MLB.com reports that Duaner Sanchez may stay at Triple-A New Orleans for a few more days. His arm is being evaluated on a daily basis after pitching back to back days on Friday and Saturday. Willie Randolph had this to say on the topic:
“When you get a guy like him throwing the way he was throwing before he hurt himself, and you put him into your bullpen, it’s definitely going to be a domino effect as far as helping the whole bullpen,” Randolph said. “Anytime you can put a fresh arm out there, a quality arm, it sets everybody up better. It just injects a certain energy into your bullpen. I’m hoping that’s the case.”
Hopefully, we’ll see Sanchez back sooner than later. It’s tough watching Jorge Sosa, Aaron Heilman, and Scott Schoenweiss. We need some new faces coming out of the bullpen.
