Game 2: Aaron Sanchez (4-4, 3.98 ERA) vs Kyle Gibson (4-3, 2.72 ERA)

There was a while there where Blue Jays fans were wondering if Sanchez might have needed a bit more time in AAA (A la Daniel Norris). Well aside from the 5 run blip against Baltimore, Sanchez hasn’t been too bad…if you take out the walks. Lately, he is doing just that too! Sanchez seems to slowly gaining his command of his fastball and has started to get a little further into games thanks to a lower pitch count….derived from the afore mentioned lessening of the walks. Next up would be to get his hits per inning under 1 consistently. His WHIP is still not great (1.52) but he is trending in the right direction. Look for his ERA to keep dropping as the season goes on and his confidence grows.
