He started the season ranked the No. 16 prospect in the Marlins' system. Last season, he was ranked the No. 8 prospect in the Dodgers system, the organization who signed him in 2010.

All told this season, Sanchez posted an 0-9 record and a 7.04 ERA with 36 strikeouts in 14 starts between Class AA Jacksonville (Miami affiliate) and Class AA Montgomery (Tampa Bay affiliate).

The White Sox assigned him to Class A Winston-Salem.
