Cristopher Alexis Sánchez (born December 12, 1996) is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Sánchez was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for Curtis Mead on November 20, 2019. Sánchez was added to the Phillies’ 40–man roster after being acquired.
He did not play in a game in 2020 due to the cancellation of the Minor League Baseball season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. On April 19, 2021, Sánchez was promoted to the major leagues for the first time.
However, he was optioned down to the minors the next day without making an MLB appearance. On May 3, Sánchez was recalled to the active roster, but was again optioned down the next day without playing.
After long relievers Chase Anderson and David Hale were placed on the COVID list, leaving the Phillies’ bullpen challenged for depth, Sánchez was recalled to the major leagues on June 6, 2021.
He made his major league debut the same day, allowing one hit and striking out two batters in the final 1+1⁄3 innings of a 12–6 win against the Washington Nationals.
Cristopher Sánchez is currently not married, there is no information about his relationship status, either past or present romantic affairs.
