Aaron Sanchez (blister) expects to begin throwing off a mound in the next couple of days.

Sanchez will throw his final round of long toss on Tuesday before advancing his rehab into mound work. He'll travel with the Blue Jays to Texas next week before heading out on a minor league rehab assignment. It's possible he could be back in Toronto's rotation by the end of June, but the clock is ticking.

Aaron Sanchez (blister) played catch Monday.

It's the first time he's thrown since a recurrence of his blister issue sent him to the disabled list on May 19. Assuming the blister is healed, Sanchez shouldn't need too long getting up to speed. Still, he figures to be a couple weeks away from rejoining the Blue Jays' rotation.
Jun 5 - 6:29 PM

Aaron Sanchez (blister) is expected to resume throwing in the next couple days.

The Blue Jays shut Sanchez down for a couple weeks after he had a recurrence of the blister issue on his right middle finger that sent him back to the disabled list. He shouldn't need too much time to be build back up before rejoining the Toronto rotation, but it still figures to be a couple weeks before he's activated.
Jun 2 - 4:22 PM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) has not resumed throwing.

Sanchez landed on the disabled list over the weekend with a laceration (or blister) on his right middle finger. He told reporters Tuesday that he's frustrated by the lingering blister issues but will allow this one to fully heal before ramping up his rehab. It sounds like he'll be out for much longer than 10 days.
May 23 - 4:49 PM

Blue Jays placed RHP Aaron Sanchez on the 10-day disabled list with a middle finger laceration.

He had another blister pop up on his middle finger while pitching Friday against Baltimore. Sanchez has fared well when healthy (3.33 ERA in five starts) but this is already his third DL stint of the season. The Blue Jays' rotation is in rough shape with Sanchez, J.A. Happ (elbow) and Francisco Liriano (shoulder) all on the disabled list.
May 20 - 4:46 PM

Aaron Sanchez logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits over six innings.

The right-hander fanned four while walking two on the night. He cruised into the sixth inning with a 3-1 lead before Welington Castillo belted a game-tying two-run homer. Still winless on the season, Sanchez will carry a 3.33 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into Friday's matchup against the Rangers.
May 20 - 12:14 AM

Aaron Sanchez allowed just one unearned run over five innings Sunday versus the Mariners.

Sanchez was left with a no-decision because the Jays didn't take the lead for good until Kevin Pillar's walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Sanchez struck out four, walked two, and gave up five hits in his first start off the disabled list. He dropped his ERA from 4.05 to 3.44. A road date with the Orioles is next.
May 14 - 4:38 PM

Blue Jays activated RHP Aaron Sanchez from the 10-day disabled list.

The Jays will welcome Sanchez back into their rotation Sunday against the Mariners. The righty has made just one start in the majors over the last month due to a cracked fingernail, and he left that outing after one inning. Hopefully it's behind him now.
May 14 - 10:30 AM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) threw 60 pitches in an extended bullpen session Tuesday.

If he feels no abnormal discomfort on Wednesday, the right-hander should be cleared to return to the Blue Jays' starting rotation Sunday versus the Mariners. Sanchez has been on the disabled list since May 1 because of a split nail on his right middle finger.
May 9 - 4:26 PM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) threw a successful 33-pitch bullpen session Sunday.

Sanchez was able to throw all of his pitches and didn't have any issues with his cracked fingernail. He'll make a rehab start with the GCL Blue Jays on Tuesday before rejoining the Toronto rotation next weekend if all goes well.
May 7 - 11:39 AM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) could rejoin the Blue Jays' rotation as soon as next weekend.

Sanchez won't pitch in a rehab game this weekend as initially hoped, but he'll throw a bullpen session Sunday and then make a rehab start with the GCL Blue Jays on Tuesday if all goes well. Assuming he doesn't have a setback, that could be the only rehab outing he needs.
May 5 - 4:40 PM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) could make a minor league rehab start this weekend.

Sanchez returned to the disabled list on Monday after he split the fingernail on his right middle finger during his ultimately brief start on Sunday. The Blue Jays want to make sure he's fully healed before bringing him back, but he's not expected to require an extended absence.
May 2 - 9:58 AM

Blue Jays placed RHP Aaron Sanchez on the 10-day disabled list with a split nail on his right middle finger.

Sanchez's return from the disabled list lasted just one inning on Sunday before the issue resurfaced. He's not expected to miss significant time, but the Blue Jays will have to hope that some more rest finally gets him over the hump.
