Anibal Sanchez takes loss despite quality start

Anibal Sanchez (3-5) allowed just one run on three hits over six innings but still suffered the loss in a 3-2 defeat to the A's. Sanchez registered eight strikeouts and issued three walks in the 115-pitch effort.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez lowered his ERA down to 6.68 on the season. He has pitched great over his last two starts allowing a single run in each start while striking out 19 batters in 12 innings yet he does not have a win to show for it. Sanchez is scheduled to make two more starts this season both on the road with his next start coming in Kansas City on Tuesday. He may be worth streaming in very deep leagues due to his recent success but proceed with caution.

Anibal Sanchez lit up for seven runs on Sunday

Anibal Sanchez (3-4) gave up seven runs on 12 hits over 4 2/3 innings on Sunday during the Tigers' 8-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Sanchez surrendered two home runs and walked one while striking out five batters in his fourth loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez has failed to make it through five innings in five of his last seven starts posting a 10.59 ERA during that stretch. He should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup against the White Sox on Friday but he could be a good target to stack against in DFS.

Anibal Sanchez exists game after just five pitches

Anibal Sanchez was struck on the leg by a hit from the Royals' leadoff hitter, Whit Merrifield, and was removed from the game with a right calf contusion. The runner came around to score but the Tigers went on to win the game 13-2 over the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

While X-rays came back negative on his leg, future starts over the remainder of the season are in question for the 33-year-old right-hander with the Tigers out of playoff contention. If Sanchez is somehow on your fantasy team, he can be dropped.

Anibal Sanchez threw just 47 pitches over 2 1/3 innings on Wednesday before leaving with left hamstring tightness. Before exiting, Sanchez gave up four runs on five hits including two home runs in the Tigers 12-6 loss to the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

Sanchez will be evaluated to determine if he can make his next scheduled start on Wednesday against the Yankees. Whether he pitches or not, he should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup.
