Tigers' Sanchez shut down for season, but on track for 2016

Anibal Sanchez has been shut down for the remainder of the 2015 season, but the Tigers right-hander expected to be at full strength for the start of 2016 spring training. Sanchez, 31, met with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday regarding his lingering right shoulder soreness and underwent a MRI. The noted orthopedic surgeon saw no major structural damage and prescribed rest for Sanchez...

Anibal Sanchez: Embodiment of the 2015 Tigers

It’s not uncommon for a narrative to develop around a great team — nor, specifically, for it to develop around the particular player on that great team who best represents the collective identity. For a club that exhibits a lot of power, the most powerful player is the focus. When a team is full of idiots, the most idiotic player garners a lot of attention. For a young team,...

Detroit Tigers insane day/night splits a sign of trouble?

You may have already noticed something weird about the Detroit Tigers this year. You may have even read about it a week or so ago when Chris Iott of MLive covered it. And to quote Nick Miller from Fox’s New Girl – “You want weird? I’ll give you weird!” If you think the Tigers play better in day games, well that’s because they do. If you think Miguel Cabrera is doing all...

Detroit Tigers: Still World Series favorites

Don’t let the headline make you roll your eyes. The Detroit Tigers are getting hot at the right moment, which is one of the reasons why they are once again showing why they’re the favorite to win the World Series. As of yesterday, the Tigers have officially claimed a playoff spot in the Wild Card game, which I don’t considered a playoff spot because the playoffs involves at...

Detroit Tigers: Could Sanchez be secret weapon?

The Detroit Tigers find themselves back in first place and with the opportunity to build their lead as they play their final series against the Kansas City Royals who are right on their tail.

Sanchez continues to struggle late in loss to White Sox

DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez doesn't understand why his performance takes a nose dive in the seventh inning. Tuesday, it wasn't even his fault. Against the White Sox, he took a 2-2 tie into the seventh inning, and gave up three runs while only getting one out. Joakim Soria followed with a meltdown in his home debut, and the Tigers ended up allowing seven runs in the inning en route...

Anibal Sanchez finally gets Tigers' run support to win

DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez's mound mastery hasn't gained much national notice because the Detroit Tigers had developed a nasty habit of not supporting him offensively. Prior to Saturday afternoon's 12-9 win over the Minnesota Twins, which featured Sanchez allowing three runs on four hits in 6 1/3 innings, Detroit had wasted Sanchez's brilliance. He allowed three runs over his previous...

Player Profile #74: Anibal Sanchez | SP | DET

Anibal Sanchez came into his first full season in the American League fresh off a 5-year, $80 million contract and boy did he deliver. Not only did he post career bests in wins, strikeouts, ERA, WHIP, and BAA, but he also came within two outs of his second career no-hitter. When it comes to Sanchez’s peripheral stats, the first thing that pops out at me is his increased ability...
