Toronto Blue Jays RP Aaron Sanchez picked up a six-out save Saturday, Aug. 30, and manager John Gibbons said the trend could continue. "We don't want to throw him on back-to-back days unless we're forced to," Gibbons said. "So if he goes out there and he's got one inning under his belt and it's easy, we're going to ride him."

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will be called up Tuesday, July 22, along with INF Ryan Goins and RP Esmil Rogers. Sanchez was recently moved to the bullpen during his brief time at Triple-A Buffalo and probably will serve the same role in the bigs. Goins might not be there long because Steve Tolleson will be on paternity leave. Rogers will serve as a swingman reliever.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could be worth an AL-only stash in case he earns a bigger role, but there's not much immediate value here.

The Toronto Blue Jays are more likely to focus on "rental" pitchers in a trade than Chicago Cubs SP Jeff Samardzija. Kansas City Royals SP James Shields is seen as the preference for the Blue Jays should he hit the trade market. The Jays would also likely have interest in Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano and Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel. The Jays haven't been involved in talks for Samardzija, but sources say the Cubs would want SP Drew Hutchison plus either SPs Aaron Sanchez or Marcus Stroman in return for Samardzija.

The White Sox are believed to be interested in Ps Aaron Sanchez or Marcus Stroman.
