We figured this yesterday, but Aaron Sanchez is going back on the 10-day DL with the split nail on his middle finger. I thought there might be a chance they would just glue it together and hope he’s ok for his next start but no.

I’m hoping this doesn’t become something that ruins his whole season. Al Leiter had blister problems for a few seasons.

Danny Barnes comes up again. Danny has pitched 4.2 innings for the Jays, over 4 appearances, allowing 3 hits, 1 walk with 3 strikeouts. He hasn’t allowed an earned run yet. In Buffalo, he has pitched 6 innings, allowed 2 earned, 6 hits, no walks with 8 strikeouts. We can use a fresh arm in the pen, after the bullpen pitched 8 innings yesterday.

I’m hoping Aaron will only miss the 10 days. I feel bad for him. I’m sure he was looking forward to building on his great 2016 season.
