Sanchez will stretch out as a starter this spring, and his path to opening the year as the Blue Jays' closer may hinge on the performance of the team's rotation candidates, the Toronto Globe & Mail reports. "As we sit here today, Sanchez will be stretched out (to be a starter)," Toronto general manager Alex Anthopoulos said in a recent interview. "That being said, there's a scenario that he ends up in the bullpen, depending on how Estrada throws the ball, how Daniel Norris throws the ball."

2015

2014

Sanchez spent nearly all of 2013 at High-A Dunedin, finishing with a 3.34 ERA, 7.8 K/9, and 4.2 BB/9 over 83.1 innings, as a shoulder injury cost him part of the season. The walk rate, while still not very good, reflects improved control compared to 2011 and 2012. Meanwhile, Sanchez couldn't carry over his strikeout totals to the next level, after posting a 9.7 K/9 for Low-A Lansing in 2012. Poised to open 2014 at Double-A New Hampshire, Sanchez is considered a potential frontline starter for the Jays down the line, but it would be encouraging to see him miss bats at an elevated clip again in the Eastern League this season.

2013

Sanchez spent most of the 2012 season working as a starter at Low-A Lansing, where lapses with control (5.1 BB/9) offset an impressive ability to miss bats (9.7 K/9) and record a large number of outs on the ground (2.22 G/F). If his secondary pitches don't develop as expected, Sanchez possesses a big enough fastball to succeed with a transition toward a late-inning relief role. Still just 20 years old, the Jays can afford to give Sanchez plenty of time to hone his command in the lower levels of the minors, and it's possible that he will return to the Midwest League to start 2013 before getting his first exposure to High-A.

2012

The tall, lanky (6'4", 190) righty flashes plus-velocity with an easy delivery and many scouts believe he has a very high upside. He needs to wok on his control but the 18-year old held his own in 2011, striking out 56 batters in 54.1 innings between Rookie and Low-A.
