Analysis: Atlanta signed the 34-year-old Sanchez to a minor league contract on March 16.

The Braves are not expected to need a No. 5 starter before April 10 due to off days.

Analysis: After leading the American League with a 2.57 ERA for Detroit in 2013, Sanchez struggled through the next three seasons for the Tigers while dealing with injuries and being demoted to stints in the bullpen. The 33-year-old Sanchez had a career-worst 6.41 ERA in 2017.
