Anibal Done Pitching for Season

MIAMI -- After undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery on Thursday, Anibal Sanchez will not pitch for the remainder of the season. Sanchez, the 23-year-old right-hander, had a tear in his labrum repaired, and he will not throw for a minimum of three to four months.

 

The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., and there was some encouraging news. Sanchez, according to an MLB Players Association source, feared the pinching in his shoulder was nerve related. That wasn't the case.

 

Sanchez opened the season as the Marlins' No. 3 starter, but the Venezuelan labored in six starts. After posting a 2-1 record with a 4.80 ERA for Florida, he was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 4, two days after giving up three runs on seven hits with four walks in 3 1/3 innings against the Mets.

 

As a rookie in 2006, Sanchez was 10-3 with a 2.83 ERA, and he tossed a no-hitter on Sept. 6 against Arizona.

Sucks that he is done for the year, but considering he'll likely be back and ready to go for next spring, I'm not too upset. For anyone who watched him this year compared to last, you knew there had to be something wrong. At least this is taken care of now instead of later. Get well soon Anibal!

The Red Sox knew he was fragile that's why they had no problem trading him.

they had no problem trading him because they had a chance to get a top of the line starting pitcher and the best defensive(and certainly not too shabby of a hitter) 3rd baseman the game has ever seen...and in case you havent gotten the privelage(joking) of watchin the sawx for as many years as i have...they have almost always been an awful defensive team...

The best defensive 3rd baseman the game has ever seen? There's no way you're being cereal.

Lowell was attached to any deal for Beckett. I'm glad he's rebounded because he was a good player here. I'm also glad Beckett is pitching like he can this season. He pitched the greatest game in Marlins history and I saw it in person when he shut the Yankees out in Game 6 of the 2003 World Series in NY. I hope he wins a lot of games for the Red Sox and a few Cy Young Awards and he has the stuff to do it.

last time i checked he has the highest fielding % of all-time at his position...and without throwing in things like range factor and other guesstimates...i have a hard time arguing against it

Yeah, fielding percentage doesn't tell you anything about how good a defensive player is. Just that he doesn't make errors.

do we just ride these waves till next year? or does the organization think we can make a serious threat to the post-season and get a rent a player to pick us up.

 

the plan has been all along for 2008 to be the year. so whats everyone think

 

it really will be tough this year, but its do-able, but not without another starter at this point.

Reason #261.

 

So that's not true? He was always healthy for the Red Sox?

No. He was agreeing and saying that it was one of the many reasons the Red Sox had no problem trading him.

 

No, he was saying it because that was my #261st post. It's a vendetta.

kinda like how your batting average doesnt tell you anything about how good a hitter is right?
