Anibal Sanchez picked up just his first win of the season in his return to the Tigers rotation on Sunday as he held the Red Sox to two runs (one earned) over five innings.
Sanchez made his first start since returning from a 15-day stint on the disabled list with a blister. He did not skip a beat as he held his opponent to two or fewer earned runs for the fifth time in six starts despite picking up just his first victory of the 2014 season. Last season's American League ERA champ lowered his ERA down to 2.89 and has yet to allow a home run over 28 innings.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
