News: Dr. James Andrews examined Sanchez on Wednesday and confirmed his diagnosis of a pectoral strain, Jason Beck of reports. Impact: Sanchez was forced to cut his bullpen session short after just one pitch Tuesday, with the stabbing pain in his pectoral muscle too severe to press on. The Tigers opted to send Sanchez for a second opinion to gauge the true severity of the issue, and while the injury has been confirmed as a strain, there is still no timetable for the right-hander to return to the club. His season is very much in jeopardy, but the team is still holding out hope that he can contribute before the end of September.(RotoWire, )
