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.
