Sanchez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez -- designated for assignment on June 14 -- went unclaimed by another club during his waiver period and will now head to Triple-A El Paso. Earlier this season, the Padres picked up the 26-year-old off waivers from the White Sox where he slashed .143/.200/.393 across 28 at-bats with their minor league affiliate, Triple-A Charlotte.

Sanchez was designated for assignment Tuesday, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez has played in 14 games for the Padres this season, going 5-for-16 with one home run and four RBI while being the third catcher for the club. He was designated for assignment once already this season, by the White Sox on May 9 before being scooped up by San Diego. If Sanchez passes through waivers unclaimed, he figures to land at Triple-A El Paso. In a corresponding move, San Diego selected Ryan Schimpf from El Paso.

Sanchez went 1-for-2 with a home run against the Mariners on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez saw action midway into the game, and responded quite nicely at the plate with his first homer of the season in two at-bats. Sanchez is not going to see a lot of playing time behind Derek Norris and Christian Betancourt, but the 26-year-old has hit safely in three of the last four games.

Sanchez was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Monday, Scot Gregor of the Daily Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez came up near the end of April with both Kevan Smith and Alex Avila battling injuries. However, with Avila reinstated from the DL on Monday, the Sox will annex Sanchez to clear a spot on the roster. If Sanchez passes through waivers unclaimed, he figures to land back at Triple-A Charlotte.

Sanchez had his contract purchased by the White Sox on Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The White Sox needed a catcher after placing Kevan Smith (back) on the disabled list, allowing Sanchez to join the big league roster. He hasn't been hitting all that well with Triple-A Charlotte, posting a rough .143 batting average, although he does have two home runs in 30 plate appearances to his credit. Despite this, Sanchez will likely serve as the backup catcher behind Dioner Navarro until Smith or Alex Avila return from their respective injuries.

Sanchez (ankle) signed with the White Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the offseason acquisitions of fellow catchers Dioner Navarro and Alex Avila, it's unclear where Sanchez will fit into the mix. He split time between the majors and minors last season, and could be reduced to a similar role with his new club.

The Giants declined to tender Sanchez (ankle) a contract for 2016, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez was the odd man out of the catching mix with Andrew Susac (wrist) and Trevor Brown emerging as viable options behind Buster Posey. Ankle and hamstring injuries cut Sanchez's 2015 season short, but he was able to avoid another concussion scare after battling head injuries throughout the second half of 2014.
