Anibal Sanchez concerned about return this season
Detroit Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez told reporters Tuesday that he is concerned that he will not be able to pitch again this season. Sanchez hasn't pitched since Aug. 8, when he was sidelined with a strained right pectoral muscle.
According to a report from James Schmehl of MLive.com, Sanchez suffered a setback Monday and underwent an ultrasound Tuesday.
The Tigers are competing with the Kansas City Royals for the AL Central division title, and the Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees for one of the two AL Wild Card spots. The Royals currently hold a 1.5 game lead in the division, and the Tigers trail the Mariners by half a game for the second Wild Card spot.
