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

Sanchez had been scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday, but he ended up long tossing instead and expected to throw a side session on Friday.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus offered no timetable as to when Sanchez may return.

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