The Toronto Blue Jays have a hole to fill in their rotation in the wake of Marcus Stroman's season-ending injury.
Aaron Sanchez may be the leading candidate to fill the hole. He was expected to compete with Marco Estrada and Daniel Norris for the final two spots on the staff.
"Our plan for Sanchez was always the same," Alex Anthopoulos said. "I think it certainly gives him a better opportunity to start but we still have Estrada being stretched out, still have Norris being stretched out, still have the remainder of camp.
"I think we still continue down that path, but there's no doubt about it, there's another opportunity there with Stroman being down."
There had been a feeling around camp that Sanchez was headed for the bullpen once the season began.
