 MIAMI (AP) -Anibal Sanchez's path back to the Florida Marlins has hit a significant snag.
Sanchez, who threw a no-hitter as a rookie last September but has struggled and was sent to the minors last month, will visit orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on June 20.
Sanchez has been bothered by a sore right shoulder - his pitching arm - for several months. He allowed 43 hits and 19 walks in 30 innings with the Marlins early this season, going 2-1 with a 4.80 ERA in six starts.
The Marlins sent him to Triple-A Albuquerque in early May, but he was soon placed on the minor league disabled list with the shoulder problem.
Sanchez was 10-3 with a 2.83 ERA as a rookie last season for Florida. He threw his no-hitter Sept. 6 against the Arizona Diamondbacks, in what was his 13th major-league start.
