Tigers' Anibal Sanchez available out of the bullpen Game 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez is expected to be available out of the bullpen in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Orioles, according to the Detroit News on Saturday.

Sanchez pitched two perfect innings in Game 2, relieving Justin Verlander on Friday. He has logged only three innings since Aug. 9, because of a pectoral injury.

"Probably about 10 days ago you asked me how Sanchez was going to be used," manager Brad Ausmus said. "And I told you I wouldn't be afraid to use him in a tight game and he could pitch one inning and probably two. So, I've said that for a week and a half."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez retired all six batters he faced in his team's 7-6 loss to the Orioles in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.

Sanchez did a fantastic job after coming on for starter Justin Verlander with one on and no outs in the sixth, throwing 21 of his 30 pitches for strikes and picking up two strikeouts. Unfortunately for the Tigers, manager Brad Ausmus turned a 6-3 lead over to setup man Joba Chamberlain rather than stick with Sanchez, and the Orioles came through with four runs in the eighth. The Tigers sit on the brink of elimination heading into Game 3 Sunday in Detroit.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) The Tigers activated pitcher Anibal Sanchez from the disabled list prior to the start of Tuesday's game against the White Sox. Sanchez will be available out of the bullpen.

(9/22/2014) The Tigers will activate right-hander Anibal Sanchez from the 15-day DL Tuesday, according to MLB.com. Sanchez, who has been out since Aug. 8 with a strained pectoral, threw a simulated game Sunday. 

Sanchez didn't have a chance to go on a minor-league rehab assignment because of the timing of his recovery, so he'll pitch out of the bullpen.


Anibal Sanchez could be activated this week


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/21/2014) MLive.com reports that Anibal Sanchez pitched a simulated game on Sunday, and he could return to the Tigers' pitching staff as soon as Wednesday. The date of Sanchez's activation from the disabled list depends on how well he feels on Monday.

It is not yet known what Sanchez's role will be when he returns, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he has discussed the possibility of both starting and relief roles with Sanchez. The last time Sanchez made a relief appearance was in his 2006 rookie season with the Marlins.

Sanchez has been out since Aug. 8 with a pectoral injury.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"We've just got to wait and see what happens," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He's got a bullpen tomorrow. If he comes out of that all right, we'll have to schedule a simulated game."

The simulated game, which could come as early as Sunday morning, could be the precursor to getting Sanchez on the mound in a game before the season is over. He could start the team's penultimate game of the season next weekend if the Tigers were to have the division title wrapped up, though he would likely pitch just a few innings.

Whether Sanchez will return as a starter or reliever has yet to be determined, though Sanchez is currently preparing to return to the rotation.
