Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez to remain a starter for now

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 12:45:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will stay in the rotation "for the time being", according to general manager Ross Atkins, after the team contemplated moving him to the bullpen in an effort to keep his innings down. As a result, the Blue Jays will move forward with a six-man rotation.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays' trade-deadline deal for Francisco Liriano was supposed to pave the way for Sanchez, who has already pitched 39 more innings than he ever has, to become a reliever. Instead, Sanchez will remain a starter alongside Marcus Stroman, R.A. Dickey, J.A. Happ, Marco Estrada and Liriano. Toronto could conceivably change its mind at any point, but owners should be thrilled they can keep trotting out the AL's ERA leader (2.71), including Saturday night's game against the Kansas City Royals.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez extends win streak to 10

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:52:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez won his 10th straight decision Monday, July 25, versus the San Diego Padres. The right-hander tossed seven scoreless innings, issuing only three hits and two walks. He also struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: There is simply nobody on the mound hotter than Sanchez right now. Not only does the 24-year-old continue to win, but he consistently gives his owners standout performances, such as in tonight's assignment. In fact, this was the eighth instance this season in which Sanchez went at least seven innings and allowed one run or less. Just keep trotting him out there.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez terrific, now 10-1

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:17:22 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez improved his record to 10-1 after beating the Arizona Diamondbacks in his start Tuesday, July 19. The right-hander delivered seven terrific innings of one-run ball, scattering only six hits. He also struck out five and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has been on some kind of roll over the past couple of months, as he's now racked up a quality start in 10 of his last 11 assignments. Clearly, the All-Star is in a groove right now, and should be fired up in all fantasy lineups every time he toes the rubber -- no matter the opponent.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez gets ASG nod

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 12:47:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez was named as an All-Star Game injury replacement for Boston Red Sox SP Craig Kimbrel (knee) on Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Most fantasy owners already know Kimbrel is expected to miss three to six weeks. Sanchez's inclusion in the Midsummer Classic is a well-deserved one, as he has posted a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP to go along with 103 strikeouts across 118 1/3 innings.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez labors through five frames

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 13:25:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez did not have his best stuff in a no-decision versus the Detroit Tigers on Saturday, July 9, and needed 92 pitches to make it through five frames. Sanchez ended his day giving up two runs on five hits and a pair of walks.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has set an incredibly high standard for himself in 2016, so while the two runs allowed is far from a disgrace, Saturday marked only the third time in his 18 starts this season he failed to last six innings. The 24-year-old standout should be one of Toronto's first three starters to work after the All-Star break and, if so, he'll have a great chance to collect his 10th win against the Oakland Athletics when the Blue Jays return to action next weekend.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez baffles Kansas City

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:46:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez encountered little resistance from the Kansas City Royals on his way to an eighth straight winning decision Monday, July 4, giving up only a solo home run to Kendrys Morales among the three hits he allowed over eight innings.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez was supposed to move to the bullpen at some point during the summer in order to keep his innings down, but manager John Gibbons has since walked back from that statement a bit. Despite going exactly eight innings in three of his last six turns, the 24-year-old has yet to throw more than 106 pitches in any game this season. At this point, it would be an upset if he doesn't remain in the rotation, so owners should feel good about his ability to contribute solid four-category production all season long.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez may avoid trip to 'pen

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 09:58:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez has pitched so well this year that the Blue Jays have been forced to reconsider their plan to shift him to the bullpen in the second half. The team's potential trade targets ahead of the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline could affect the usage of Sanchez for the rest of the year. After his start Wednesday, June 29, Sanchez is at a team-high 105 1/3 innings, which is four short of the 109 1/3 frames he pitched in 2015. Toronto is considering using SP Drew Hutchinson in the second half to give Sanchez some rest.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has been fantastic as a value pick for fantasy owners this year with his 8-1 record, 3.08 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 16 starts. But given his workload it's inevitable that he'll be rested or even sent to the bullpen in the second half, meaning now is the time to sell high in redraft leagues.
