Anibal Sanchez said he doesn't think he'll need to be placed on 15-day disabled list. He'll get a much better idea Saturday after an MRI.
The fact that he's heading back to Detroit for this MRI probably takes him out for his next start and if the MRI reveals a serious strain in the pectoral region, he could be out for an extended period of time. The Tigers will take it very slowly and carefully with Sanchez as they cannot risk losing him for the playoffs. Fantasy owners are in a bad situation right now as he could miss significant time here.ANALYST: Howard Bender
