Tigers pitcher Eduardo Sanchez has a stress fracture in his elbow, according to mlive.com. Sanchez will be out for an extended period of time. Sanchez threw just four pitches before he had to be removed from Wednesday's game. Last season, he tossed just 6 1/3 innings in the majors.
Brad Ausmus has announced that Tigers right-hander Eduardo Sanchez has injured his elbow and will be examined on Thursday, per MLB.com. The early December pickup is seeking a spot in the bullpen, but any missed time could end those hopes. The 24-year-old has struggled with control in short stints with the Cardinals and Cubs. He has given up just 30 hits in 51 1/3 innings, but has also walked 34.
Baseball America reports that the Tigers signed first baseman Mike Hessman and relievers Eduardo Sanchez and Patrick McCoy to minor league deals. Hessman was in the Reds' system for 2013, and he batted .240 with 25 home runs for Triple-A Louisville. Sanchez spent most of the season with the Triple-A affiliates of the Cardinals and Cubs, but he did make four appearances for the Cubs. McCoy, pitching in the Nationals' organization, split his time between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse, going 2-1 with a 5.06 ERA.
The Cubs made a few roster moves Sunday as rosters expanded. The Cubs activated outfielder Ryan Sweeney (rib) and infielder Luis Valbuena (oblique) from the disabled list, while recalling pitcher Alberto Cabrera from Triple-A Iowa. In order to make room for Sweeney on the 40-man roster, reliever Eduardo Sanchez was designated for assignment. Sweeney was on the 60-day disabled list.
The Cubs have optioned reliever Eduardo Sanchez to Triple-A Iowa, the club announced Friday. The 24-year-old allowed four runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in relief for the Cubs.
