Blue Jays managing Sanchez’s innings by skipping rookie’s next scheduled start

TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays will be skipping Aaron Sanchez’s next scheduled start — Wednesday afternoon against the Miami Marlins — to manage the rookie right-hander’s innings.

The team confirmed the decision during Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins at Rogers Centre, adding that Wednesday’s starter would be announced after the game.

Sanchez is 5-4 with a 3.55 earned-run average. He has pitched 66 innings over 11 starts so far this season.

The 22-year-old threw a career-high eight innings last Friday in a win against the Houston Astros, giving up one earned run while not issuing a single walk.

Toronto used Todd Redmond as a spot starter last month to give the rest of rotation an extra day off.
