Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez stifles Mariners in victory
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) Rookie starter Aaron Sanchez ended a two-game slide, pitching 6 2/3 solid innings of work as the Blue Jays beat the Mariners 8-2 on Sunday.
Sanchez, who improved to 4-4 on the season, scattered seven hits but allowed just two runs to help Toronto avert a sweep. He struck out four and walked just two. Sanchez pitched into the seventh inning for his second straight start and dropped his ERA to 3.98.
"He's settling in," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He's got the appearance of starting to figure this out."
Gibbons believes he will hold onto his rotation spot, according to MLB.com.
"It wasn't like it was an automatic thing that was going to happen, because a lot of us felt, too, that in time he was going to pick it up, anyway. He should, he's too good, too talented. Yeah, I think you can probably eliminate that right now," Gibbons said.

|(5/24/15) Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez evened his record at 4-4 and snapped a personal two-game losing streak by beating Seattle on Sunday.
Sanchez allowed two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two, allowing one home run.
Sanchez will start next Saturday, at Minnesota.
Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez allows three runs in loss Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez allowed three runs on six hits in 7 1/3 innings of work in Toronto's 3-2 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
Sanchez had trouble in the fourth when he allowed a solo home run to Kole Calhoun. He worked out of the inning by finishing things off with a strikeout, one of his five in the game. Then in the eighth, Sanchez put two men on before getting pulled. One of the runners would score on a sacrifice fly by David Freese.
Sanchez, now 3-4, moved his ERA to 4.17 in 45 1/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Mariners.
Blue Jays shuffle rotation, name Todd Redmond Monday starter
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) The Blue Jays will start pitcher Todd Redmond in Monday's game against the Angels, Sportsnet reports.
Redmond struggled in two relief appearances in mid-April, giving up eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking five. He's made one start and three relief appearances with Triple-A Buffalo, posting a 4.50 ERA and 13:2 K:BB ratio in 14 innings.
With the change, the team is bumping back the rest of the rotation a day, with Monday's originally-scheduled starter, Aaron Sanchez, moving to Tuesday. Drew Hutchison and R.A. Dickey will pitch Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez allows five runs in loss Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez took the loss Wednesday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Orioles.
Sanchez (3-3) was roughed up in the second inning, walking the first two batters of the frame and then giving up three doubles and a single to bring five runs home before he could record the third out. He made it through the rest of the outing without issue but wasn't picked up by his offense.
"I felt like I had good command of my changeup," Sanchez said, per MLB.com. "My curveball wasn't really where I wanted it. Fastball command was better, but like I said, I'll take the good from this start, move on and be ready for my next start."
Sanchez owns a 4.26 ERA and 25:29 K:BB ratio in 38 innings. He's scheduled to face the Angels on Monday.
|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.
