ANIBAL SANCHEZ RUMORS

Detroit Tigers: Anibal Sanchez called up, will start against Seattle

In a surprising move, the Detroit Tigers have decided to call up Anibal Sanchez, who will start Monday in Seattle. The move comes as a surprise because of Sanchez’s struggles this season. In his time in the majors, Sanchez held a 9.00 earned run average, 2.05 WHIP, while striking out 22 in 21 innings. Sanchez’s minor league stats aren’t impressive either. He is 0-2 with a 4.60 earned...

Detroit Tigers: How long is Anibal Sanchez’s leash?

It seemed the only reliever who hadn’t struggled was Joe Jimenez, who pitched 1 perfect inning before being...

Tigers lose 3-1 to Mets, but Sanchez impressive

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have little choice but to keep sending Anibal Sanchez back out to the mound. So even though the Tigers lost their series finale against the New York Mets, they had to be pretty encouraged by what they saw from the right-hander.
