Homers hurt Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez again in defeat
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez has had an up and down season, and Sunday, home runs were once again a problem as the pitcher picked up a no-decision in the Tigers' 10-8 loss to the Astros.
Sanchez gave up two sixth-inning home runs to bring his total to 11 this season -- over the prior two campaigns, Sanchez had given up just 13 homers.
For the second straight start, Sanchez allowed seven earned runs, negating his 11 strikeouts.
"I thought all my pitches were working well today. Even the two homers were both down -- really down -- and they just put good swings on them," Sanchez said.
GM: Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez feels it's all about location
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski does not believe struggling starter Anibal Sanchez is dealing with any physical issues, Fox Sports is reporting.
He is certainly dealing with something.
"He says he feels great and his stuff has been good, but not located consistently well," Dombrowski said.
Three of his pitches were located over the fence Tuesday night by the Brewers. Sanchez has allowed nine home runs in 54 2/3 innings this season after surrendering just four in 126 innings a year ago. It's no wonder his record his 3-5 and his ERA has skyrocketed to 5.60.
Sanchez has been tremendously inconsistent. He has given up eight runs in 35 1/3 innings in five of his starts and 26 runs in 19 1/3 innings in his other four.
Dave Dombrowski told me today #Tigers do not believe there is any physical or injury issue with Anibal Sanchez now.
Dombrowski on Anibal Sanchez: "He says he feels great and his stuff has been good, but not located consistently well."
Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez surrenders three homers in loss
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez allowed seven runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings of work in Detroit's 8-1 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.
Sanchez blew up in the third inning when he allowed back-to-back-to-back home runs to Ryan Braun, Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez, accounting for five of the six runs allowed in the inning. He only totaled two strikeouts in the game.
"It's been clearly something that is uncharacteristic for [Sanchez]," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "The long ball wasn't an issue last year, but this year has been a little bit of a different story. Now, we've also seen some outstanding starts from Sanchie, but when he doesn't have his command down in the zone, his offspeed pitches especially, that's when they hit him."
Sanchez, now 3-5, moved his ERA to 5.60 in 54 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Astros.
Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez goes eight strong innings on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/14/15) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez was solid against the Twins on Thursday. The right-hander pitcehd eight innings, giving up just one earned run on five hits. He walked one and tied his season-high with nine strikeouts. He threw 71 of his 111 pitches for strikes, as he improved his record to 3-4 on the season.
The only run Sanchez surrendered came on an RBI single from Eduardo Escobar in the bottom of the fourth. All five hits he gave up went for singles.
This was a big rebound for Sanchez, who gave up six runs (five earned) in his last start. Sanchez will carry a 4.76 ERA into his next start on Monday against the Brewers.
Tigers' David Price bumped back two days due to injury
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Tigers starter David Price will start Saturday, in St. Louis, per MLB.com. Price was originally scheduled for Thursday, but a hamstring injury in his next start put that in doubt.
Anibal Sanchez will move up a day and pitch in Price's place on Thursday. Shane Greene will start on Friday.
|2014 summary: As a Tiger, Anibal Sanchez had left behind the history of injuries that marked the early portion of his Marlins career, but he was bit by the injury bug in 2014. A blister cost Sanchez a couple of starts early in the season, and then he missed nearly all of the final two months with a strained pectoral muscle. When Sanchez did pitch, he was effective, going 8-5 with a 3.43 ERA, but he was merely an average strikeout pitcher, registering 102 Ks in 126 innings.|
Playing time status: Sanchez returned late in the season in a relief role, but he will be back in the Tigers' rotation next season.
2015 outlook: Sanchez is maddeningly inconsistent when it comes to strikeouts, but even when he is more contact prone, he has been good at avoiding extra-base hits. While Sanchez has the upside of a top 20 starter, it's best to treat him like a top 40 starter on Draft Day, waiting until the middle rounds to take him.
