    • Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said it's more likely than not that Sanchez will have his innings limited this season, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. Sanchez has pitched 125.1 innings so far in 2016. Heading into the season, his highest season total was 109.2 innings in 2013. While there is no exact number of innings he will throw, the Blue Jays will be in a tough spot if they continue to stay in the playoff hunt. This will definitely be a situation to monitor, as the Blue Jays may give Sanchez extra days off between starts, put him in the bullpen or shut him down completely.

    • Sanchez (11-1) was dealing on Monday, shutting out the Padres over seven innings, allowing three hits, walking two, and striking out seven. Sanchez has been on a tear of late, allowing a total of eight earned runs over his last seven games. The 24-year-old hasn't lost a game since April and has shown no signs of slowing down. He'll carry a sterling 2.72 ERA into his start Sunday against the Orioles.

    • Sanchez (10-1) allowed just one run on six hits with five strikeouts over seven innings in a win Tuesday over Arizona. Sanchez now has six straight starts in which he allowed two or fewer run. He continues to do it via the grounder, as he earned 12 groundouts against just four flyouts as he cruised to the victory Tuesday night. In those six aforementioned starts, Sanchez has allowed just two home runs. His 0.7 HR/9 ranks 16th in the league, particularly impressive considering he plays half his games at Rogers Centre.

    • Through the first half of the 2016 campaign, Sanchez (9-1) sits out the All-Star Game with a 2.97 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 103 strikeouts through 18 starts (118.1 innings). Sanchez was hoping to make his first All-Star appearance and his numbers warranted a selection. He has the fourth-best ERA in the AL, and his 14 quality starts are tied for tops in MLB alongside Madison Bumgarner, Clayton Kershaw and Jon Lester. These types of numbers, if continued over a full season, make a guy worthy of being a candidate for the Cy Young Award. The unfortunate news for Sanchez and his owners is that the team seems committed to the idea of moving him to the bullpen at some point during the second half of the season to preserve his young arm.
