Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez to pitch out of bullpen upon activation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez, who is on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo, will pitch out of the bullpen upon his activation from the disabled list, manager John Gibbons told reporters Sunday. 

Sanchez (lat) will make a relief appearance Tuesday for Buffalo before being activated later in the week.

"We want to strengthen that area," Gibbons said. "You put him, (Roberto) Osuna, (Bo) Schultz, it makes the depth so much better."

The right-hander has made three starts between the Rookie League, Class A Dunedin and Buffalo since beginning a rehab assignment July 7. However, he has not lasted more than 3 1/3 innings in any of those outings. He is 0-1 with a 5.63 ERA.


Blue Jays: Aaron Sanchez needs one more rehab start


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez declared himself ready to return after a shaky rehab start on Thursday, but the team had other ideas.

Sanchez will need another rehab start at Triple-A Buffalo before he's ready to return, manager John Gibbons said. 

The team wants to see a higher pitch count and better command. Sanchez threw 32 strikes in 63 pitches on Thursday. 

"He felt good, I think he was a little erratic that first inning," Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He faced seven or eight guys and then he settled in OK ... We want him feeling good. He was on a nice little roll when he got injured, but he's going to be vital to us one way or the other."

Sanchez is on the disabled list with a strained lat.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) After completing his third rehab start Thursday, Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez said he is ready to return to the team, reports the National Post.

"If [Thursday] I was in a big-league game, I'd be ready for sure," he said.

Sanchez will likely need one more rehab outing after struggling in Thursday's start at Triple-A.

"I don't think I was that bad," he said. "I haven't been pitching in an environment like this, being one step away from the big leagues. I was kind of out there rushing a little bit, wanting to get guys out. But I felt like after the first inning I settled in nicely."

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez starts rehab stint in Gulf Coast League


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez began a minor league rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League with the GCL Blue Jays on Tuesday. 

Sanchez has been out with June 5 with a strained lat muscle. 

He pitched two innings, allowing two runs on three hits. Sanchez walked a batter and struck out a batter.

"Felt good, gave up a couple of runs, but felt good," manager John Gibbons said. 

The team is going to build Sanchez up so that he can contribute as a starter, although the team could bring him back sooner in a relief role. 

"That could happen, but we're gearing up to start," Gibbons said. "We'll see how he holds up and make sure that he still feels good."


Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez throws off mound on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez inching closer to return, role uncertain


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/30/2015) Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez is on the mend and is close to returning from a strained lat muscle that has had him on the disabled list since June 5. Sanchez threw off flat ground on Monday, and is expected to throw bullpen sessions on Wednesday and Saturday. 

But the question of his role upon his return remains in question. Will he rejoin the rotation, or will he be sent to the bullpen?

"I really loved what he was doing when he was starting," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He was picking up steam, he was moving the right direction, he was really turning into a dominant pitcher. But this setback, it could be a one-time thing we think, and now we have to build him up.

"We've also looked at the 'pen, we have to make it stronger. We like the way it's starting to set up, but you can always make it stronger, and he's a guy we definitely think can do that."

Sanchez owns a 3.55 ERA through his first 11 starts this year. He was particularly strong in his last four starts, with a 2.57 ERA over 28 innings of work.

Gibbons said that Sanchez would need to make rehab starts before returning to the Jays.  


Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez makes 25 throws from 60 feet


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez said he made 25 throws from 60 feet on Monday and reported feeling pain-free. He added he is making good progress recovering from a lat strain.

The Blue Jays are using Thursday's off-day to skip Scott Copeland's turn in the rotation. The Blue Jays won't need a fifth starter until June 30, but it is unlikely Sanchez will be ready to make that start.

Sanchez said he wasn't sure what the next step in his rehab would be following Monday's throwing session.

"It just kind of lingered around, didn't really feel anything coming off the mound," Sanchez said of the original injury, per MLB.com. "The next couple of days, the soreness I had just wasn't going away.

"I thought it was just regular normal soreness that I've always had that lingered around. When I started playing catch, it was coming back. It's one of those things where I felt like not playing catch was helping it."

Sanchez is on the 15-day disabled list with a lat injury. Walker implied that it would be the first time that Sanchez threw with intensity since suffering the injury, per the National Post.

'This [injury] snuck up on him a little bit, and we're being cautious," Walker said. "He feels great, right now, so we're anticipating getting him back relatively soon. We'll stay on top of it in the second half of the season, but we expect him to be really good for us."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Sanchez was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Marlins, but Gibbons said he is dealing with body soreness. Scott Copeland will receive the start instead.

"He's a hardworking guy when he's out there -- there's zero finesse to him," Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He's chopping up some innings, went the into the ninth the other day. He's got a little fatigue. Figured we can't afford to lose him, so back him off a start. He'll be good to go the next go-around."

Sanchez is 2-1 with a 2.57 ERA in his last four starts.

Sanchez served up a solo home run to Chris Herrmann in the third inning, and then gave up a run-scoring double to Trevor Plouffe in the fourth. 

"I felt like I was out there battling today," Sanchez said to MLB.com. "A little upset I got beat twice on offspeed [pitches]. I thought Russ [Martin] did a really good job behind the dish, sticking with the gameplan, was tremendous behind the dish throwing runners out. That's what helped me out a lot, just a tough one today."

After a rough beginning to the season, Sanchez has now tossed three straight quality starts for the Blue Jays. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Friday at home against the Astros.


Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez stifles Mariners in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) 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.
