Blue Jays' Gibbons not worried about rookie Aaron Sanchez
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Blue Jays starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez isn't off to a great start this season, going 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA through two starts. Yet, manager John Gibbons isn't ready to hit the panic button with the highly touted prospect.
“Sanchie is going to be fine," Gibbons said, per Sportsnet.ca. "First time starting in the big-leagues, he’s been a starter his whole career, he was in relief last year, let him get his feet wet, let him get comfortable through it all, and he’s going to be fine.”
Sanchez reached 97 mph on the radar gun six times Thursday against the Rays and hit 96 mph twice.
“Mechanics isn’t an issue with me, it’s about making sure everything stays over the plate,” Sanchez said. “With the type of stuff I have, I’ve just got to be around the box, and I felt like I was tonight, more than I was in the first start.”
Blue Jays P Aaron Sanchez earns second loss of year vs. Rays
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez allowed three earned runs during Thursday night's 4-2 loss to the Rays.
Sanchez pitched 5 1/3 innings and gave up five hits and three walks. He struck out four batters in the game. Sanchez allowed a run each in the third and fifth inning before giving up two in the sixth.
He was relieved by Aaron Loup. Sanchez now has an ERA of 6.23 and has a record of 0-2. His next start is projected to be against the Orioles on April 22.
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez takes loss in seven-hit start
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez gave up three runs and seven hits in three and a third innings on Saturday, in a 7-1 loss to Baltimore.
Sanchez walked two and struck out one in his first Major League start. He gave up a leadoff home run to Alejandro De Aza and a solo shot to Chris Davis two batters later in the first inning.
Sanchez threw 61 pitches, 34 for strikes.
"This isn’t the way I wanted to start the season," Sanchez said, per TSN Radio. "Obviously fastball command wasn’t there and when you don’t have that as a pitcher you’re going to struggle."
His next start is expected to be Thursday, against Chris Archer and the Rays.
Hutchison, Dickey, Norris will headline Blue Jays rotation
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) The Blue Jays finalized their rotation order to start the season, according to MLB.com. John Gibbons will roll with Drew Hutchison on Opening Day against the Yankees on Monday, followed by R.A. Dickey on Wednesday and Daniel Norris on Thursday. Mark Buehrle and Aaron Sanchez will take the mound Friday and Saturday at Baltimore, respectively.
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez allows five runs, six walks Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) 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."
|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.
