He took a no-hitter into seventh inning and ended up throwing seven scoreless innings with two walks and eight strikeouts in a no-decision.

Analysis: Sanchez is now 0-7 with an 8.16 ERA over his last nine outings as a starter and hasn't won since April 28. His once-secure spot in the Tigers' rotation remains in jeopardy, while his fantasy value is non-existent at the moment.

Analysis: Manager Brad Ausmus says the Tigers will use Sanchez in relief after he returned to the rotation for one start.

Saturday was his first start since May 31, but he was solid out of the bullpen in between.

Analysis: Manager Brad Ausmus said he could be ready to pitch in a spring game by Thursday. Sanchez went 10-10 with a 4.99 ERA last year and did not pitch after Aug. 18 because of rotator cuff issues.
