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 | Aaron Sanchez remains on schedule

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:45:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) felt fine after he long tossed at Dunedin, Fla. Monday, June 29, and he is still set to throw his scheduled bullpen session Wednesday, July 1, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is there no clear timeline when Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will return, there is an outside chance he returns and pitches out of the bullpen, too. He isn't worth stashing outside of deep mixed and AL-only formats. FantasyScore players will want to be careful with utilizing Sanchez until he proves he is healthy and fares well on the hill.

Blue Jays | Still unsure of Aaron Sanchez return date

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 15:02:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) is still out due to a lat injury and the team is still of his return date.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) won't be rushed along, but Scott Copeland, his replacement, bombed in his turn on the mound Sunday, June 21, when he gave up seven runs. Copeland won't be a good temporary fix in the lineup. Monitor Sanchez's progress.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez's return uncertain

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 17:58:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) is on the 15-day disabled list due to a mild strain of the latissimus dorsi muscle, and manager John Gibbons said he has "no idea" when Sanchez will return. While he said Sanchez's injury isn't serious, he also added there is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to wait to see Sanchez officially return and prove his health in a full start without any setbacks before trusting him again. Meanwhile, Scott Copeland will start Wednesday against Miami, and is a decent short-term play in deeper AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez's injury not serious

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:35:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez's (lat) lat injury is not expected to be serious, according to manager John Gibbons. Gibbons noted after Sanchez's MRI results are known, there will be a clearer indication of the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is expected to miss just a single start, but FantasyScore players will want to be cautious with rushing him back into their lineups. Seasonal owners in deep leagues should also wait a start or two before returning him to their lineups. Continue to check back for updates. Sanchez has five wins and a 3.55 ERA this year, but his 5.18 FIP, 1.43 WHIP and 5.7 K/9 are potential indicators of tougher times ahead.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez to DL

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 15:04:26 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lat strain, effective Sunday, June 14. SP Scott Copeland was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo in a corresponding move, and he will start Wednesday, June 17, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be shelved immediately and not reinserted until he proves he is back to 100 percent health. He will miss just one start, because the DL stint is retroactive to June 6.
