Detroit Tigers players will look to wrap up a successful series against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Detroit will head to Boston following the game, but first, Anibal Sanchez will start in Chicago.
Detroit Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez will look to win his sixth contest on Sunday afternoon as the team looks for a series victory in the Windy City. The veteran right-hander will look to build off his last outing against Minnesota.
In Sanchez’ outing versus the Twins, the 32-year-old struck out 10 batters, and showed signs of turning things around. He’ll look to continue to build on that momentum against Jose Quintana and a struggling White Sox team.
While the team has struggled, Quintana himself has turned in an excellent season. The southpaw owns a 3.13 ERA and 112 strikeouts in 123.2 innings pitched. He’s also racked up a 2.0 WAR in just 19 starts.
Despite the solid numbers this season, a number of Tigers have done extremely well against the Chicago starter. Leading the way is Victor Martinez, who unsurprisingly has done well against yet another White Sox pitcher. The designated hitter has posted a stellar .424 batting average in 33 at-bats versus Quintana.
In addition to Martinez, nearly every Major League infielder on Detroit’s payroll has found success against the Chicago pitcher. Mike Aviles has hit .385 in 26 at-bats, while Miguel Cabrera boasts a .371 average in 35 at-bats.
Additionally, Nick Castellanos is batting .346 in 26 at-bats. Rounding out the list are Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias. The second baseman is hitting .333 in 36 at-bats, while Jose Iglesias has batted .308 in 13 at-bats.
