Aaron Sanchez Scouting Report
It’s been another injury plagued season for Aaron Sanchez. At one time, he looked like the next ace of the Blue Jays rotation, but he has struggled with injuries the past few seasons. He just returned from the 60-day DL a couple of weeks ago and has made two starts since being activated for the Blue Jays, generating poor results in both outings.
His latest start came on the 31st against the Miami Marlins where he allowed five runs on eight hits, while he walked three and struck out two over 4 1⁄3 innings pitched.
His repertoire in 2018, per Brooks Baseball
In 2018, he has relied primarily on his Sinker (94mph), Fourseam Fastball (95mph) and Change (89mph), also mixing in a Curve (80mph).
His sinker has well above average velo and has slight armside run. His fourseam fastball generates a high number of swings & misses compared to other pitchers’ fourseamers, results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ fourseamers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo. His change is thrown extremely hard, has an obvious armside fade, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ changeups and has some natural sink to it. His curve has sweeping glove-side movement, has a sharp downward bite and results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers’ curves.
