Anibal Sanchez Looking Forward To New Opportunity With Detroit

Pitcher Anibal Sanchez met with media in Miami to discuss the trade that sent him and Omaf Infante from the Marlins to the Detroit Tigers on Monday in exchange for Jacob Turner, Rob Brantly and Brian Flynn.

Sanchez is appreciative of the Marlins organization and excited about coming to Detroit, via mlive.com:

"It's like a new era for me. It's a new opportunity with a new team," Sanchez said. "I'm so glad to be part of the Marlins for a while. I don't have any problem with them. (The Marlins) had a lot of patience with me. I had a lot of injuries for a while. They trusted me, and that's really important."

Video of the scrum can be found on MLB.com. Sanchez could make his first start for the Tigers as soon as Saturday in Toronto.
