Hector Sanchez now starting behind the plate for San Diego
San Diego Padres catcher Hector Sanchez is a late addition to Monday's lineup against the Colorado Rockies.
Austin Hedges (head) was originally in the lineup, set to return from a two-game absence, but he is a late scratch and Sanchez will take his place behind the dish while batting eighth at Coors Field against Rockies' righty German Marquez.
Sanchez has only managed a .288 wOBA this season (and .278 over his career), and even at Coors Field, batting this late in the order leaves him offering very little value while priced at $3,200 on FanDuel.
