CBS DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers announced on Twitter Tuesday that starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez will be pitching Saturday, his first scheduled start after coming off the disabled list for shoulder stiffness.

After reports Tuesday morning that Sanchez left his rehab start in Lakeland, Fla., after being hit in the leg by a line drive, Tigers manager Jim Leyland allayed concerns that Sanchez would miss more than the two starts he already had.

Placed on the disabled list because of shoulder stiffness, Sanchez had compiled a 2.76 ERA through his first 13 starts. His replacement, Jose Alvarez, lasted just three innings in his outing Monday.
