Blue Jays Bring Back Former All-Star & Cy-Young Candidate After 5 Seasons

The Toronto Blue Jays have made an interesting move by bringing back a familiar face to their roster, reuniting with none other than Aaron Sanchez after five seasons.

Selected 34th overall in the 2010 draft by the Blue Jays, Sanchez had previously been a key figure during the team's playoff runs in 2015 and 2016.

Sanchez's history with the Blue Jays adds a layer of nostalgia and anticipation to the team's current lineup. His remarkable talent on the mound, including leading the American League in ERA in 2016, and posting a 2.86 ERA in his first three MLB seasons with Toronto was very impressive.

Despite setbacks due to injuries and inconsistent performance in recent years, the Blue Jays are banking on Sanchez's familiarity with the organization and his past success to reignite his career and provide valuable depth to their rotation.

Unfortunately, the 31-year-old has dealt with many injuries over his career and is nowhere close to the pitcher he used to be, holding an ugly 5.64 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, with 182 strikeouts across 226.2 innings and 51 appearances since leaving the Blue Jays.
