Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez drops suspension appeal

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 18:41:02 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Aaron Sanchez has dropped his appeal of a three-game suspension given to him for his role in an altercation against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's suspension will go into effect immediately. He tossed a scoreless inning against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, Aug. 4, and was unlikely to be used in the next few days anyway. While he doesn't have any FantasyScore value as long as he's pitching in relief, Sanchez is a speculative add in AL-only and deep mixed leagues because of the possibility of getting occasional save opportunities.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna could have night off

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 09:03:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna is likely to have the day off Monday, Aug. 3. RP Aaron Sanchez could be used in a save situation, and RP Mark Lowe could pitch in a late-inning spot, too.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna could be rested a bit more often after the acquisition of Lowe, which makes Toronto's bullpen much stronger. Sanchez probably won't see enough save chances to be worth owning aside from the deepest of leagues.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez could join pen Thursday

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:43:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) could join the team's bullpen Thursday, July 23, according to manager John Gibbons. Sanchez will need to pitch well Tuesday, July 21, in a rehab outing at Class AAA Buffalo, per Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will no longer have any FantasyScore value if he joins the bullpen, but he might get the opportunity to pick up a few saves, as he bolsters the Jays worrisome 'pen. Season-long owners in deeper mixed leagues can risk the speculative add.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez headed to bullpen

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 16:01:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) will pitch out of the bullpen when he returns later this week, manager John Gibbons said Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has no value at FantasyScore as long as he is out of the rotation, but as terrible as Toronto's bullpen has been this year, he could have value in seasonal leagues if he is given a chance to close out games.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez tossing for Bisons Thursday

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 13:18:14 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) continues to progress towards returning to the Blue Jays. It isn't clear at this point what his role will be when he is healthy and rejoins the big club, though. Continue to stash him in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Check back for further updates on Sanchez's recovery and for a return timeline.

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 05:13:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out two batters and inducing five ground-ball outs over 2 2/3 innings during his rehab start for high-A Dunedin Saturday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but because his role with Toronto is uncertain when he returns, he can be dropped elsewhere. Continue to check back for updates as he works his way back to the big league.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez makes rehab appearance

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 21:00:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) tossed two innings in a minor-league rehab game in the Florida Gulf Coast League Tuesday, July 7. "He gave up a couple of runs," manager John Gibbons said. "He felt good."

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is expected to make a few more appearances to build up his stamina, stretching him out to a starter's workload. However, all indications are he will work in the bullpen upon his return.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez throwing

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:32:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) threw off a mound for the first time Wednesday, July 1, since his injury and reported feeling fine after the session.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) appears that he could be headed for a relief role when he's ready to come off the DL. That would kill any fantasy value he has remaining. In deep mixed and AL-only leagues, continue holding him until it's more clear what Toronto plans to do with him.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez would only have FantasyScore appeal if he returns to the rotation, so monitor the situation closely.

Blue Jays | Mid-July return for Aaron Sanchez?

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:12:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) is scheduled to throw from a mound Wednesday, July 1, and he is expected back by mid-July barring any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Sanchez ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) will return to the rotation or a middle relief role, so avoid him in FantasyScore until his role becomes clear and he can prove his health in an appearance or two without any setbacks.
