David Price struggles in loss
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher David Price turned in a rough start Wednesday against the Twins.

Price allowed five runs on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked three during the outing. Price fell into trouble immediately. After a leadoff triple, Price gave up a run-scoring single against the second batter he faced. He then walked another batter, who came around on a single. A double drove in the third run of the inning. Price was able to settle in over the next four innings, not giving up a run. He ran into trouble again in the sixth. After giving up two doubles, including one that plated a run, Price was pulled from the start. Another run would come around to score, and was charged to Price. 

With the loss, Price dropped to 14-12. He’ll take on the White Sox in his next start.

Anibal Sanchez feels good Wednesday, set for bullpen Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez felt good Wednesday after throwing a bullpen session the prior day, MLive.com reports. He's set to throw another session Thursday.

"We've just got to wait and see what happens," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He's got a bullpen tomorrow. If he comes out of that all right, we'll have to schedule a simulated game."

The simulated game, which could come as early as Sunday morning, could be the precursor to getting Sanchez on the mound in a game before the season is over. He could start the team's penultimate game of the season next weekend if the Tigers were to have the division title wrapped up, though he would likely pitch just a few innings.

Nick Castellanos back in lineup Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

The third baseman was a late scratch Tuesday due to soreness in his left foot, but the issue appears to have been minor. Castellanos has hit .266/.313/.405 with 10 home runs and 60 RBI in 496 at-bats.
