The Tigers have now won their last two games by a combined score of 4-0.

Insight: He had to come out of the game. Sanchez (6-5, 2.76 ERA) was expected to return to the Tigers' rotation this weekend but obviously this injury will set him back a bit. He's a long shot to return before the All-Star break.

Description: Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez (shoulder strain) will throw a minor league rehab start next week, meaning Jose Alvarez will start Monday against the Blue Jays.

Description: Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez has been moved to the disabled list.
Insight: He's been diagnosed with a strained shoulder. Sanchez (6-5, 2.76 ERA) missed a start earlier in the month and his return on Saturday lasted only 72 pitches so fantasy owners probably saw this one coming. Hopefully you already snagged a replacement off the waiver wire. If not, you might want to look at lefthander Jose Alvarez (1-0, 1.50). The Tigers have called him up to replace Sanchez in the starting rotation.
