Anibal Sanchez was forced from his rehab start Monday night at High-A Lakeland after taking a line drive off his left calf in the top of the second inning.

But the right-hander is apparently feeling just fine.

According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Sanchez has been cleared to return to the Tigers’ starting rotation on Saturday evening to face the Indians. Sanchez will be on a fairly strict pitch count because he failed to make it even two frames in his only rehab outing.

The 29-year-old has been out since mid-June with a shoulder strain. He had a 2.76 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 101/23 K/BB ratio in 81 2/3 innings before the injury.

Detroit finished play Tuesday with a 44-38 record — a half-game back in the American League Central.
