Anibal Sanchez getting closer

Anibal Sanchez is getting closer to returning to the Marlins rotation.  He had a good night in Palm Beach last night.

Anibal Sanchez, recovering from a sprained shoulder, threw 6 2/3 hitless innings in his third rehab start Friday as the Jupiter Hammerheads blanked the Palm Beach Cardinals, 3-0, at Roger Dean Stadium.

The 25-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked two in the longest outing of his current rehab stint. He faced 21 batters and induced nine ground-ball outs and six pop-ups, including three in the sixth inning.

Anibal is too good for high-A.  Like that is news.
