2016

2015

Sanchez finally debuted his electric stuff with the Blue Jays in 2014, excelling in a late-inning role out of the bullpen. The 6-foot-4 righty started the season at Double-A New Hampshire, where the refrain about his poor control continued, as he walked 14 percent of the batters he faced in 66 innings. Sanchez was then promoted to Triple-A Buffalo for a five-week stretch and then made the jump to the majors in late July, where he worked exclusively as a reliever. The 22-year-old was fantastic out of the bullpen, posting a 1.09 ERA and 0.70 WHIP with 27 strikeouts in 33 innings. He also notched three saves, splitting time with Casey Janssen in the closer role down the stretch. Sanchezís dominance as a big-league reliever, and his struggles as a starter in the upper levels of the minors combine to lend credence to the idea that he profiles best as a dominant closer long term. To begin 2015, he'll likely get a look in the rotation following the loss of Marcus Stroman to a torn ACL in March, with the fallback option of moving back into the bullpen if he's unable to harness his control in the expanded role.

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.
