Anibal Sanchez 2018 Outlook

I'm guessing Atlanta doesn't know either depending on how/when they might clinch their division.  How many do they need to clinch?

 

If he doesn't start again until next week that could make him a 2-game starter that week so H2H owners may have a toss-up on desires and of course it doesn't really matter much in roto except that he avoids the Phillies if he doesn't start on Sunday.

 

MLB.com has the Braves going
Toussaint
Gausman
Teheran
Newcomb
Foltynewicz

so Anibal is losing the Sunday start, and gets Tuesday next week.
But if the Braves stay with 6-man, he won't pitch again, which is bad news for owners.
I would think though, with the off day on monday, Touki won't pitch next week, or it could be that struggling Newcomb gets skipped, or even bullpen bound, and Touki sticks.
Plus keep it in mind that the Braves probably will win the NL East so next week they are setting up the playoffs rotation (probably vs.  the Dodgers) as well.
All in all, there are too many variables to even guess what's going to happen next week.

I am in an old school 4x4 keeper auction league, and I am in the midst of a pennant race. I picked up Sanchez for an injured Ross Stripling. Stripling came back, and I had to choose one of the two pitchers. I chose Sanchez.

Looks like Sanchez will make his final start on Sunday, Sept. 30.

Is he a FA or still under contract?  I can't believe be can replicate this season next year but I don't dare drop him in my dynasty either.

He signed a one year, $1,000,000 contract at the beginning of this year.

Thanks.  Looks like the Braves got their money's worth from him for sure.
