PHILS GET 20 YEAR-OLD SANCHEZ TO COMPLETE GARCIA TRADE!

By Sam Bush

The Phillies yesterday acquired 20-year-old right-handed pitcher Rodolfo Sanchez as the player to be named later in the Edgar Garcia trade with the Tampa Bay Rays from August 18

Sanchez last appeared in the Class A New York-Penn League in 2019 in the Rays’ system, posting a 3.41 ERA in 13 starts with good command numbers.

Garcia allowed four runs and two homers in 3⅓ innings with the Rays. He had a 5.77 ERA in 2019 as a rookie with the Phillies, arriving in the majors with a highly-touted slider. The 24-year-old has had command issues with 30 walks in 42⅓ innings.
