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.

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.
