Sanchez hit with comebacker in rehab outing

TORONTO -- While the Tigers trotted out Jose Alvarez for a third consecutive turn through their rotation, Anibal Sanchez returned to game action in a rehab appearance. Much like Alvarez's loss, Sanchez's appearance didn't go as planned.

The team was hoping Monday's appearance for Class A Lakeland would set up his return for the Tigers next weekend in Cleveland. However, he lasted just 1 2/3 innings before taking a comebacker off his left leg, according to his agent.

Sanchez stayed behind in Florida when the Tigers flew north from Tampa Bay Sunday night.

"If everything goes all right, I expect he'll pitch for us next," manager Jim Leyland said Monday morning.

Sanchez pitched in relief in a game that had been suspended in the second inning from the previous day.
