TORONTO (AP) —nchez to the list of big leaguers to suffer suitcase-related injuries this season.Sanchez acknowledged Wednesday that the bruised right index finger that has sidelined him for the past two months occurred when his finger got caught in a falling suitcase. The incident happened June 21 http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , hours before Sanchez took the mound in Los Angeles against the Angels with about 180 friends and family from his hometown of Barstow, California, in the crowd.“It got stuck in my suitcase and it started falling,” Sanchez said. “It all happened in a span of about 30 seconds. I said ‘Ow,’ and my knuckle got super fat. I pitched that day, probably didn’t help, but it was the first time I was going to pitch in front of my family as a professional and I wanted to see what I could do.”The 2016 AL ERA champion, Sanchez allowed two runs and two hits in a 25-pitch first inning that night before being replaced. After making three minor league rehab starts Zach Davies Jersey , he will throw a side session Thursday in Toronto. If that goes well, Sanchez will be activated off the 60-day disabled list to start against Philadelphia on Saturday.Sanchez (3-5, 3.52) said part of the reason he stayed quiet about his injury was the attention Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez received for spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee while carrying a suitcase up the stairs in his home just before opening day. Perez did not return until April 24.“I didn’t want to say it then because I saw Salvador Perez go down with the same injury and I didn’t want to get laughed at,” Sanchez said.This isn’t Sanchez’s first struggle with an injury to his pitching hand. He endured multiple stints on the disabled list because of blister and fingernail issues last season, pitching just 36 innings over eight starts.

His previous contract would have expired after the 2020 season. If he fulfills his new contract http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , Francona will have been the longest tenured manager in team history, besting the nine years Lou Boudreau spent at the helm.Francona, 59, is in his seventh season with the Tribe. Over that span, he has amassed an overall record of 972-547, led the team to six consecutive winning seasons, collected three consecutive division titles, and secured a trip to the World Series in 2016.In their Tweet announcing the extension Boone Logan Jersey , the Indians made a reference to Walt Whitman’s poem, “Oh Captain! My Captain!” Literary aficionados will point out that this is somewhat of an ominous reference, considering the poem was a metaphor written in the wake of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Personally, I initially interpreted it as more of a reference to Dead Poets Society, but that film also ended with the “captain” being fired.I’m clearly reading too much into it, but I am unnerved nonetheless.
