Blue Jays promote top pitching prospect Sanchez

TORONTO – The Blue Jays selected top pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo in a flurry of roster moves yesterday.

As well as promoting the right-handed Sanchez, Toronto also recalled infielder Ryan Goins and selected right-hander Esmil Rogers.

A first-round pick in the 2010 draft, Sanchez started the season with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats, where he was 3-4 with a 3.82 ERA in 14 starts.

He went 0-3 with a 4.19 ERA in eight games at Buffalo, where his final two appearances came out of the bullpen in preparation for a relief role in the majors.

To make room on the roster, the Blue Jays designated left-hander Brad Mills for assignment and optioned catcher Erik Kratz and outfielder Darin Mastroianni to Buffalo.
