Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Tigers will decline option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez's $16 million option for 2018 will not be picked up by the team this winter, Anthony Fenech of Free Press Sports reports.

Sanchez posted a career-worst 6.41 ERA to go along with a 1.59 WHIP over the course of 105.1 innings this season. Most of his time on the mound came as a starter, but he did spend time in the bullpen, appearing in 11 games as a reliever opposed to 17 in the Tigers' rotation. It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will return to the team in 2018 on a new deal, or look elsewhere this offseason.

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Fans six in loss to Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (3-7) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six batters through five innings to take the loss against Minnesota on Sunday.

Sanchez finished off the season in respectable form, allowing seven runs through 23 innings over his final four starts. His 8.9 K/9 highlights the 33-year-old veteran still owns the strikeout upside to be a serviceable fantasy asset, but his ratios (6.41 ERA and 1.59 WHIP) were crippling in 2017. It's difficult to view him as anything other than a risky option in the majority of fantasy settings heading into next season.

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Takes another unlucky loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (3-6) allowed two runs on seven hits with one walk and six strikeouts over six strong innings, but took the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 defeat at Kansas City.

Sanchez faced the minimum nine batters through three innings, as the only hitter to get on base against him was erased on the base paths. He failed to match that success the second time through the batting order, allowing a run on a pair of fourth-inning doubles and another on a fifth-inning sac fly following a wild pitch. With opposing starter Jason Vargas holding Detroit's offense to one run, that was all it took to stick Sanchez with a second consecutive tough-luck loss. The veteran righty is scheduled to start Sunday's season finale in Minnesota, and could have some value after posting a 25:5 K:BB and allowing just four earned runs in 18 innings over his past three starts.

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Stuck with tough-luck loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (3-5) took the loss Wednesday despite allowing just one run on three hits over six innings against the A's. He struck out eight and walked three.

This was an excellent follow-up to Sanchez's 11-strikeout performance his last time out, but the offense sputtered, keeping him out of the win column yet again. He's on a nice roll and appears in line to make two more starts before the end of the season, but prospective owners need not look any further than Sept. 10 for an example of the kind of downside that comes with deploying Sanchez (seven runs, 12 hits over 4.2 innings). The 33-year-old is a free agent this winter.

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez: Strikes out 11 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez struck out 11 and held the White Sox to just one run on six hits and a walk over six innings Friday night but was stuck with a no-decision.

This was easily Sanchez's best start of the season, as he both set a season high in strikeouts and finished at least six innings and allowed just one run for the first time in 14 tries. It was a nice glimpse of the old Sanchez, but despite the gem, he still owns a brutal 7.03 ERA for the season.
