Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: May be held back in rotation order to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez may be held back until the Jays' home opener April 11 against Milwaukee when the team sets its rotation to begin the season, the Toronto Star reports.

The Jays have brought Sanchez along slowly this spring, putting him slightly behind the team's other starting pitchers. The home opener will be the Jays' seventh game of 2017, while a pair of off-days built into the schedule will afford him extra rest if desired. Sanchez, who has been working on a changeup this spring, went 3.1 innings against the Orioles on Tuesday, but he struggled with his control and walked four batters despite holding the Baltimore lineup to one run and one hit.

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Shakes off rust in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez pitched 1.2 innings, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one in Saturday's game against the Phillies.

Sanchez's Grapefruit League debut lasted 31 pitches (19 strikes) and saw his fastball sit comfortably between 96-97 mph. He leaned heavily on his heater, as he does, but also mixed in a series of good curveballs and the occasional changeup, a pitch Sanchez has been diligently working on refining. Last year's breakout star used his changeup on less than 10 percent of his deliveries, but hopes to turn the off-speed pitch into a weapon this season.

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Saving innings at Grapefruit League's expense
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

In an effort to preserve his arm, Sanchez won't appear in any of the team's exhibition games during the first two weeks of spring training, the Toronto Star reports.

After pitching his way into the Cy Young race last season, Sanchez was extended far beyond what the Jays' had originally planned for. The team wanted to move the young gun to the bullpen after the All Star break, but that option was thrown out the window when Sanchez turned into Toronto's best starter in 2016. With the regular season being 162 games and because spring training is arguably too long, pitching coach Pete Walker is taking imaginative steps to conserve some innings that count for his starting pitcher. "We plan on 200 innings from these guys," Walker said. "So if there's an opportunity for us ... obviously they have to be ready to go at the start of the season, but there is a way that you can kind of ease them into spring training and still get the workload that you need to be ready for the start of the season."

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Reins are off for 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will not face an innings limit in 2017, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a breakout year with the Blue Jays in 2016, posting a 3.00 ERA and a 15-2 record in 192.0 innings, also earning him a seventh-place finish in the AL Cy Young voting. Toronto has eased Sanchez into the majors, skipping some of his starts as the season progressed. Expect him to put together a strong season in 2017 as he will finally be looking forward to a full season without an innings limit.

Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Working to strengthen lower body
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanchez has been working alongside the Jays' high performance team to build lower-body strength, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Sanchez has been putting in the extra work at the Jays' Dunedin complex. Through the workouts, the 24-year-old has reportedly improved his vertical jump, range of motion and power. Sanchez put in similar efforts last offseason, and that was rewarded with a career year in 2016 that ended with a seventh-place finish in the AL Cy Young voting.
