Rough game/start to the season for the kid. Obviously the majority think he is still going to be something special. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go on the DL with some kind of elbow tendonitis in the near future. Something's not right.

Kid is still gonna be awesome though.

I agree, he just doesnt look right. If he does have some sort of elbow problem he needs to go on the DL ASAP before it turns into something worse. Gaby time j/k. I hope he does turn it around though. He has some pretty good stuff.

You said the elbow thing a few times in the game thread. I'm assuming this is something you've heard or is it a feeling?

Didnt he have some kind of injury scare before spring training?

When Anibal has his control, he's very tough. On another note, did Cabrera look like he was in pain today? I know the team trainer says his injury won't get worse; I just hope it can get better, even without taking any days off.

I remember reading something where he had to stop throwing for a short period or something in ST. Hopefully it gets sorted out.

hello all

rough outing for Sanchez but on a encouraging note I think Obermueller has earned his time with the club and hopefully will be sticking around for a while as a spot starter / long relief

If they've been talking about a possible elbow problem why the hell was he pitching? Why wouldn't they check him out if there are these concerns flyign around? His command is MIA and his fastball is slower than last year's.

When you say some people... do you mean reliable people or just some random people? You don't have to post names.

This is nothing new but I decided to post it anyway.... From Rotoworld.

Anibal Sanchez took his first loss after giving up three runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Mets.
Sanchez got hit in the left leg by David Wright's comebacker in the first and was down for a minute or so, but he was able to stay in. Unfortunately, his command was well off even before the injury. He ended up walking four over the first two innings, and he's now up to 19 walks in his last five starts. He's also giving up plenty of hits, so he's pretty lucky to have a 4.80 ERA a month in.

I was there and after Anibal went down, something was not right...I don't know if the elbow problems just happened to kick in or the leg was effecting him, but when he went down in the 1st, I called my dad and said "well, there goes another starter" and gave him a standing O expecting him to be out for the game at least.

I'm not surprised to see the elbow questions start to arise. His velocity seems off and he can't control the ball to save his life right now. Plus, with the leg issue after today I really think he needs to be shelved for a while.

Sucks to lose another starter but you don't want to lose someone else to Dr. Andrews.

Up until he was taken out with the strain in his start previous against the Nats, Anibal has not looked to be injured in any of his starts to me. I didn't see today's game, so I can't comment on that.

Saying it is an injury is just making an excuse for Anibal in my mind. I have no doubt if a certain other pitcher currently on the DL was pitching the way Anibal is right now ? horrendous BB/K ratio, terrible K/9, BB/9, H/9, etc. ? the same people making excuses for Anibal right now would be all about saying this is more about the league figuring him out. Which I think is the case with Anibal right now.

Hie velocity is down, he can't locate his breaking ball, and his stuff has less bite to it.

There hasn't been too noticeable a drop in his velocity, but then again he never was a fireballer - or at least since his callup to the Marlins. He has left a number of breaking balls hanging, I'll give you that. And his control in general has left something to be desired.
