Jonathan Sanchez To Make Rockies Debut On Monday Vs. Diamondbacks

On Friday morning, the Colorado Rockies traded veteran pitcher Jeremy Guthrie to the Kansas City Royals in exchange for 29-year-old lefty Johnathan Sanchez, and on Monday Sanchez will make his Rockies debut when Colorado takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to Trey Scott of MLB.com. Sanchez struggled mightily in the American League in 2012 -- posting a gaudy 7.76 ERA over 53.1 innings with the Royals -- but he has been a bit better in the National League over the course of his career.

In his six years as an NL pitcher, he managed to produce a more respectable 4.26 ERA over 708.0 innings, so perhaps his shift back via trade will reinvigorate his MLB career. The first chance to find out will come on Monday.
