Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, who has a 3.53 ERA this season, could miss a month with a strained pectoral muscle.

TORONTO — The Tigers placed RHPs Anibal Sanchez and Joakim Soria on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, a blow to the AL Central leaders as they try to hold off the charging Royals.

Sanchez, who is 8-5 with a 3.53 ERA, left Friday's game in the fifth inning with a strained pectoral muscle and returned to Detroit on Saturday to have an MRI exam. He's expected to miss three to four weeks.

Soria, acquired from the Rangers on July 24, left Saturday's game while warming up before the 10th inning with a strained muscle in his left side. He has a 10.38 in six games with Detroit.

The Tigers did not make any moves to replace Sanchez and Soria but plan to add two players before tonight's game at Pittsburgh.

LHP Robbie Ray is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Toledo to start in Sanchez's place for Wednesday's home game against the Pirates.

BLOW TO ANGELS: Los Angeles LHP Tyler Skaggs is scheduled to have Tommy John elbow surgery Wednesday, likely sidelining him for the entire 2015 season. Skaggs is 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA in 18 starts this season.

DODGERS LOSE SS: Los Angeles placed SS Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right rib cage muscle. Ramirez had an MRI exam Saturday, and manager Don Mattingly said the injury wasn't as severe as feared.

INDIANS: OF David Murphy (right abdominal strain) and INF/OF Nick Swisher (right knee soreness) went on the 15-day disabled list.

METS: RHP Jacob deGrom, who had emerged as a leader in the NL rookie of the year race, left the team to have his throwing shoulder examined after complaining of soreness.

PHILLIES: RHP Jerome Williams was claimed off waivers from the Rangers and is scheduled to start Tuesday.

ROCKIES: CF Carlos Gonzalez went on the 15-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle. … LHP Brett Anderson was diagnosed with a bulging disc in his lower back and is likely out for the season.
