The 28-year-old first baseman went 0-for-3 in Saturday afternoon’s loss to the Indians, dropping his already-hideous slash line to .197/.244/.295.
The Fish will hope that he can get his timing back against a lower level of competition at Triple-A.
Sanchez is a .263/.337/.427 career hitter in over 1,450 major-league plate appearances. He was named an All-Star in 2011 and finished the season with 19 home runs and 75 RBI.
Logan Morrison seems likely to move to first base while the Marlins wait for Sanchez to get himself right.
