Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez returns from DL to start against the Rays

Only hours after being activated off the disabled list, Toronto Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez left his start against the Tampa Bay Rays after only one inning pitched and 13 pitches thrown with a split nail on his right middle finger.

The Toronto Blue Jays have a chance to win a series for the first time this season Sunday when they play the Tampa Bay Rays at the Rogers Centre. Sanchez didn't come out for the second inning, but instead was relieved by Ryan Tepera, who wound up allowing a single hit and striking out five opposing batters over 3.1 innings in relief. He was put on the disabled list with the blister and on April 18 had a procedure to remove part of the nail of the finger. He threw a bullpen session Friday, his first without a bandage on his finger, and reported no problems.

"We're certainly going to be cautious with him", Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said.

"I would expect there's got to be some kind of suspension the way they handle things now", Gibbons said after the game.

"It was tough for me to have to put these guys through a situation like that, but it was one of those things that we didn't know this was going to happen", Sanchez said. I either throw it way too high or it gets in the zone. Archer said there wasn't.

The two teams will square off at 1:07 EST (you have to love those extra two minutes our friends north of the border have for their own anthem), and it will be a battle of top-tier pitchers: Chris Archer for the Rays and Aaron Sanchez for the Jays.

The pitch prompted home plate umpire Jim Wolf to issue warnings to both benches. I'm hoping the blister problem is behind him.

Tampa Bay broke a scoreless tie in the eighth when Morrison scored on Daniel Robertson's bunt. The question becomes, was this pitch retaliation for the pitch that hit Steven Souza Jr.in the hand on Saturday afternoon?

The Toronto Blue Jays have suffered through a slow start to the season but are fortunate to have plenty of time to regroup. Ezequiel Carrera followed with an infield single, making it 3-1. It was Bautista's 1,000th as a Blue Jay. Even when healthy, control issues have spoiled some of his more dominant outings, doubling his walk rate per nine innings from the 2.2 BB/9 mark he posted during his rookie season in 2016.

Blue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (0-1, 2.70) starts the opener of a three-game series against the New York Yankees. Odorizzi (1-1, 4.15 ERA) will face Marlins LHP Wei-Yin Chen (2-1, 4.71 ERA) in the opener of a four-game series at Miami.
