Anibal aiming for return to rotation at Fenway

DETROIT -- Beyond Max Scherzer starting in the series opener next weekend in Boston, there is some uncertainty with the Tigers' starting rotation.

Anibal Sanchez, who continues to recover from a finger laceration, said that the target date for his return is the series finale on May 18 at Fenway Park.

"We talk about probably next Sunday, but I don't know yet," Sanchez said.

"There's a day in mind, but we have to wait and see," the skipper said.
