Detroit Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez, who left his last start after 2.1 innings with inflammation in his rotator cuff, was placed on the disabled list Thursday, according to MLB.com. Sanchez has struggled through most of this season, posting a 4.99 ERA and 1.28 WHIP, and might not return this season with Tigers out of the playoff race.

Sanchez allowed four runs on three hits, walking three and striking out five over 7.1 innings of an 8-6 win against Toronto on Friday night.

Sanchez (7-7, 4.65 ERA) was dominant for seven innings and carried a no-hitter into the eighth before fatigue got the best of him. He walked the leadoff hitter in the inning, then saw the no-hitter go by the wayside on a one-out single. He remained in the game allowing two more hits before giving way to the bullpen as the Blue Jays made a game of it with six runners crossing the plate. The final line doesn't truly reflect the quality of his performance where he tossed 117 pitches (74 for strikes) before departing.

Sanchez allowed four runs on six hits, walking two and striking out seven over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision against the White Sox on Friday night.

Sanchez (6-7, 4.63 ERA) had a horrible beginning to the season, but had won his last three starts prior to this outing. The problem he has endured through the early parts of this year came back to haunt him as he allowed three long balls. If he can keep the ball in the park going forward, with the explosive Tigers' offense he could come around and enjoy a solid second half.
