Kirk Gibson on Parkinson's battle: 'I want people to see what's going to happen'

Tigers great talks about his choice to make fight public, just over a year since diagnosed. GRAND RAPIDS - Just over a year ago, Kirk Gibson was doing a live TV interview when he heard the producer say in his ear piece, "Gibby, smile. You look like you've seen a ghost." Turns it, he was right. "I was seeing a ghost," he said. "I couldn't smile. I was stricken." Now, a year since Gibson was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, the Detroit Tigers legend and current part-time TV analyst said he has grown comfortable with his decision to make his battle public -...

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez feeling more comfortable with a hybrid windup

Sanchez's windup adjustment is a cross between the extreme and a non-existent turn. DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez is going back to his old windup. Kind of. Until Thursday afternoon, Sanchez had been working with a significantly subdued version of his twist windup. After four starts, though, he wasn't comfortable, and it took too much of his concentration away from everything else he was working on. But going back entirely to his old windup wasn't going to work, either. So, he made a compromise with himself, and decided to split the difference (a decision he reached on his own). Tuesday was the...

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez back on track after reverting to familiar delivery

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez back on track after reverting to familiar delivery

Sanchez earned his third win of the season on Thursday in Detroits 7-3 win over the Athletics. DETROIT -- A part of Anibal Sanchez returned on Thursday. Both in results and form. The Detroit Tigers' right-handed pitcher reverted to a hybrid version of his old delivery, one that has Sanchez twist during his windup, in a 7-3 series-clinching win over the Oakland Athletics at Comerica Park. It was a mechanical change Sanchez made the call to employ after he was roughed up Saturday in a loss to Cleveland. "I just try to do my back (turn) to throw more innings," said...

Tigers 7, Athletics 3: Anthony Gose's home run propels Detroit to series win

Anibal Sanchez was solid and the bullpen was (mostly) stellar. DETROIT -- It wasn't perfect and there were a lot of walks, but Anibal Sanchez had a better day on the mound. Backed by a red-hot offense and Anthony Gose's moonshot, the Detroit Tigers won 7-3 over the Oakland Athletics, giving them a 3-1 series win to wrap up the homestand. Sanchez's old windup and delivery returned in a weird way. Sometimes his overt twist to second was there, sometimes it was nonexistent. When he ran into some traffic on back-to-back walks in the third, he had difficulty concentrating on both the baserunners...

Game 21 Preview: Oakland Athletics at Detroit Tigers

Anibal Sanchez looks to right the ship and deliver a series win against Chris Bassitt and the A's. All of the fears surrounding Anibal Sanchez -- and the Detroit Tigers' starting rotation, by extension -- came to light in his last start. Sanchez was nickeled and dimed in a three-run first inning against the Cleveland Indians, but was battered in a five-run third, allowing five hits before he was mercifully lifted from the game by manager Brad Ausmus. Sanchez's final line was ugly, but more concerning is the realization that a healthy Sanchez hasn't been much better than the presumably...

Pitching struggles join Tigers' hitting woes in ugly loss to Indians

Pitching struggles join Tigers' hitting woes in ugly loss to Indians

Anibal Sanchez lasts only 2 1/3 innings as Tigers drop third straight and fifth in the last six. DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers' hitting woes have been readily apparent of late. The Tigers' pitching was equally troubling Saturday afternoon in a 10-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians Saturday at Comerica Park. The Indians (8-7) pounded out 15 hits, six for extra bases, in their second straight victory over Detroit. Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez came in with a 2-1 record, but he lasted only 2 1/3 innings as he allowed nine hits and seven runs (six earned). In the...

Indians 10, Tigers 1: Anibal Sanchez's 2nd-worst career start dooms Detroit

Sanchez's replacement, Kyle Ryan, lasted longer than Sanchez and allowed far fewer runs. DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez's 2016 season has not gotten off to a good start, and Saturday was his worst outing yet. In fact, it was the second-worst of his career in a few different ways. It would've been a lot to ask for the Detroit Tigers offense to come back from a double-digit deficit, but even still, the Tigers only had two hits and lost 10-1 in blowout fashion to the Cleveland Indians. Perhaps things will shape up down the road, but right now Sanchez is a mess. His control was nowhere to be found...

Astros 5, Tigers 4: Anibal Sanchez gave up more home runs

The Astros flexed their muscles against Anibal Sanchez, and the Tigers weren't able to recover. Just as they did in the first two games of the series, the Astros jumped all over the Tigers in the first inning. Only this time, Houston was able to tack on runs later in the game to solidify a 5-4 victory. The Tigers made it interesting, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia continued his torrid April with his fourth home run of the season, but it wasn't enough to overcome the subpar starting pitching of Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez gave up a home run to Jose Altuve to lead off the game, and struggled to make...

Game 11 Preview: Detroit Tigers at Houston Astros

Anibal Sanchez, coming off a pair of solid starts, will face Houston's Mike Fiers. It's almost like clockwork at this point. Death, taxes, and Anibal Sanchez struggling the third time through the lineup are the three certainties in life. Sanchez proved this again in his last start, a solid effort in a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. After cruising through five shutout innings, Sanchez quickly retired the first two batters in the sixth, but made one mistake to Starling Marte with a runner on base, who unloaded on a hanging fastball to cut the Tigers' lead in half. That home run came on...
