Report: Blue Jays to call up Aaron Sanchez, Ryan Goins

Tuesday July 22nd, 2014

Aaron Sanchez and Ryan Goins will be called up by the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet. Goins' stay with the team could be a brief one as he's expected to replace Steve Tolleson, who will be taking paternity leave. 

Sanchez, a pitcher, was ranked the Blue Jays' No. 1 prospect by entering 2013, and will be making his MLB debut upon his first in-game action. Primarily a starter in the minor leagues, he was recently moved to the bullpen at Triple-A with the hope that it could soon allow him to join Toronto's pen. 

Sanchez has thrown 100 combined innings on the year between Double-A and Triple-A. The 22-year-old has a 3.95 ERA and 1.445 WHIP to go along with a 3-7 record in 20 starts.
