Blue Jays place J.P. Howell on 10-day DL, recall Dominic Leone

  Blue Jays place J.P. Howell on 10-day DL, recall Dominic Leone Hindered by a left shoulder strain in his previous outing, J.P. Howell landed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with Dominic Leone recalled from triple-A Buffalo to take his place. Howell faced four batters without recording an out in Friday’s 10-8 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, uncharacteristically having trouble finding the zone. A timeline for his return is uncertain but at his point the Blue Jays are optimistic it won’t be long. “Talking with him, he had a tough time on release and we’re just giving him a little bit of time to get back,” said pitching coach Pete Walker.

In a surprise move, the Blue Jays have optioned one of the American League ’s best starters, right-hander Aaron Sanchez , to Single-A Dunedin, reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet (Twitter link). 7 months ago. He prob won’t even show up in Dunedin.

When prepping for a start, Aaron Sanchez will review tape of the lineup he’s about to face, talk it over with teammates and the coaching staff, and fire up the ol’ Playstation.

The Toronto Blue Jays right-hander isn’t only on the cover of Sony’s MLB The Show 17, he’s also a big fan of the series and uses it from time to time to give him an edge in real-life baseball.

“It’s actually kind of funny. There’s hot zones, there’s cold zones. They do a really good job of showing what types of players are,” Sanchez said earlier this week. “So during the year if you’re hooked up to internet at your place it gives you a lineup of who’s playing that night, who’s pitching against who. If guys have made it to the big leagues and there’s new people up there with the updates it gives you the lineup that they think is gonna be out there that night and when they do that there’s times when I wake up in the morning and play two or three innings where I go through the lineup once to just kind of see what works here and try to use that to my advantage if I think of something that night during the real game.

  Sanchez happy to be back for Jays home opener Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez is happy to be home. While the 24-year-old grew up in Barstow, Calif., almost halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, he feels the love in Toronto. Especially around the home opener. The Jays (1-5) welcome Milwaukee (2-5) to the Rogers Centre on Tuesday to kick off the start of a nine-game homestand — Baltimore and Boston follow the Brewers — as baseball returns. Left-hander J.A. Happ, who went 20-4 last season with a 3.18 earned-run average, is slated to go against Wily Peralta (7-11 with a 4.86 ERA last year).For Sanchez, any time the word 'opening' comes into play in baseball, it's special.

There really isn’t much for Blue Jays news today. But there is this: Aaron Sanchez will be on the cover of The Show here in Canada. Sometimes the Jays front office seems absolutely tune deaf to how things sound to us fans. If there is a lot of interest, you would think that would be a great reason to do

“I wouldn’t say it’s something that I rely on, but it’s definitely something of a, I guess you could say, a cheat sheet.”

Released on March 28, MLB The Show 17 is the latest in Sony’s annual baseball simulation video game series. Sanchez was selected as the cover athlete for the Canadian version of the game this year, while Ken Griffey Jr. graces the cover in the United States.

“[Sony] asked me a question and asked me if I liked to play video games and I told them my Playstation does not miss a trip with me and when they found that out they asked if I’d like to be on the cover,” he said. “So I think it was kind of a no-brainer after that. It’s every kid’s dream to be on the cover of a baseball game and just to be on that is humbling.”

Blue Jays plan to activate Roberto Osuna before home opener

  Blue Jays plan to activate Roberto Osuna before home opener Roberto Osuna’s on target to be activated before the Toronto Blue Jays’ home opener, manager John Gibbons said Monday at the team’s off-day workout. Osuna threw a 24-pitch simulated game at Tropicana Field Saturday, an important step on his path back to the active roster. Barring an unexpected development, the 22-year-old closer will be available to make his season debut out of the bullpen against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday. “Unless something changes overnight he’ll be activated,” Gibbons said.

Aaron Jacob Sanchez (born July 1, 1992) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball ( MLB ). He was drafted by the Blue Jays in the first round of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft, and made his MLB debut on July 23, 2014.

In addition to sometimes using it as a pseudo-scouting report, Sanchez has used it as a little bit of an extra motivator.

“I had no input or say on what they did in terms of my attributes. When I did find out what I was and where I lacked I did let them know in a joking way that we need to clean that up. But it honestly actually gave me some goals to reach this year for me in terms of real life baseball so next year when it comes out we can get a higher rating.”
