On the disabled list with a strained shoulder, Anibal Sanchez is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Monday at Single-A.

Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that Sanchez will likely throw around 60 pitches, which suggests he might be making more than one start in the minors before rejoining the Tigers’ rotation. Sanchez was cleared for the rehab assignment following a 30-pitch bullpen session this morning that apparently went well.

Before being shut down Sanchez was fantastic for the Tigers, throwing 82 innings with a 2.76 ERA and 101/23 K/BB ratio, but he struggled in his last outing on June 15 and manager Jim Leyland gave him a quick hook after realizing he clearly wasn’t right physically.

    Hello, Gleeman.

    Good news on Sanchez. We sure could’ve used him last night, but take your time and recover properly. We don’t want to lose you again.

    I’d rather he not start back up in Toronto anyway. I have a feeling our season is going to be ugly until we get back home just before the All-Star break.

    Mike Trout is wearing the Tigers pitchers out in this series.

      What does that have to do with Sanchez?

        Tiger themed thread and nobody seemed particularly interested in talking about Anibal.

        Well, that’s not a *Tiger* theme. Booo!!!

        Medium and small, please. Four dogs, so don’t be shy. Also, the little ones are picky. Can you swing by Three Dog Bakery for some carob dipped?
