Player Outlook
Jesus Sanchez appeared to be a rising star for the Marlins when he put up an .808 OPS with 14 home runs over 64 games as a rookie in 2021, but he failed to build on that in 2022 and was even demoted back to the minors in August of that year. Last season represented a rebound for him overall, especially the second half, but he was more of a doubles hitter than a home run hitter while ranking in the 71st percentile of all major leaguers in average exit velocity. Sanchez needs to hit for more power -- and do it with more consistency -- in order to take the next step forward. He also must improve his paltry .201/.235/.324 career slash line against lefties or is at risk of being stuck in a platoon. Where things stand leading into 2024, the 26-year-old outfielder should only be on the fringe of fantasy consideration in standard mixed leagues.

  • Marlins' Jesus Sanchez: Grabs fourth stolen base

    Sanchez went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Giants. Sanchez's four steals already mark a new career high -- he'd stolen three bags in each of his previous two seasons. While the 26-year-old outfielder may offer some value on the basepaths, Sanchez has struggled at the plate, going 6-for-35 (.171) with no extra-base hits and six RBI to start the season.

  • Marlins' Jesus Sanchez: Steals another bag Thursday

    Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals. The 26-year-old outfielder swiped second base off Lance Lynn and backup catcher Ivan Herrera in the fourth inning, part of a 3-for-3 showing by the Marlins on the basepaths. Sanchez is batting just .235 (4-for-17) through six games with zero extra-base hits or runs, but he has stolen two bags in two attempts -- an intriguing performance given that his career high in steals is only three, set last season.

  • Marlins' Jesus Sanchez: Swipes first bag of 2024

    Sanchez went 0-for-3 with an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 6-5 extra-innings loss to the Pirates on Opening Day. He hit into fielder's choices in his first two at-bats, but the first brought home Jazz Chisholm for the game's first run, and Sanchez swiped second base after the second. The 26-year-old outfielder had only four steals on six attempts in his career prior to Thursday and recorded an average sprint speed in the 54th percentile last season, so a sudden breakout in that category seems unlikely, but Sanchez will be looking to take another step forward as a hitter after producing a .253/.327/.450 slash line with 14 homers and 52 RBI over 402 plate appearances in 2023.

The 26-year-old right fielder slashed .253/.327/.450 with 14 home runs and three steals in 402 plate appearances and will look to set a career high in games played this season.
