Anibal Sanchez Expected To Sign This Week

April 28: Sanchez is planning to sign this week and could settle on a team as early as tomorrow, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post (Twitter link).

April 23: The Yankees, Phillies, Marlins, Tigers, Diamondbacks and Blue Jays were among the teams at Sanchez’s showcase this morning, Heyman tweets.

April 21: Sanchez will throw yet another bullpen session for teams this Friday, tweets MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. He worked out for clubs in the offseason and reportedly turned down a couple offers, opting instead to see how health-and-safety protocols played out. He then worked out for teams early in the season but suffered the aforementioned finger laceration midway through his bullpen.

Sanchez and presumably Jon Lester are the last active players from the storied 2005 Portland Sea Dogs. He has had an interesting career, starting with Tommy John surgery and being part of a significant trade before even debuting in the big leagues.  He has thrown a no hitter and won a World Series.  It looked like his career was over in 2017 after consecutive terrible years for the Tigers, but he rebounded with the Braves and Nationals.  It looked like his career was over again this offseason after a horrible 2020, but maybe he has one more chapter to write.
