Diamondbacks released RHP Alex Sanabia.

It comes a couple weeks after he had been outrighted off the 40-man roster. Sanabia posted an 8.10 ERA over 23 1/3 innings at Triple-A Reno before being cut loose. Still just 25, the righty will get an opportunity elsewhere.
May 5 - 6:20 PM

Diamondbacks sent RHP Alex Sanabia outright to Triple-A Reno.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Sanabia, 25, has posted a 9.49 ERA in his first three starts at Reno.
Apr 18 - 8:35 AM

Diamondbacks claimed RHP Alex Sanabia off waivers from the Marlins.

The 25-year-old right-hander joins the Diamondbacks 40-man roster. He made 10 starts for the Marlins in 2013, posting a 3-7 record, 4.88 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 31/25 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings. He's unlikely to have much fantasy value even if he does make the Opening Day roster in Arizona.

Marlins transferred RHP Alex Sanabia from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move opens up a spot on the Marlins' 40-man roster. It won't have an impact on Sanabia's timetable, as he's already been sidelined for nearly two months with a groin injury.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 03:29:00 PM

Marlins placed RHP Alex Sanabia on the 15-day disabled list with weakness in his right groin.

Sanabia felt discomfort in his groin during Sunday's loss to the White Sox and had to be lifted after four innings. The exact severity of the groin issue is unclear at the moment. Nathan Eovaldi will take Sanabia's spot in the Marlins' starting rotation later this week.

Alex Sanabia is expected to be placed on the disabled list with a right groin strain.

Sanabia was injured in Sunday's loss to the White Sox. He allowed four runs on six hits over four innings before exiting. The Marlins have yet to announce who will take his spot in the starting rotation.

Alex Sanabia scattered seven hits while holding the Phillies to one run in 6 1/3 innings in a victory on Monday.

Sanabia snapped a five-start losing streak, winning for the first time since April 16. With his 1.69 WHIP and 28/24 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings, he wouldn't be much of a fantasy option even if he pitched for a good team.

Alex Sanabia allowed four runs over six innings as the Marlins lost to the Reds on Wednesday.

Four runs was actually a good showing for Sanabia, as he gave up nine hits and three walks on the night. The right-hander now has a 5.00 ERA and probably shouldn't be starting for a major league team, let alone a fantasy one. His next start will come Monday against the Phillies.
Wed, May 15, 2013 11:20:00 PM

Alex Sanabia left Tuesday's start against the Padres after 4 1/3 innings due to right groin tightness.

Sanabia allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks before exiting. He thinks that the issue is minor and that he should be able to make his next scheduled start.
Wed, May 8, 2013 08:40:00 AM

Alex Sanabia yielded three earned runs in 6 2/3 innings Saturday as the Marlins fell to the Cubs.

Sanabia allowed a leadoff triple in the top of the first inning to David DeJesus and then threw a wild pitch that allowed DeJesus to score. The 24-year-old right-hander wound up surrendering six hits and two walks while striking out four. He'll carry a rough 4.85 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into his next start against the Phillies.
Sat, Apr 27, 2013 10:05:00 PM

Alex Sanabia allowed five runs on six hits and five walks over six frames in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

Sanabia was pitching relatively well before the wheels came off in the seventh inning, when he left with the bases loaded and watched Jon Rauch allow every inherited runner to score. The righty has been good in two starts and bad in two others, and inconsistency should continue. He faces the Cubs next.

Alex Sanabia allowed just two runs in six innings Tuesday in the Marlins' 8-2 win over the Nationals.

Sanabia gave up six hits and issued three walks, but he pitched well in situations that called for damage control and is now 2-1 on the year with a 4.24 ERA. The 24-year-old right-hander will take on the Reds next.
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 10:06:00 PM

Alex Sanabia allowed six runs in five innings as the Marlins lost to the Braves on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old had a good turn the first time out, and through four innings Wednesday it looked like he might turn in another solid performance. But things fell apart in the fifth as Sanabia served up jacks to Evan Gattis and Juan Francisco en route to a six-run inning. Sanabia's next start will come Tuesday against the Nationals.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 10:15:00 PM

Alex Sanabia fired six shutout innings in a win over the Mets on Friday.

Sanabia was far from dominant, as he struck only out one batter and gave up six hits, three walks and hit a batter, but the Mets were unable to cash in on their opportunities. The 24-year-old right-hander should keep a rotation spot for now, but he's not relevant outside of NL-only formats.
