Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez still headed to bullpen

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:36:46 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will be relegated to the bullpen later this season, manager John Gibbons reiterated Wednesday, June 15. "It's going to happen."

Fantasy Tip: There are plenty of leagues where a move to the bullpen will curb Sanchez's fantasy value, so it isn't out of the question to begin shopping the righty now. He is 6-1 with a 3.38 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and 83 strikeouts through 85 1/3 innings, and Sanchez could fetch a nice return. It would be wise to act quickly.

Tigers | James McCann out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:00:54 -0700

Detroit Tigers C James McCann is not starting Tuesday, June 7, against the Toronto Blue Jays. C Jarrod Saltalamacchia is in the lineup and will bat eighth against Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: McCann and Saltalamacchia have platooned all season when healthy, so this is a normal night off for McCann. Although Saltalamacchia has seven homers, not much else qualifies him for fantasy value.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez bounces back

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allowed six hits while walking two and striking out six over seven shutout innings in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez recovered from his worst outing of the year, and he has now allowed one earned run or less in four of his five starts. The 23-year-old should only improve, and he needs to be owned and starting in all formats.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allowed a career-high six runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Oakland Athletics Friday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez had been brilliant in his first three starts, so don't panic after one bump in the road. He is just 23 years old and packs plenty of upside.

Blue Jays | Toronto could use six starters

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 17:03:52 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are entertaining the idea of temporarily using a six-man rotation, in order to limit the number of innings that SPs Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman will throw this season. SP Drew Hutchison, who is currently pitching for Class AAA Buffalo, is the most likely candidate to be used as a sixth starter, although RPs Gavin Floyd and Jesse Chavez (back) could also step into the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto's starters lead the majors in innings pitched (95) and the team is in the midst of a stretch where they play 29 games in 30 days, hence the desire to add another starter. Hutchison is worthy of consideration for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues if he gets promoted. Manager John Gibbons views Floyd as a pitcher only capable of throwing one to three innings at this point and Chavez has been battling a sore back recently, so they appear less likely to be used in starting roles.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez solid in no-decision

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 23:46:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allowed two runs - one earned - and three hits with three walks and five strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday, April 12, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has managed a 1.38 ERA over his first two outings, both quality starts, but he has no victories to show for his solid pitching. Still, he is a nice fantasy option in AL-only leagues and some mixed formats. If he is available off the waiver wire you should snap him up now.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez tough on Tampa

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 20:01:56 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez allowed one earned run, five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts over seven strong innings in a no-decision against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, April 5.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez was in line for the win, but Brett Cecil had an uncharacteristically poor outing in the eighth inning to cough up the lead. If Sanchez is available in AL-only and deeper mixed formats, he isn't a bad add. He could be in line for a big season for fantasy owners with a little foresight.
