Should Aaron Sanchez Have an Extended Break?

Should Aaron Sanchez Have an Extended Break?

Severino has thrown at least seven innings in three consecutive starts.

Gibbons called in to "Blue Jays Talk", the team's postgame show as "John from Toronto" and wanted to speak with host Mike Wilner about starting Luke Maile over Russell Martin, a move Wilner questioned.

NOTES: Toronto RHP Aaron Sanchez (right middle finger blister) was placed on the disabled list for the second time this season. He underwent surgery on his problematic finger to remove about a quarter of the nail, supposedly relieving pressure from his finger, preventing the redevelopment of a blister.

Sanchez had only just been activated from the DL to start on Sunday.

The Jays are coming off a pair wins over Tampa Bay Rays. Per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, MLB officials are reviewing the incident with the potential of suspension.

"We need to make sure he's fully healed", manager John Gibbons said. "It's always important to come in here and play good because it sets a statement, not only with them, but for the rest of the division". "You've got like two minutes".

"I've also seen him have balls thrown at him and he answers back with a big home run, too". Plate umpire Jim Wolf warned both dugouts. "Since (Wolf) issued a warning, maybe he felt something wasn't right". I'd be disappointed if they didn't.

White House readying order to quit NAFTA
Is the USA headed for a trade war with Canada? Canadian and Mexican officials say they are already ready to renegotiate. Trump in recent weeks has stepped up his rhetoric vowing to terminate the agreement altogether.

Still missing injured stars Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki, the Blue Jays kept up their success against the Yankees, beating them for the 11th time in the last 16 meetings and outscoring them 82-44 in that span.

Estrada, 2-0 with a 3.12 ERA in four starts against the Yankees a year ago, allowed one run and seven hits in seven innings. He didn't walk a batter.

CINCINNATI - Billy Hamilton hit an RBI double in the 10th inning to lift Cincinnati over Pittsburgh. Ellsbury, running at full speed, made the catch but hit the wall hard with his left elbow.

Travis Shaw and Jonathan Villar each hit a tape-measure home run, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-5 in 10 innings.

Backed by seven strong from Estrada, the Toronto Blue Jays win their third straight game, and take the series.

Even struggling Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista - who entered Monday's game with a.178/.309/.244 slash line and one home run - transformed into his usual self, going 2-for-4 with a 425-foot two-run home run into the visitors' bullpen in the seventh inning. The ever-dominant Masahiro Tanaka starts for the Yankees.
