Phillies 2023 Report Cards: Grading the starting pitching

The surprising standout of the year for the Phillies pitching staff has to be Cristopher Sánchez. Despite missing some time at the beginning of the season, he made a remarkable comeback and proved to be outstanding.

Sánchez’s exceptional changeup, complemented by an above-average sinker and a well-utilized slider, caught the attention of many, including FanGraphs who rated his changeup as a top three pitch in total movement.

As the season progressed, Sánchez’s performances became more consistent and impressive, proving himself as a reliable starter who could go deep into games. Notably, his road games showcased his talent, as he achieved a 2.08 ERA in six starts.

With his stellar performance in 2023, Sánchez has undoubtedly earned his spot in the rotation and has the potential to further develop as a key contributor to the Phillies’ success.
