The Call-Up

Aaron Sanchez

by Mark Anderson and Ben Carsley


The Situation: As the Blue Jays strive to hang around the playoff race, their bullpen needed support and the club opted to look for that in the form of their top prospect. Sanchez will arrive in Toronto to fill a relief role in the middle innings.

Background: A supplemental pick in the 2010 draft, Sanchez has moved steadily through the Blue Jays' system since signing that summer. After two seasons spending time in the rookie and short-season leagues, Sanchez made his full-season debut with Lansing in 2012, posting a 2.49 ERA in 90 1/3 innings. The success continued in High-A in 2013 with a 3.34 ERA at just 20 years old. Sanchez reached the upper levels in 2014, showing flashes of brilliance and bouts of inconsistency with Double-A New Hampshire to start the season. After notching a 3.82 ERA in 14 starts, Sanchez was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo where he's had up and down ride and a 4.19 ERA.

Scouting Report: In three viewings this summer, I have seen the highs and the lows that Sanchez has to offer. He can be frustrating, flashing dominating raw stuff at times but struggling to find the strike zone at others.
