Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he feels comfortable using starter-turned-reliever Anibal Sanchez at any point in a game.
Anibal Sanchez of the Detroit Tigers threw about 50 pitches in a simulated game Sunday and could be activated this week.
Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus gave some bad news Tuesday on starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez.
This is one trade that Tigers fans will not soon let the organization forget.
The organization outlined the flurry of moves on its Twitter account and said another move would be announced Tuesday.
The injuries constitute a blow to the AL Central-leading Tigers as they try to hold off Kansas City for the division lead.
Detroit’s trainer came to the mound and could be seen massaging the area around Sanchez’s armpit.
The 23-year-old Turner, whom the Tigers drafted 9th overall in 2009, had a 5.97 ERA as of Monday, when the move was announced.
The Tigers’ recent struggles have gone from frustrating to almost completely unwatchable.
Anibal Sanchez gave Detroit a much-needed quality start, and the Tigers snapped their four-game losing streak with a 7-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
