Twins To Release Anibal Sanchez

Published

The Minnesota Twins will release right-handed pitcher Anibal Sanchez, according to The Star Tribune’s Phil Miller.

Sanchez’s departure will open up a roster spot for righty Lance Lynn, who the Twins signed on Saturday to a one-year, $12M contract, according to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.

Minnesota signed Sanchez, 34, to a split contract that would have been worth $2.5M had Sanchez made the Twins’ roster.

Sanchez has been on a decline in recent seasons, a far cry from the solid, consistent pitcher he had been earlier in his career.

However, Sanchez still can contribute and could be a potential addition to help round out a rotation, it just won’t be happening in Minnesota.
