FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: AARON SANCHEZ EARNS ROTATION SPOT WITH JAYS

After a very impressive spring training where he registered a 1.35 ERA and struck out 19 batters in 20 innings pitched, the Toronto Blue Jays announced that Aaron Sanchez has claimed a spot in the team's starting rotation.  Gavin Floyd was also in the running for the spot but he now moves to the bullpen. 

Analysis:  Sleeper alert!  Sanchez should be picked up immediately in all leagues due to his power arm and knack for the strikeout.  The ballpark is beyond rough but Sanchez had a decent 0.88 HR/9 a year ago and as we said the arm is capable of firing fastballs somewhere in the upper-90's range. 
The one potentially giant negative though is an utter lack of control as Sanchez posted a very ugly 4.29 BB/9 in 2015 which has to be remedied in short order while pitching in the rough AL East.
