Detroit Tigers' Brad Ausmus on Anibal Sanchez: 'We still think there's a shot he can come back'

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Tuesday that the team has not ruled Sanchez out for the season and downplayed reports that surfaced earlier in the day. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers aren't counting out Anibal Sanchez just yet. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus confirmed Tuesday that the team has not ruled Sanchez out for the season and downplayed reports that surfaced earlier in the day, which questioned whether Sanchez's season could be in jeopardy. "By no means has he been written off," Ausmus said after the Tigers' 5-2 win Tuesday. "This is not something that,...

Should the Tigers use a four man rotation?

With Anibal Sanchez possibly out for the rest of the season, the Tigers need a new fifth starter. Or do they? When the news broke that Anibal Sanchez had suffered a setback in his rehab and may not pitch in the rest of 2014, most fans' next question was "Who is the fifth starter now?" However, some started asking a different question. Do the Tigers even need a fifth starter? While the idea seems outlandish in today's pitch count era, it makes sense. The Tigers have relied upon Robbie Ray, Buck Farmer, and Drew VerHagen for nine starts this season, and the three have combined for an 8.44 ERA...

Tigers' Sanchez has setback, putting rest of season in jeopardy

Anibal Sanchez suffers setback: "It's something like when you got a needle inside you"

Tigers' starter Anibal Sanchez may be out for the remainder of the season after a setback on Monday. It's not the news anyone wanted to hear. As it stands right now, Anibal Sanchez is no longer a potential start for one of the two games for Saturday's doubleheader in Chicago against the White Sox. Beyond that, there is concern that Sanchez could be out for the remainder of the season after suffering a setback on Monday. Any injury bodes poorly for the Tigers at this point in the season, but another blow to the Tigers' starting pitching staff twists the knife. Sanchez is currently eligible...

Detroit Tigers' Anibal Sanchez suffers setback, status now in question for remainder of season

Anibal Sanchezs status for the remainder of the season appears to be in question after the 30-year-old suffered a setback during his throwing session Monday. DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez is eligible to return from the disabled list today. But he won't. In fact, it could be a while before he rejoins the Detroit Tigers. Sanchez's status for the remainder of the season appears to be in question after the 30-year-old suffered a setback during his throwing session earlier this week. "It has obviously kind of set his schedule back," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told a group...

Anibal Sanchez likely out for rest of 2014 season

Sanchez suffered a setback while throwing on Monday. Well, this is awful. Anibal Sanchez suffered a setback while throwing a bullpen session on Monday and "may not be able to return" in 2014 according to MLive's James Schmehl. Sanchez emerged from a meeting with manager Brad Ausmus, GM Dave Dombrowski, and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand moments ago and waived off reporters. While no official word has yet been given, it looks like Sanchez will be out for the rest of the season. This is surprising news given the glowing reports Sanchez received over the weekend. The Tigers had not yet ruled...
