Duaner Sanchez, who hasn't pitched in the majors since a taxi accident in 2006, will pitch in todays game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Sanchez missed all of 2007 as well with a hairline fracture in his shoulder. Sanchez was scheduled to pitch in yesterdays game against the Cards, but woke up with soreness and was scratched.
Bart Hubbuch in the NY Post quotes Sanchez as saying: "I'm ready to go."
Pretty exciting stuff today. Johan Santana will make the start, and Sanchez coming in for an inning will be great to watch. I'm confident Sanchez can make a full recovery and return to the dominant pitcher he once was.
