News
The Tigers have designated reliever Joba Chamberlain for assignment Friday.

It's been a rough run lately for Chamberlain, who was in his second season with the Tigers. He had a 1.06 ERA as of June 16, but he posted a 14.40 ERA in his last seven appearances, raising his season ERA to 4.09.

"I know Joba struggled here recently at the end, but without Joba, we don't win the division last year. Simple as that," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLive.com.

Chamberlain was a popular figure with the Yankees and a stellar reliever very early in his career. He was moved to the rotation full-time in 2009 with New York, but his time as a starter lasted only one season before he was back in the bullpen. 

Since returning to a relief role in 2010, he is 10-12 with a 4.06 ERA in 266 appearances.

Gorzelanny tossed two-thirds scoreless innings for Detroit on Thursday and hasn't allowed a run in his last five appearances. However, it wasn't enough to save his job after he posted a 6.38 ERA through 30 relief outings.

News
Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez flirted with history on Friday, but would come up short.

With the Tigers up comfortably 8-0, Sanchez took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. But he gave up a one-out single to Ezequiel Carrera, and then the wheels started to come off.

Sanchez, who had already walked the leadoff batter in the inning, proceeded to load the bases before Ryan Goins singled in the first run for the Blue Jays. That would be all for Sanchez, but the bullpen would allow five more runs to score in the eighth.

But the Tigers were able to hang on for the 8-6 win, giving Sanchez his seventh win of the season. Ultimately, Sanchez allowed four runs on three hits over 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out five, throwing 117 pitches on the evening.

"Sanchy did a great job," said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, per MLB.com. "I think he got a little weary at the end. Pitch count was up. When you get tired, you lose a little bit of your control, but he did, obviously, an outstanding job tonight."

This makes back-to-back outings in which Sanchez has allowed four earned runs, as his ERA sits at 4.65 on the year.

Tigers starter Justin Verlander walked five batters in six innings on Tuesday. Verlander took a no-decision in the 14-inning loss to Pittsburgh, walking the most batters in a start since July 31, 2013. 

Verlander allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits, while striking out a season-high three. The veteran right-hander hadn't pitched since June 19 due to back tightness.

"I'd be lying to you if I said it wasn't in the back of my mind a little bit, hoping that it wasn't going to spasm up on me again," Verlander said, per MLB.com. "It was present, but it wasn't impeding me in any way."
