Aug. 12 9:09 PM PT10:09 PM MT11:09 PM CT12:09 AM ET0:09 ET4:09 GMT12:09 9:09 PM MST11:09 PM EST11:39 PM VEN8:09 UAE11:09 PM CT-Anibal Sanchez fell to 3-3, allowing five runs on eight hits in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Friday. Sanchez struck out six, ending the game with a 6.69 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This was an improvement over Sanchez's last time out, when he served up five homers while being tagged for eight runs in three innings in a loss at Baltimore. With a 7.84 ERA over his last six starts, the veteran righty shouldn't be garnering fantasy consideration.

Analysis: Homers weren't an issue for Sanchez in his first four turns back in the rotation - he gave up only one - but he allowed three on Sunday.
July 6 1:47 PM PT2:47 PM MT3:47 PM CT4:47 PM ET16:47 ET20:47 GMT4:47 1:47 PM MST3:47 PM EST4:17 PM VEN0:47 UAE (+1)3:47 PM CT-Anibal Sanchez improved to 1-0, allowing two runs on five hits in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Thursday. Sanchez struck out eight, ending the game with a 5.89 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sanchez earned his first victory since Aug. 23. He was pitching so poorly this season that he was sent down to Triple-A Toledo, but the 33-year-old right-hander has posted a 3.09 ERA in four starts since returning from the minors.
July 1 3:34 PM PT4:34 PM MT5:34 PM CT6:34 PM ET18:34 ET22:34 GMT6:34 3:34 PM MST5:34 PM EST6:04 PM VEN2:34 UAE (+1)5:34 PM CT-Anibal Sanchez allowed three runs on four hits and one walk in 6.1 innings as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Cleveland Indians 7-4 on Saturday. Sanchez struck out five, ending the game with a 6.34 ERA and 1.51 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sanchez held the Indians to one run over the first six innings but ran into trouble in the seventh and eventually lost out on an elusive first win of 2017. The 33-year-old is enjoying a brief career resurgence, though, as he's posted a 3.12 ERA and held opponents to a .186 average in three starts since being brought back from the minors.
June 25 11:46 AM PT12:46 PM MT1:46 PM CT2:46 PM ET14:46 ET18:46 GMT2:46 11:46 AM MST1:46 PM EST2:16 PM VEN22:46 UAE1:46 PM CT-Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs - one earned - on two hits in 6.0 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the San Diego Padres 7-3 on Saturday. Sanchez struck out four, ending the game with a 6.75 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sanchez has actually been pretty good in his two starts since rejoining Detroit's rotation, as he held the Mariners to two runs in a five-inning no-decision five days earlier. He's still not a recommended fantasy option, especially with the way the Tigers have struggled lately.
June 20 9:40 AM PT10:40 AM MT11:40 AM CT12:40 PM ET12:40 ET16:40 GMT0:40 9:40 AM MST11:40 AM EST12:10 PM VEN20:40 UAE11:40 AM CT-Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Seattle Mariners 6-2 on Monday. Sanchez struck out five, ending the game with a 7.96 ERA and 1.96 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Sanchez had made 11 appearances as a reliever for Detroit before being sent to Triple-A Toledo and making four starts in the minors. ''Sometimes you need to refresh a lot of things,'' said Sanchez, who was making his fifth start. ''That is what I did in my time in the minor leagues and figure out how I can be successful here.''
