Date:

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.

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.
May 1 - 3:21 PM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) is likely to be placed on the disabled list.

Sunday was his first start since having a minor procedure on April 18 to remove part of the nail on his finger. However, his return from the disabled list lasted just one inning after the issue resurfaced. He's planning to speak with the hand specialist who did the procedure on Monday. The Blue Jays have an off-day on Thursday and they are hoping to have J.A. Happ (elbow) the next time they need a fifth starter on May 9, so a return to the DL appears to be the most likely outcome. "I don't know, hopefully not," said Sanchez. "I've talked to other pitchers who have gotten this. I spoke to Syndergaard about his issue, split nail, kind of the same thing. I don't know. I hope not."
May 1 - 8:57 AM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that he expects Aaron Sanchez (finger) to be fine.

Gibbons confirmed that it was a cracked finger nail, and not a blister issue, that forced Sanchez to leave Sunday's start after only one inning. While he wouldn't commit to the right-hander making his next scheduled start, it doesn't sound as though he'll necessitate a trip to the disabled list.
Apr 30 - 4:34 PM

Aaron Sanchez left Sunday's start versus the Rays after just one inning after splitting the nail on his right middle finger again.

Sanchez was making his first start since returning from minor surgery to remove part of the nail from his finger. He's almost surely headed back to the disabled list, but the Blue Jays should have more on his status after the game.
Apr 30 - 1:27 PM

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

Sanchez will start on Sunday against the Rays. The young right-hander missed the last two weeks of action after undergoing minor surgery to remove part of the nail from his right middle finger. He'll be on a pitch limit in his first start back.
Apr 30 - 10:40 AM

Aaron Sanchez will return from the disabled list to start for the Blue Jays on Sunday against the Rays.

The right-hander made it through Friday's mound session without any issue and has been cleared to return. He has been sidelined since undergoing minor surgery on April 18 to remove part of the nail from his right middle finger. He'll be on a pitch limit in his first start back, so fantasy owners may want to wait and see a start before inserting him back into lineups.
Apr 29 - 11:03 AM

Aaron Sanchez (finger) is on track to return to the Blue Jays' rotation Sunday versus the Rays.

Sanchez made it through a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday without issue and he'll throw off the mound again Friday as his final tune-up before that Sunday start. The young right-hander underwent minor surgery on April 18 to remove part of the nail on his right middle finger. He can be plugged back into fantasy rotations right away.
