Washington Nationals infielder Adrian Sanchez was called up on Wednesday as the Nationals placed Trea Turner on the 10-day injured list with a broken right index finger. Sanchez is a fantasy non-entity, while top prospect Carter Kieboom continues his development in Triple-A Fresno.
Washington Nationals infielder Adrian Sanchez will make his 2018 major league debut at third base on Tuesday and bat seventh. Sanchez was called up today, taking the place of Matt Reynolds, and was one of the last players cut out of spring training. He's not relevant for fantasy purposes but is worth monitoring since the Nationals are a prolific lineup.
Anthony Rendon will be given the day off by Dusty Baker on Thursday to recover from an unspecified illness. Infielder Adrian Sanchez will start in his place at third and bat eighth against Marlins starter Dan Straily. Rendon has delivered MVP-like numbers this season but has been hitting 1-for-12 in the last four games. It doesn't sound like anything serious, so expect him to only miss one game. Sanchez has 10 hits in his first 32 at-bats (.313) in the majors with Washington, but he's a poor DFS pick against Straily on Thursday.
