Sanchez (foot, quad) has resumed his rehab with Triple-A El Paso, going 1-for-11 in three starts behind the dish, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran backstop was sidelined for almost an additional month after suffering a lower-body setback during his first rehab stint in the minors. Now that he has a few games under his belt, the Padres may opt to call the 27-year-old up for depth after Austin Hedges suffered a thigh injury Monday. If the latter is forced to go on the disabled list and a corresponding roster move is made, Sanchez would see a quick boost in value as a short-term starter for those in deep and two-catcher formats.

Sanchez (foot, quad) had a setback in his rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A El Paso, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eric O'Brien of CBS 4 adds that El Paso manager Rod Barajas said that Sanchez left his most recent game due to quad tightness. It's unclear how severe this new ailment is or how long it will be until Sanchez returns to action, but more should be revealed in the coming days.

Sanchez (foot) is expected to join Triple-A El Paso on Thursday for a rehab assignment, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is seemingly the last step in Sanchez's recovery before he's able to rejoin the Padres. The rehab assignment will likely last through the weekend, making Tuesday's series against the Mets a possible return date for the backstop.

Sanchez caught a bullpen session for teammate Jhoulys Chacin on Monday as he recovers from a bone bruise in his foot, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez is progressing well but will likely have to go on a rehab assignment before he is able to return to the majors. Expect him to return at some point during the Padres' current homestand, which runs until May 21.

Sanchez (foot) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez was lifted early from Friday's game against the Dodgers with a right foot contusion after fouling a ball off his foot. Though X-rays came back negative, the backstop will still require a trip to the disabled list in order to allow his foot ample time to heal. Luis Torrens will act as the team's primary reserve catcher in Sanchez's absence.

Sanchez (foot) was removed from Friday's loss to the Dodgers after taking a foul tip off of his foot. The injury is being reported as a foot contusion, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

X-rays came back negative on the veteran catcher, but he was seen on crutches after the game and will be re-evaluated Saturday. Sanchez has been backing up Austin Hedges behind the dish, and with a third catcher on the roster, he could avoid a trip to the disabled list if the injury is considered minor.

Sanchez hit a game-tying pinch-hit two-run home run in the ninth inning in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez tied the score at two with his clutch dinger off Giants closer Mark Melancon in the ninth. The home run was just his second hit of the season, however, and he'll remain the primary backup to catcher Austin Hedges. The switch-hitter doesn't have much fantasy value at all while his playing time is inconsistent.

Sanchez was reinstated from the 7-day disabled list on Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez had been dealing with concussion symptoms after taking a foul ball to the head in last week's game against the Dodgers. It appears all systems are go and he's ready to assume reserve catching duties behind everyday starter Austin Hedges, though fellow backstop Luis Torrens will remain on the roster for now. The switch-hitting Sanchez is still looking for his first hit on the young season, but is likely to continue to see limited playing time upon his return to action.

Sanchez (concussion) is on track to return from the 7-day disabled list over the weekend, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez was able to catch a bullpen session Wednesday without incident, so unless his concussion-like symptoms resurface in the coming days, it appears he'll be activated at some point during the Padres' four-game series with the Braves, which begins Friday. He'll serve as the primary backup to Austin Hedges upon returning to action.

Sanchez (concussion) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Padres' backup catcher left Thursday's contest prematurely after being hit with a foul ball, and it seems like his concussion symptoms are bad enough to warrant a trip to the DL. To fill his spot on the roster, Jabari Blash was summoned to the big leagues.
