Sanchez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The move was expected after Sanchez was pulled after 2.1 innings during Wednesday's game against the Rangers. It's still not clear how much time the starter will miss due to the injury, and nothing has been reported about the severity. JaCoby Jones will take his place on the 25-man roster.
Sanchez was prematurely lifted from Wednesday's game due to left hamstring tightness. Sanchez allowed four runs on two homers and lasted just 2.1 innings before being pulled with the injury. While he was seen shaking his hands in between pitches before being lifted, it turns out that it was actually his hamstring that was bothering him. The severity of the injury isn't clear at this point, but more should be known once he is reevaluated Thursday.
Sanchez was removed from Wednesday's game against the Rangers with an apparent injury, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. Sanchez had allowed four runs on a pair of homers before being replaced by Chad Bell in the bottom of the third inning. Not much is known about his injury at this point, but he was seen shaking his hand before he was removed. More should be known once he is further evaluated following the conclusion Wednesday's game.
Sanchez (3-3) allowed five runs on eight hits while striking out six across six innings to take the loss Friday against the Twins. Sanchez was solid the first time through the lineup and entered the fourth inning with a 1-0 lead, but a pair of homers over the next two innings accounted for all five runs he allowed in a losing effort. With an ERA that hasn't been below 5.85 since April, he's a risky option who at best is matchup dependent. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rangers.
Sanchez (3-2) allowed eight runs on 10 hits and one walk across three innings in Sunday's loss to the Orioles. He struck out two. Sanchez was done in by the long ball in this one, with three home runs accounting for four runs in the first inning, and a pair plating another three in the fourth before his removal with no outs. The veteran delivered a quality start in his previous outing, but he has now allowed 22 runs over 25 innings in his last five appearances to raise his season ERA to 6.62. With the Tigers firmly out of the playoff race, Sanchez should keep his place in the rotation and will next toe the rubber Friday against the Twins.
