James Schmehl of MLive.com reports that the Tigers have activated Anibal Sanchez from the 15-day disabled list. The team has not made a corresponding roster move, but are expected to prior to Sanchez’s start against the Red Sox tonight. Schmehl suggests it will likely be Robbie Ray. (Update: It’s not Ray.)
Sanchez had been sidelined since exiting his start on April 26 against the Twins with a blister on the middle finger of his right hand. In five starts, Sanchez has a 3.13 ERA with a 24/11 K/BB ratio in 23 innings.
