Aaron Sanchez coughs up game-winning run vs. Yankees


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Blue Jays reliever Aaron Sanchez (2-2) was pegged with a loss Thursday night against the Yankees. Sanchez allowed the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth due to a throwing error by Aaron Lind.

Sanchez was charged with one unearned run on one hit over one-third of an inning in a 3-2 defeat. He owns a 1.24 ERA and a 0.66 WHIP over 29 innings of relief.

Aaron Sanchez picks up second save Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Blue Jays reliever Aaron Sanchez picked up his second save Wednesday against the Rays.

Sanchez entered with a three-run lead, and was able to close the door. He did give up a two-out single during the inning, but struck out the final batter to end the game. Sanchez threw 12 pitches, seven of which were strikes. 


Aaron Sanchez a candidate to receive multi-inning save opportunities in September


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez is a candidate to receive occasional multi-inning save opportunities during the final month of the season, the National Post reports. Sanchez owns a 1.66 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP over 21 2/3 innings of work.

"We're trying to maximize who [Sanchez] is," manager John Gibbons said. "So if he goes out there and he's got one inning under his belt and it's easy, we're going to ride him."

Aaron Sanchez K's 3 in first career save


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez pitched two perfect innings for his first career save, as he closed out a 2-0 win over the Yankees.

Sanchez set the Yankees down in order over his two innings of work, striking out three of six batters faced on 28 total pitches. He has allowed just four runs over 21 2/3 innings since making his major-league debut, while striking out 20 batters and walking just three. 


Aaron Sanchez will not join rotation this season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez was impressive in his MLB debut Wednesday against Boston, as he struck out two batters over two perfect relief innings. Despite the strong performance, the Blue Jays will not consider moving Sanchez into the rotation, according to Sportsnet.ca.

"Sure, it’s tempting," manager John Gibbons said. "But he’s got about 30 innings and we don’t want to use all that up in a week."


Blue Jays recalling Aaron Sanchez, Ryan Goins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The Blue Jays plan to recall pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez and infielder Ryan Goins Tuesday, according to SportsNet.ca.

Sanchez is expected to pitch out of the bullpen for the Blue Jays, as he was converted to relief at Triple-A Buffalo. Goins' time with the team will likely be shorter, as he is being called up to cover for Steve Tolleson's paternity leave stint. 


Aaron Sanchez moved to bullpen at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) Blue Jays starting pitcher prospect Aaron Sanchez was moved from the rotation to the bullpen at Triple-A Buffalo, according to The Buffalo News. The moves indicates the highly touted pitching prospect could be in line for a promotion to the Toronto bullpen later this summer.

Sanchez is 0-2 with a 4.18 ERA in six starts following his promotion from Double-A New Hampshire, where he was 3-4 with a 3.82 ERA in 14 starts.


Aaron Sanchez 'sitting on the doorstep'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Blue Jays power-pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez is "sitting on the doorstep of a Major League debut" after his promotion to Triple-A Buffalo last week, reports MLB.com. However, his first start with the Bisons didn't go well, as he allowed four earned runs on six hits and four walks over four innings in a 7-2 loss.

At Double-A New Hampshire, Sanchez walked 40 batters in 66 innings.

"Walks are up, and that's probably the biggest thing," Blue Jays assistant general manager and vice president of baseball operations TonyLaCava told the website. "He needs to continue to become more efficient with his pitches. And again, we'd like to see the walk rates go down, but as far as his upside is concerned, we think he's got a great future."

Sanchez pitched 13 scoreless innings in spring training. He posted a 3.82 ERA in 14 starts with New Hampshire.


Aaron Sanchez not worth stashing in seasonal formats


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Blue Jays starting pitcher prospect Aaron Sanchez got one step closer to the majors Thursday, as he was promoted from Double-A New Hampshire to Triple-A Buffalo. While the move could signal the Blue Jays are entertaining the idea of bringing Sanchez to the majors this season, I'm not as convinced and not sure Fantasy owners should be stashing the highly touted pitching prospect.

My biggest concern is Sanchez's innings. He's never pitched more than 90 1/3 innings as a pro and only tossed 86 1/3 innings last season. The recent trend has been teams only extending young pitchers about 30 innings more than what they did the previous season.

Sanchez is already at 66 innings this season, so it seems the Blue Jays want the 21-year-old right-hander to get as many starts at Triple-A this season before he gets shut down. The team does have to get Sanchez's stamina built up, but they aren't going to risk a major injury and put added stress on one of their top prospects.

Also, it's very concerning to see Sanchez continue to have control problems. He's walking 5.5 batters per nine innings this season and 4.9 over his career. Pitchers can get away with control problems in the minors, but major-league hitters usually do a good job of making pitchers pay for walks. So even if he is called up, I'm not convinced Sanchez will be an impact arm immediately.

I'm not completely down on Sanchez's long-term outlook, but I just wouldn't stash him in seasonal formats because he's been promoted to Triple-A.


Aaron Sanchez gets a step closer


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Blue Jays pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez has been promoted to Triple-A Buffalo, according to Sportsnet.

The 21-year-old has posted a 3.82 ERA over 14 starts in Double-A, prompting the callup. Sanchez entered the season as the team's best prospect according to Baseball America


Aaron Sanchez doing well despite high walk rate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Blue Jays starting pitcher prospect Aaron Sanchez had one of his best starts for Double-A New Hampshire in his last outing. Sanchez tossed six scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks, while striking out six.

Sanchez is 1-1 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through four starts. He also has 18 strikeouts and has allowed just one home run in 19 2/3 innings.

However, Sanchez continues to have some control problems. He's walking 4.6 batters per nine innings, which is right on target with his career walk rate (4.7 BB/9).


Aaron Sanchez sent down despite brilliant spring


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) The Blue Jays showed restraint and sent impressive 21-year-old right-hander Aaron Sanchez to minor league camp. He is likely to open the year in Double-A.

Sanchez pitched 12 1/3 innings of shutout ball this spring.


Aaron Sanchez continues roll by blanking Rays


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Blue Jays premier pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez gave his team more food for thought Friday in regard to sliding him into the starting rotation. He blanked a premier Tampa Bay lineup over 5 1/3 innings, giving up just three hits in the process. He walked three and struck out two.

Sanchez has pitched 12 1/3 innings this spring without surrendering a run. The Blue Jays, however, will likely decide the 21-year-old needs more seasoning in the minors. He has yet to pitch at a higher level than Class A Advanced.


Cubs ask Blue Jays for top two pitching prospects for Samardzija


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) The Cubs have offered to trade pitcher Jeff Samardzija to the Blue Jays for prospect pitchers Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman as well as a third player, the Toronto Sun reports. However, the Blue Jays aren't willing to meet that asking price.

"I don’t know if I could quantify how far off that they might be," Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. "We continue to have dialogue, so if you want to look at that as encouraging, I don’t know. It’s not so far out of the realm that we won’t continue to have talks."

Sanchez, 21, went 4-5 with a 3.34 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 75:40 K:BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings with high Class A Dunedin last season. Stroman, 22, went 9-5 with a 3.30 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 129:27 K:BB ratio in 111 2/3 innings with Double-A New Hampshire.


Aaron Sanchez throws three scoreless innings Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2013) Blue Jays pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez returned to the mound Friday for the first time since May 18, throwing three scoreless innings for Class A Dunedin. He had been on the minor-league disabled list with a shoulder injury.

"It was a relief to get back out there pain free," Sanchez told MLB.com. "I worked hard to get back out there. It was fun to get back out there and compete against a good ball club like the Daytona Cubs."

Sanchez is 2-2 with a 2.96 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings for Dunedin.
