In his recent Fish Tank blog (posted, May 31, 2010) Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Joe Capozzi had the opportunity to catch up with my client, Marlins starting pitcher, Anibal Sanchez.
Is Florida Marlins pitcher Anibal Sanchez building an All Star case?
by Joe Capozzi
Beautiful weather here on Memorial Day for the Marlins and Brewers. Before we get into today’s game, wanted to get your thoughts on Anibal Sanchez, who’s on quite a roll after beating the Phillies 1-0 yesterday.
Anibal is 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA in six starts this month. (His teammate, Josh Johnson, is 3-1 with an even stingier 1.38 ERA).
If Sanchez can do in June what he did in May, we just might see him at the All Star Game in July, perhaps with JJ.
Of course, Sanchez — 5-2 with a 2.89 ERA — is in uncharted territory now.
Healthy with no shoulder problems for the first time in his major league career, this is the first time in his career he won four straight starts. He finished his rookie season of 2006 with a 5-1 record over his last six starts.
Sanchez gave credit for his strong start to Adam Brush, a trainer at the Institute Of Human Performance in Boca Raton.
During the past off-season, Sanchez said he made the 30-minute drive every day to Boca to work out with Brush. Sanchez met Brush through Reds catcher Ramon Hernandez.
The month of June will be Sanchez’s big test, a chance to prove he belongs among the game’s top starting pitchers.
