Tigers' Anibal Sanchez as bullpen option 'not unreasonable'

The Tigers and Sanchez are quietly giddy about his accelerating bounceback from a strained pectoralis. The issue is whether Sanchez, a right-handed fixture in the starting rotation, can make it back as a starter, or perhaps a reliever, before the regular season ends Sept. 28 or once the playoffs begin, should Detroit qualify.

Anibal Sanchez takes another step forward, is willing to pitch out of bullpen for Detroit Tigers

Sanchez has been on the disabled list since Aug. 9 due to a right pectoral injury. He said everything went well Tuesday in his bullpen session. MINNEAPOLIS -- Anibal Sanchez would prefer to be a starter. He is preparing as if he will be a starter. But he's more than happy to pitch out of the bullpen if that's where the Detroit Tigers need him. Sanchez threw off a mound for the second consecutive day Tuesday and could be ready to return to pitch for the Tigers at some point next week. Sanchez might throw one more bullpen before moving on to face hitters in a...

Anibal Sanchez willing to take on relief duty

Anibal Sanchez participated in a bullpen session today, all signs pointing toward his return before the end of the season. But will it be as a starter or reliever? Anibal Sanchez may not start again for the Detroit Tigers this season due to a strained pectoralis suffered in early August. But Sanchez's rehab is progressing to where pitching out of the bullpen has become a definite possibly. Before tonight's game in Minnesota Sanchez threw off a mound, taking part in his second short bullpen session in two days. He was reportedly feeling good and pain free after throwing. The next step in...

Positive workout for Anibal Sanchez prompts Tigers to consider their options

No one seemed sure, even a week ago, that Anibal Sanchez would pitch for the Tigers. Not this year. But that was before a successful long-toss session last week gave way Monday to a 25-pitch test from the pitching mound at Target Field, where the Tigers and Twins played Monday.

Anibal Sanchez throws off mound, could pitch out of bullpen for Detroit Tigers in playoffs

It seems unlikely that the Tigers will be able to get Sanchezs pitch count up enough to allow him to start in the postseason. If we werent able to do that, Brad Ausmus said, the likely option would be the bullpen. MINNEAPOLIS -- The immediate future remains a bit cloudy for Detroit Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez. But Brad Ausmus is much more interested in being able to use Sanchez in some manner rather than knowing exactly how he might use him. On Monday afternoon, Ausmus discussed the possibility that Sanchez could be an effective asset out of the bullpen...

Anibal Sanchez could be the Tigers' secret weapon -- out of the bullpen

Sanchez almost certainly won't be in the Tigers' playoff rotation, should they make it to their fourth consecutive postseason. That doesn't mean he can't contribute. In fact, they could really use his help.

Anibal Sanchez rehab progressing, will throw off mound on Monday

Anibal Sanchez's rehab has progressed to the point where a return before the end of the season is no longer out of the question. Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez has been sidelined since suffering a strained pectoralis against the Toronto Blue Jays August 8. On August 24, Sanchez suffered a major setback in his rehab, a bullpen session ending early due to the tearing of scar tissue, causing severe pain. At the time, Sanchez could not lift his arm and compared the pain to having 'a needle inside.' Worse, Sanchez stated he believed his season was over. A visit to Dr. James...
