Philadelphia Phillies Shut Down Pitcher With Injury

Another injury blow to the Philadelphia Phillies pitching corps.

Christopher Sanchez, the Phillies' 26-year-old left-handed pitcher, has been facing injury troubles this spring.

He has recently been shut down from throwing due to left triceps soreness, and there is currently no official timeline for his return.

This setback could hurt his chances of making the Opening Day roster, adding to the team's ongoing issues with pitching depth.

The Phillies have been dealing with injuries to several of their pitchers this spring, and Sanchez's triceps injury is the latest blow to their roster. He had also been dealing with back soreness earlier in the spring.

Over his two years in the majors, Sanchez holds a poor 5.47 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, with 48 strikeouts across 52.2 innings and 22 appearances.

The team will need to rely on their remaining pitching options as they navigate these injuries heading into the regular season.
