News: Sanchez threw about 50 pitches in a simulated game Sunday and could be activated this week. Impact: The right-hander went on the disabled list Aug. 9 with a strained right chest muscle. The simulated game came before the before the Tigers played the Royals in Kansas City. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus says if Sanchez feels good the next few days ''my guess is he'd be activated Wednesday or Thursday.'' Sanchez is 8-5 with a 3.46 ERA in 21 starts, and Ausmus says he could be used in relief. (STATS, 2:35pm)

News: Sanchez (chest) is slated to throw a simulated game Sunday, Jason Beck of reports. Impact: The right-hander threw 40 pitches off a mound Thursday, his third mound session of the week, and will now look ahead to facing live hitters Sunday morning. According to the report, Sanchez is upbeat about a possible return next week, though the team has yet to clarify whether he'll work as a starter or as a reliever immediately upon his reinstatement from the DL.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez (chest) will throw his next bullpen session Thursday,'s Jason Beck reports. Impact: Once he completes that session, Sanchez will likely be on track to face hitters on Saturday. It's growing unlikely that he'll be available by the end of the regular season, but Sanchez looks like he could at least join the Tigers during a potential postseason run.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez (pectoral) threw another mound session Tuesday, Jason Beck of reports. Impact: The right-hander got right back onto elevated ground Tuesday, a day after throwing his first bullpen session since suffering a setback with his pectoral injury in late August. Sanchez said that he's preparing to return as a starter, but added that he's certainly open to pitching out of the bullpen if that's what the team wants.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez (chest) will play long toss Sunday and throw off a mound Monday, if everything goes as planned,'s Jason Beck reports. Impact: Sanchez is set to make another step forward in his return from a right pectoral injury. With not much time left in the season, he'll need to progress quickly to find his way back to the roster before the postseason, assuming the Tigers make it. He'll likely require a couple sessions of live batting and possibly a few bullpen sessions before returning, but he's making progress.(RotoWire, )

News: Sanchez (pectoral) played catch in the cages Wednesday, Jason Beck of reports. Impact: It represents a positive first step for Sanchez, who was shut down for more than two weeks after suffering a setback with his right pectoral injury back on Aug. 25. He said he felt good after playing catch, but the right-hander remains without a set timetable for a return, and with the Tigers having just 17 games remaining on the schedule, it seems rather unlikely he could make it back before the end of the regular season. A return for the postseason is certainly possible, if Sanchez continues to progress without another setback.(RotoWire, )
