This week I get to crush Ayebatter and claim first place.
Rangers manager Ron Washington said Monday that the club plans to make Jurickson Profar a "functional left fielder."
While the Rangers were initially expected to send Profar down the minors upon Ian Kinsler's return, they now think they can manage to get him enough at-bats by adding the outfield to his resume. For what it's worth, Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest speculates that he could be game-ready for left field within 7-10 days.
Tigers placed RHP Anibal Sanchez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 16, with a right shoulder strain.
After being scratched from a start last week due to shoulder stiffness, Sanchez lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his return on Saturday. Given his history, the smart play would have been to place him on the disabled list at the first sign of symptoms, but the Tigers aren't going to take any chances now. Jose Alvarez will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start in his place Thursday against the Red Sox.
The Tigers will call up left-hander Jose Alvarez to start Thursday against the Red Sox.
Alvarez will fill in for Anibal Sanchez (shoulder) in the starting rotation. The 24-year-old left-hander struck out seven over six innings of one-run ball against the Indians on June 9 and should carry some value in AL-only leagues for now.
Jose Alvarez tossed six innings of one-run ball in his major league debut Sunday, picking up the win in a 4-1 victory over the Indians.
Alvarez had a no-hitter going until Ryan Raburn took him deep with two outs in the fifth. He then pitched out of a two-out jam in the sixth before the Tigers took the lead for good in the bottom of the frame. Alvarez struck out seven on the day while allowing just three hits and one walk. Anibal Sanchez is expected to be ready for his next start, but the Tigers won't be worried about calling on Alvarez if need after this performance.
