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.

Sanchez has been named the starter for Sunday's game in Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez has a 7.23 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 66 innings as a starter this year, so it speaks to the Tigers' lack of options that they went with him for the final start of the first half. The Blue Jays make for an obvious stack in DFS Sunday, but Sanchez would be best left alone in most full-season formats. It would not be surprising if Sanchez spent most of the second half pitching out of the bullpen.

Sanchez (5-9) was hammered by the Indians in Tuesday's loss. He pitched 4.1 innings, allowing seven runs on five hits and four walks while striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez did little to capitalize on his insertion back into the Tigers rotation. Starting in place of the injured Jordan Zimmerman (neck strain), the right-hander issued more free passes than he had since April 28. The 32-year-old veteran sits with a 6.52 ERA, uncertain role on the team and little fantasy appeal through the first half of 2016.

Sanchez has been named the starter for Tuesday's game at Cleveland, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Jordan Zimmermann landing on the disabled list due to a neck strain, Sanchez will enter the rotation yet again, though such outings haven't exactly gone swimmingly this season. In 12 nods to date, Sanchez has cobbled together a 3-7 record, 6.71 ERA, 1.654 WHIP and 51:31 K:BB in 61.2 innings. With the break imminent, Sanchez may only be afforded one more start while Zimmermann fits in a period of rest.

Sanchez has been moved back to the bullpen, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanchez got to make his case to return to the rotation Saturday but he did not fare well, allowing four runs on five hits (including two homers) in five innings against Cleveland to push his ERA back over 6.00. The long ball has done Sanchez in over the past two seasons, with the right-hander allowing 45 home runs since the start of 2015. He's due nearly $17 million again in 2017.

Sanchez is an option to make another start later this week in Tampa Bay, reports MLive.com.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Brad Ausmus was non-committal, but is clearly throwing pitchers against the proverbial wall of late just to see what sticks. Sanchez gave up four earned runs on five hits, two walks and three strikeouts Saturday in five innings in a 6-0 loss to Cleveland on Saturday. The juggling is being done to slow down the white-hot rookie Michael Fulmer, who has tossed 62.2 innings of his likely 160 max this season. Sanchez didn't embarrass himself Saturday, but he didn't impress, so don't leap back on board ... yet.

Sanchez (4-8) gave up five hits, four earned runs and two walks over five innings in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Indians. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first start since May 31, Sanchez once again struggled with keeping the ball in the park. He surrendered a game-opening blast to Carlos Santana, and saw Francisco Lindor take him deep just a batter later with a solo shot of his own. The veteran righty was otherwise fairly effective, throwing 52 of his 87 pitches for strikes. While his relief outings throughout June seemed to indicate the improvement the Tigers has hoped for when they reassigned him to the bullpen, Saturday's effort seemed to demonstrate more of the same troublesome signs that plagued Sanchez in many of his starts earlier this season.

Sanchez will come out of the bullpen and make his first start Saturday since May 31.

EDGE Analysis

He was sent to the pen to work on his mechanics and his confidence. Sanchez appeared in 9.2 innings and delivered a 1.86 ERA and 1.14 WHIP line, two numbers that were significantly better than his line as a starter. He faces Cleveland on Saturday.
