Analysis: Detroit Tigers, Brad Ausmus make smart call by lifting Anibal Sanchez after rain delay

It was an impressive display of pitching from Anibal Sanchez and a strong indication that last years production wasnt a fluke. Bottom line: Sanchez, when healthy is the real deal. DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez hadn't faced a major league hitter in a game setting since March 12. So, naturally, he was a bit rusty. But when that rust finally wore off, Sanchez looked every bit like the pitcher who had been crowned last year's American League ERA champion. Making his season debut Friday, Sanchez needed 26 pitches to escape a rough first inning that saw the Baltimore...

Better know a Tiger: Anibal Sanchez

Sanchez not only led the league among qualified starters with a 2.57 ERA, but he was second only to Scherzer in pitcher WAR, also led the league with a 2.39 fielding independent pitching (FIP) percentage, was third with a 10.0 strikeout per nine...
