Sanchez is looking ahead to 2018 with confidence and excitement, Rob Longley of The Toronto Sun reports. "It's unfortunate I didn't get to pitch," Sanchez said. "I had an unbelievable year last year and there was a lot for me to build off of. I have to wait for a year, it's unfortunate, but life goes on. I'll be ready to go. I train to be ready to go. I look forward to it."
Happ ranks fifth among MLB starters this season in swinging-strike rate on four-seam fastballs (minimum 750 thrown), at 12.5 percent, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports. That rate more than doubles, to 27.3 percent, when Happ gets his four-seamer to the upper-third of the strike zone.
