Sanchez (7-13) gave up five runs on eight hits over 5.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Angels. He struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

He can't seem to sustain any momentum as for the second time in August he followed up two straight quality starts with a clunker. If the pattern holds Sanchez should be a solid play Saturday in Kansas City but his 6.24 ERA on the season as a starter suggests you will have safer options available.

Sanchez (7-12) tossed seven innings, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out two in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

In his first 19 starts of the year, Sanchez lasted seven innings just once. He's now done it in two consecutive starts while lowering his ERA to 5.83, its lowest mark since April 17. The 32-year-old is enjoying his best month of the season, picking up two wins in five outings while owning a 3.66 ERA and notching 26 strikeouts in 32 innings. Sanchez is slated to make his next start Sunday versus the Angels.

Sanchez one-hit the Royals over seven shutout innings Wednesday, striking out eight and walking two, but his bullpen blew the win.

EDGE Analysis

After Sanchez took exactly 100 pitches to roll through the Kansas City offense -- carrying a no-hitter into the seventh -- the Tigers' relievers didn't fare nearly so well, allowing a run in the eighth and three more in the ninth to end up on the losing end. Sanchez has been tough to predict lately -- once a highly reliable fantasy starter, the 32-year-old has become a boom-or-bust proposition. He's given up one or zero runs in three of his last four starts; in the other, he gave up eight runs. That still qualifies as an improvement over Sanchez's brutal April and May, though, and he has a strong opportunity to keep it going Tuesday against the Twins.

Sanchez will take the mound Friday against the Rangers on normal rest, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez was originally expected to get an extra day off with Matt Boyd toeing the rubber Friday, but he is now slotted to pitch the series opening in Texas. He had an excellent outing during his past start, only allowing one run on four hits over eight innings while striking out 10 against the Mets on Sunday.

Sanchez (6-11) came away with a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Mets despite allowing just one run on four hits over eight innings while striking out 10.

EDGE Analysis

His only mistake resulted in a Michael Conforto solo shot in the seventh inning, but the Tigers promptly scored in the bottom half of the inning to at least ensure that Sanchez wouldn't be rewarded for his efforts with a loss. It's the second time in four starts that he's struck out 10 batters and he's shaved nearly a full run off his seasonal ERA during that stretch. He'll have a tough time keeping that momentum going in his next start though, on the road against the Rangers on Saturday.

Sanchez (6-11) pitched six innings, allowing one runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two in the win Tuesday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

After lasting six-plus innings just four times in his first 14 starts of the year, Sanchez has now done it in three straight outings. The veteran's two strikeouts certainly left much to be desired, but his first win since June 30 is worth some appreciation. How long he'll continued to be called upon to make starts for the depleted Tigers rotation remains to be seen, but for now he's schedule to toe the rubber again on Sunday against the Mets.

Sanchez will start Tuesday's game against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Brad Ausmus will turn to Sanchez in the rotation again for Tuesday's matchup, which pushes Michael Fulmer back by one day. Sanchez has been disastrous as a starter this season, notching a 7.13 ERA and 1.707 WHIP in 16 starts.

Sanchez (5-11) allowed four runs on 10 hits while striking out five over six innings, but received no decision Sunday at the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez gave up a three-run homer in the second inning to Adam Eaton and he left with a 4-0 lead, but the offense came up with an eruption in the eighth and ninth innings to take him off the hook for a potential loss. He's now allowed 19 earned runs in his last 20.1 innings over four starts to raise his ERA to 6.56. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Astros.

Sanchez (5-11) turned in six quality innings, but still took the loss in Tuesday's game against the Twins. He allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while setting a season high with 10 strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez was the lesser part of an unlikely pitcher's duel with Twins' starter Tommy Milone. For the 12th time in his career, and the first since May of last year, the veteran racked up at least 10 strikeouts in an outing. Despite his impressive start, Sanchez has too many blemishes on his record this season to keep him from moving back to the bullpen once Daniel Norris (oblique) and Jordan Zimmerman (neck) return in the coming weeks.

Sanchez (5-10) got tagged for five runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings while striking out six in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

His return to the rotation hasn't gone well, and Sanchez has now given up 12 runs in 8.1 innings over his last two appearances, He'll likely head back to the bullpen after the All-Star break once the Tigers start getting some other pitchers off the DL.
