Patrick Sandoval News
Los Angeles Angels southpaw Patrick Sandoval (oblique) hit the 15-day injured list on Tuesday, according to Angels PR. In a corresponding move, the club recalled lefty Kolten Ingram to join the bullpen. With less than a week to go in the regular season, the 26-year-old Sandoval won't pitch until 2024, as the Angels are set to miss the playoffs. He last pitched on Monday against the Texas Rangers and experienced right oblique tightness before leaving early. Across 144 2/3 innings this year, Sandoval pitched to a 4.11 ERA, 19.6% strikeout rate, 11.3% walk rate, and 1.51 WHIP with seven victories. The five-year veteran remains arbitration-eligible, so he'll likely head into next season as a member of the Angels rotation once again.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Patrick Sandoval (oblique) exited Monday's game against the Rangers with right oblique tightness, per the team's Communications Department's Twitter account. Sandoval pitched three innings, allowing no runs on two hits and five walks with two strikeouts. The 26-year-old was not able to build on his 2022 success this season, posting a 4.11 ERA, 7.96 K/9 rate, and 4.60 BB/9 rate in 28 starts. He was slated for a favorable matchup against the Athletics later in the week, but fantasy managers should keep an eye out for further health updates.
Los Angeles Angels left-hander Patrick Sandoval (4-7) allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Sandoval cruised through the first two frames before unraveling in the third inning. The 26-year-old was shelled for six runs in the third inning. He has now allowed 21 earned runs over 25 1/3 innings in June. Sandoval owns a 4.69 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and a 65: 32 K: BB across 80 2/3 innings in 2023. The southpaw will look to rebound in his next scheduled start Wednesday on the road against the Padres.
In 2021, Patrick Sandoval had a 3-6 W-L record, 3.62 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 94 Ks (87.0 IP) and then had an ADP of 198 for the 2022 season. Last year, Sandoval had a 6-9 W-L record, 2.91 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 151 Ks (148.2 IP) and now has an ADP of ~217. It's not often a pitcher can post a sub-3.00 ERA and still fall down draft boards, yet that is the case. And there is merit to that given Sandoval had a 3.91 xERA, 3.67 xFIP and 3.94 SIERA while his 9.4% BB% ranked in the 28th percentile. On the positive side, Sandoval's 47.7% GB% was higher than the league average (44.9%) despite dropping from 51.1% in 2021 and his 23.7% K% ranked in the 57th percentile. Sandoval also limits hard contact with a Barrel% ranking in the 76th percentile and a HardHit% ranking in the 79th percentile, both being similar to his 2021 numbers. Given Sandoval's xFIP and SIERA last year were both lower than in 2021, it seems a surprise that he is going later in drafts than he did last year, even after missing a month with a back injury. It's fair to expect regression on Sandoval's ERA but even then, he's a fine option to fill out your rotation in the later rounds.
