Sanchez got out of a minor jam in the first inning with the help of a double play and a strikeout. He finished with 2 ER on 4 hits with 4 Ks and 3 walks in 5 innings.

Fantasy Impact: Sanchez is locked in as the #3 starter for the Tigers. He only pitched 126 innings last year after spending a couple of stints on the DL. His lowest seasonal innings output since 2009.

In four innings on Saturday against the Phillies, Anibal Sanchez allowed four runs, giving up four hits, one walk, and struck out three batters.

Fantasy Impact: Both homers came from Brian Bogusevic. The Tigers are counting on Sanchez to stay healthy and get back to form. This is just one bad day, but keep an eye on Sanchez as he comes with risks, despite showing flashes of brilliance at times.

In his spring debut, Anibal Sanchez pitched 2 scoreless innings against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The lineup Sanchez faced was mostly Orioles regulars, so it's a nice start. Out of 21 pitches, 14 went for strike and one runner reached base. Sanchez looks to be the number 3 starter for the Tigers, and should go later in drafts this year than he did in previous years. His biggest issue is durability, as he has never pitched a 200-inning season as he approaches his age 31 season. He could be a nice pickup in the later rounds as long as he stays healthy.
