Tigers' Anibal Sanchez exits game vs. Twins in third inning with blister
Anibal Sanchez left Saturday's game against the Twins after 2 2/3 innings with a blister on his right middle finger.
Sanchez had been cruising before the blister formed, holding the Twins hitless and striking out two. With two outs in the third and a full count on Brian Dozier, the Tigers dugout noticed something, and the trainer came out to check on Sanchez. The recently promoted Jose Ortega came on in relief.Blisters can have a way of lingering on occasion, but this should not be something that causes Sanchez to miss a start. He has never had issues with blisters in the past, so the Tigers can be confident that he will be able to take the ball against the Astros on Wednesday.
