (one start) for the Phillies earlier in the year, and he posted a 5.84 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 12.1 innings. Although he worked mainly as a starter in the minors, he'll likely serve as a multi-inning reliever to begin his current stint with the Phillies.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Back in Triple-A

    Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.

    Sanchez was called up to serve as the 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets. He started the nightcap but was only asked to throw 2.1 innings, giving up two runs. The outing raised his season ERA to 5.84. He'll remain one of the Phillies' top options whenever they need an extra starter.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Takes loss in spot start

    Sanchez (0-1) took the loss and allowed two runs on two hits and a walk, striking out two in 2.1 innings in a 6-1 loss Sunday against the Mets.

    Sanchez limited the damage to a two-out, two-run home run to Pete Alonso in the first inning. Zach Eflin was added to the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, resulting in Sanchez being recalled for the spot start. While the lefty was optioned to Lehigh Valley six days ago, he did not make an appearance at Triple-A. It's no surprise that he turned in a short start Sunday, as he had been used in a long-relief role with the Phillies over the first month and hadn't been stretched out.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Making spot start Sunday

    The Phillies recalled Sanchez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley and designated him as the 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Mets. He's scheduled to start Game 2 of the twin bill.

    The 25-year-old will be picking up his second big-league start and first of 2022 after the Phillies moved Zach Eflin -- who was initially scheduled to take the hill for the second game of the twin bill -- to the COVID-19-related injured list. While it's possible that Eflin will miss more than one turn through the rotation due to MLB's COVID-19-related protocols, Sanchez may be headed back to Lehigh Valley following the doubleheader regardless of how he performs. Before he was optioned to the minors May 1, Sanchez made four appearances out of the big-league bullpen and gave up six earned runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out 10 over 10 innings. He maxed out at 3.1 innings and 65 pitches across those four appearances, so he likely can't be counted on to work deep into his start Sunday.
