Blue Jays starter Sanchez to re­sume throw­ing this week

Waterloo Region Record - - SPORTS -

TORONTO — Toronto Blue Jays right-han­der Aaron Sanchez is sched­uled to re­sume throw­ing this week, al­most three months af­ter his 2017 Ma­jor League Base­ball sea­son ended pre­ma­turely be­cause of a sprained ten­don and nag­ging blis­ter on his mid­dle fin­ger. Sanchez went 15-2 with an Amer­i­can League-best 3.00 ERA and was a first-time al­ls­tar in 2016. The blis­ter is­sue lim­ited him to eight starts in ’17 and led to four stints on the dis­abled list. Sanchez didn’t pitch af­ter July 19. He fin­ished 1-3 with a 4.25 ERA. Gen­eral man­ager Ross Atkins also said short­stop Troy Tu­low­itzki, who was di­ag­nosed with sea­so­nend­ing lig­a­ment dam­age to his right an­kle in late July, should be at full strength by Jan­uary. Tu­low­itzki has missed at least 30 games in six straight sea­sons.
