Anibal Sanchez was born on Monday, February 27, 1984, in Maracay, Aragua, Venezuela. Sanchez was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on June 25, 2006, with the Florida Marlins. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Anibal Sanchez baseball stats page.

"Thrust onto baseball's biggest stage as an emergency starter, Sanchez was simply brilliant, tossing 5 2/3 innings in his Major League debut [ box score ]. Undaunted by Yankee Stadium mystique, the 22-year-old right-hander silenced the Yankees in a 5-0 Florida win in Game 2 of doubleheader." - Joe Frisaro on MLB.com (06/26/2006)

Did you know that Anibal Sanchez was the sixth starting pitcher in Florida Marlins history to win his Major League debut ( June 25, 2006 )?

Did you know that when Anibal Sanchez threw a no-hitter on September 6, 2006 , he ended the longest no-hitter drought in Major League Baseball history (6,364 consecutive Major League games without a no-hitter / the streak starting the day after May 18, 2004 , when Randy Johnson threw a perfect game ). Anibal was the second Venezuelan -born pitcher to record a no hitter, joining Wilson Alvarez ( August 11, 1991 ), and the fourth Marlins no-hit pitcher, joining Al Leiter ( May 11, 1996 ), Kevin Brown ( June 10, 1997 ) and A.J. Burnett ( May 12, 2001 ).

Did you know that Anibal Sanchez had his first career extra base hit on April 15, 2012 , a triple at Marlins Park - which also happened to be the first triple ever hit in the newly opened ballpark (it was just four games old)?

Did you know that when Anibal Sanchez won the ERA Title in 2013 , finishing the year with an American League leading 2.40 ERA / Top 25 , he was the fourth Detroit Tiger right-handed pitcher with an ERA championship , joining Dizzy Trout ( 1944 ), Mark Fidrych ( 1976 ) and Justin Verlander ( 2011 )?

On October 12, 2013 , Anibal Sanchez became only the second pitcher in Major League history (the first from an American League team) to strike out four batters in the same inning during a postseason game and the first Detroit Tigers pitcher in history to record a four strikeout inning . The four batters who "helped" Anibal make history were Jacoby Ellsbury , Shane Victorino (reached base on a passed ball), David Ortiz and Mike Napoli .

On October 14, 1908 , Orval Overall , during the first inning of Game 5 in the 1908 World Series , became the first pitcher to strikeout four in a postseason inning. The four batters who "helped" Orval make history were Charley O'Leary , Ty Cobb , Claude Rossman (reached base on the passed ball) and Germany Schaefer .

Anibal Sanchez, 17-Strikeouts Ticket
Anibal Sanchez 17-Strikeout Ticket | April 26, 2013 | Baseball Almanac Collection
Anibal Sanchez, who was traded to the Detroit Tigers on July 23, 2012, has struck out more hitters in a game than any Detroit Tigers pitcher EVER ! On April 26, 2013 , during a 10–0 interleague victory at Comerica Park against the Atlanta Braves, Sanchez set a new franchise record with 17 strikeouts, breaking the previous team record of 16 set by Mickey Lolich on May 23, 1969 (who tied his own record that same season on June 9, 1969 ). Amazingly, Sanchez set the team record in only 8 innings, as he was removed from the game prior to the ninth inning after throwing 121 pitches.
