      Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) won't return this season

      Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) received a platelet-rich plasma injection Wednesday and will be shut down for the remainder of the season. While Sanchez's visit with Dr. James Andrews revealed no "major structural damage" according to the team's press release, the veteran right-hander will not pitch again this season. Sanchez finished the season with a 4.99 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 157 innings before his season was cut short by rotator cuff inflammation. The fact that there was no structural damage in his shoulder is a good sign that he could be ready for spring training.

      Ausmus indicates Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez likely done for year

      Brad Ausmus has indicated that the season is likely over for Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. "At this point, I don't know if we will get any more innings out of him," he told the Detroit News. Sanchez experienced a setback Monday during a bullpen session in his recovery from a rotator cuff strain that landed him on the disabled list on Aug. 19. He is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews as early at Tuesday. If his season is indeed over, he will end it at 10-10 with a disappointing 4.99 ERA that is more than 1.5 points higher than what he compiled last year. It's his worst ERA since 2008.

      Tigers' Sanchez still has shoulder soreness; Norris to start Wed.

      Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez is not ready to come off the disabled list just yet. Sanchez was hopeful to start Wednesday against the Twins, but he is still dealing with right shoulder soreness stemming from a rotator cuff injury that has kept him on the shelf since Aug. 20. Instead, rookie left-hander Daniel Norris will be activated from the DL to make Wednesday's start. Norris, who is nursing an oblique strain, was placed on the DL at the same time as Sanchez. Norris was acquired by the Tigers at the July 31 trade deadline in the deal that sent David Price to the Blue Jays. He has made four starts for Detroit, going 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA.
