Sanchez will make his first start after coming off the DL, the interesting news of the day is that it was Justin Miller that was sent down to clear room for Sanchez, and not Robbie Ray. Apparently Rick Porcello has been having lingering soreness on his left side, and as a preventative caution the Tigers have pushed back his next start, thus giving Ray another chance to showcase his talents.
The Tigers look to make it 11 straight road wins tonight, let's hope they get it!
