Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez allows five runs, six walks Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4:50 pm ET) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez surrendered five earned runs on six hits and six walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 10-6 win over the Phillies Tuesday.
Sanchez endured his worst start of the spring Tuesday, walking six batters after issuing just four walks over his first four appearances. He closes Grapefruit League play with a 5.16 ERA and 11:10 K:BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings. Sanchez is set to open the season in the major-league rotation.
"I didn't really give myself a chance today," Sanchez said in reference to the high number of walks. "I don't think [it was] anything mechanical-wise. I think it was just one of those days where it was super-hot, I was wet, things were slipping and I wasn't good. That being said, [I need to] just work out the kinks over the next five days and be ready to go again."
Blue Jays LHP Mark Buehrle said he'll make first start April 10
|(3/29/15) Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle said he will make his first start of the season April 10 in Baltimore, reports MLB.com.|
The Blue Jays have not yet officially announced their rotation but it is expected they'll go in the order of: Drew Hutchison, R.A. Dickey, Daniel Norris, Buehrle and Aaron Sanchez.
"Doesn't matter to me," Buehrle said when asked if he had a preference. "I'm going to get 33 starts in by the end of the year, so it doesn't matter."
The left hander has started three games this spring, posing a 2.45 ERA in 9 2/3 innings.
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez able to keep pace with Phillies ace
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Blue Jays starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez held his own against Phillies ace Cole Hamels during Thursday's spring game. While Hamels didn't allow a hit through four innings and tossed five scoreless innings, Sanchez allowed just one run on two hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings.
Sanchez, who struck out two, didn't allow a hit until there was one out in the fourth inning. He retired 10 of the first 11 batters he faced, allowing just a walk in that span.
Sanchez lowered his ERA to 3.93. He has nine strikeouts through five starts (18 1/3 innings).
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez allows three runs vs. Red Sox
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez surrendered three earned runs on four hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings while striking out three in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Red Sox.
Sanchez hasn't been at his best this spring, and Thursday's outing raises his Grapefruit League ERA to 4.85 in 13 innings.
Manager John Gibbons conceded that Sanchez's hard curveball is "hit or miss" and that a slider would be easier for the pitcher to control, the Toronto Star reports.
"A get-me-over pitch if the curveball’s not there that night," Gibbons said. "But the way he throws it could turn into a big strikeout pitch for him as well. But it’s a work in progress and he’s going to take some time to develop it."
Sanchez said he's still figuring out the pitch, which looks more like a hard cutter at this point.
"It’s such a new pitch I’m still trying to feel it," Sanchez said after Thursday’s outing. "For the most part it was working the way I wanted it to. Not necessarily for strikes, but in between (starts) that’s something we can square up. I think it’s just to add another weapon in my back pocket."
Sanchez is expected to open the season in the rotation after the team lost Marcus Stroman to a torn ACL.
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez will likely break camp as starter
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that Aaron Sanchez will likely break camp as a starter, according to Sportsnet.com.
Sanchez, the 34th overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft, made his Blue Jays debut in July. He finished 2014 with a 1.09 ERA, a 0.70 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB ratio over 33.0 innings of work in the majors. The 22-year-old went 3-7 with a 3.95 ERA in 22 appearances (20 starts) between Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo last season.
|2014 Summary: Aaron Sanchez, one of the Blue Jays' top pitching prospects, got his first big-league call-up shortly after the All-Star break, and he got steady work out of the bullpen. He even got three saves chances late in the season, converting them all. While Sanchez was spectacular in relief, posting a 1.09 ERA over 33 innings, he had less success as a starter during his time in the minors. Splitting his time between the Jays' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates, Sanchez was wild, walking 5.2 batters per nine innings over 20 starts.|
Playing time status: Sanchez's role is unclear heading into spring training. He's in the mix for the fifth starter job as well as maybe the closer role. The Blue Jays' other top candidate for the role, Brett Cecil, got off to a late start this spring because of inflammation in his rotator cuff, but then again, the Blue Jays also lost arguably their top starting pitcher, Marcus Stroman, to a torn ACL.
2015 Outlook: In other words, Sanchez has ample opportunity to break through with a meaningful role and the upside to make a significant contribution in Fantasy. Because he's eligible at relief pitcher, he'll be worth drafting in Head-to-Head leagues as either a starter or closer, but then again, he's more likely to maximize his potential as a closer.
