Sanchez, 25, has been bothered by the blister all year and has made only eight starts as a result. He last pitched on July 19. Overall, he went 1-3 with a 4.25 ERA and a 24/20 K/BB ratio in 36 innings. It’s a disappointing season considering how well he pitched last year, when he went 15-2 with a 3.00 ERA and a 161/63 K/BB ratio in 192 frames.
The hope is that Sanchez will have plenty of time to deal with the blister and come into spring training in 2018 ready to go.
