  • Anibal Sanchez Not Rushing To Sign

    Free-agent starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez turned down multiple MLB offers after he impressed during his showcase, and he plans to wait and see how the league's COVID-19 protocols go during spring training and hope that a contender calls while he's waiting. If things are under control with the virus, Sanchez will pitch in 2021. The veteran right-hander became a free agent when the Washington Nationals declined his $12 million option for the 2021 season. Apparently he looked good during his showcase after he posted a rough 6.62 ERA over 11 starts in D.C. last year. The soon-to-be 37-year-old was excellent for the Braves in 2018 (2.83 ERA in 24 starts) and had a 3.85 ERA in 30 starts for Washington in 2019, but he's at the end of his career and doesn't miss enough bats to be fantasy relevant in mixed leagues.

  • Anibal Sanchez, Julio Teheran Could Find Teams Soon

    Twenty four teams were present as free-agent right-handers Anibal Sanchez and Julio Teheran put on a showcase for interested teams on Tuesday. They performed well enough that they could both sign with a team soon. Sanchez, 36, finished with an ugly 6.26 ERA and a National League-leading 39 earned runs allowed in 2020, but he did help the Nationals win the World Series in 2019. Teheran, 29, had an even worse 10.05 ERA with 20 strikeouts and 16 walks in his only season with the Angels during the shortened 2020 campaign. There's not much upside with either veteran arm, but Sanchez or Teheran could help the back end of a starting rotation, mostly as innings eaters. Fantasy managers will be best off looking for higher-upside arms in fantasy drafts.
