Anibal Sanchez has yet to make his spring training debut because of a shoulder injury and manager Ozzie Guillen said today that it’ll probably be a while before the right-hander is cleared for game action.

“We’re not going to put a guy out there just because,” Guillen told Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald. “When he’s ready to pitch, he’ll pitch. I don’t think it’s a big deal, but it could be a big deal if we don’t handle it the right way.”

Sanchez had shoulder surgery as a prospect and also missed a big chunk of the 2009 season with a shoulder sprain, so this is more worrisome than the average early camp soreness. For now he’s aiming to throw a bullpen session tomorrow.

    Ozzie didn’t say that…. there wasnt a single swear word in that whole statement.

    …Anibal Sanchez is a FA at the end of the season. This is definitely not a good thing for him.

    The Feesh caved in to Slobbering Ozzie and imported Lamebraino instead of seriously going after Oswalt or Garza. They are going to regret that decision. I can feel it in my shoulder.
