|Anibal Sanchez comes two outs shy of no-hitter|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/24/13) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez was two outs shy of his second career no-hitter Friday. He closed out the win for a complete-game shutout, allowing one hit and three walks in a 6-0 victory against the Twins.
Sanchez(5-4), struck out 12 in 130 pitches, his most of the year. He'll take a 2.38 ERA and 80:17 K:BB ratio into a start in Pittsburgh against the Pirates Wednesday.
|Anibal Sanchez can't complete three innings Saturday|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez couldn't make it out of the third inning Saturday, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two. It was the first time this season Sanchez lasted fewer than five innings or allowed more than three earned runs.
Sanchez struck out 42 in his previous four starts (all quality starts). He'll look to rebound against the Twins next week.
|Are Anibal Sanchez's Ks here to stay?|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/14/13) Anibal Sanchez's 17-strikeout effort on April 26 was easy to dismiss because it came against the Braves, who tend to strike out a lot. But since then, the Tigers right-hander has struck out at least eight in each of his three starts. In fact, he has struck out at least eight in six of his eight starts this season.
Part of me wants to point out that hot starts are nothing out of the ordinary for him. He averaged 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings in his first six starts last year, which isn't far off from his 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings so far. But because he just seems to be more dominant this year, I decided to look at the PitchFX data.
It's a small sample, obviously, but Sanchez is throwing slightly harder than in past seasons and is emphasizing his changeup over his slider for the first time. It's been the more effective pitch throughout his career, so it could have something to do with his early-season dominance.
I still think he'll regress some, but I now rank him in the Shelby Miller-Lance Lynn class of starting pitchers at No. 33.
|Anibal Sanchez Ks eight for fourth win|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez made his seventh consecutive quality start on Monday night against the Astros. He allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings of work in a 7-2 win.
The right-hander gave up all of his damage in the third and faced just one batter over the minimum over his final four frames. He threw 77 of his 113 pitches for strikes.
Sanchez also struck out eight and walked one while earning his fourth win.
His next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Rangers.
|Anibal Sanchez falls to .500|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(5/8/13) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez had another solid strikeout performance Wednesday night in Washington. Unfortunately, Sanchez dropped the interleague start.
Falling to .500 at 3-3 on the year, Sanchez couldn't get much run support behind him in the loss. He allowed three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits and no walks over six innings in what was mostly a well-pitched game. He struck out eight and surrendered a solo homer to Bryce Harper.
Sanchez threw 98 pitches and his ERA is pristine at 1.97. Sanchez has allowed five earned runs in his last two starts -- both losses -- spanning 12 innings. He'd been sensational prior to that and has already struck out 58 over 45 2/3 innings to rank within the top five in the American League in Ks.
Sanchez is scheduled to make his next starting appearance Monday against Houston. He should have another big strikeout game in that one.
|Anibal Sanchez cemented his status as a reliable pitcher for standard mixed leagues by turning in his fourth straight season with a sub-4.00 ERA and second straight season with a WHIP below 1.30. He may have irritated some nerves after getting traded from the Marlins to the Tigers in July, as only one of his first seven starts for Detroit featured more than five strikeouts. Eventually, Sanchez showed that he could get American League batters to whiff just as easily as their senior circuit counterparts, as he induced swings-and-misses on 12 percent of his pitches over his final five regular season starts. He certainly deserved better than the 9-13 mark he posted in 2012, and wherever he lands on the free agent market, he is bound to find a team that will provide better run support than the Marlins did for the first four months of the season. With more wins and strikeouts likely to come in 2013, Sanchez is a safe bet to draft as a top 40 starting pitcher. (Updated 12/4/12)|
