Free agent pitcher Anibal Sanchez threw for six MLB teams today
According to reports, free agent pitcher Anibal Sanchez was up and throwing for six different Major League Baseball teams today. The Philadelphia Phillies were in attendance.
Sanchez, who made his MLB debut in 2006, has been a free agent since leaving the Washington Nationals after the 2020 season. Sanchez posted a 4-5 win-loss record along with a 6.62 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 11 starts. The Phillies struggling with the 4th and 5th members of the rotation this year and Vincent Velasquez will get the start tonight in Colorado. Matt Moore, who is currently on the COVID injury list, has gotten off to a terrible start for the Phillies and is currently 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA. The Phillies 5th starter, Chase Anderson, has an 0-2 record with a 4.15 ERA. By possibly bringing in a player like Sanchez, the Phillies could add pitching depth and possibly a starting arm if things continue to go haywire with the back half of the rotation.
The Phillies are back on the field tonight to take on the Colorado Rockies at 8:40 PM
