In his second start of the young season, top ranked Blue Jays prospect righthander Aaron Sanchez faced one batter over the minimum over the first four innings, enroute to an impressive five inning, no-hit performance against the Tampa Yankees in Florida State League play on Thursday.
Sanchez walked a pair and struck out three, and recorded 9 groundball outs. Reports are that he sat at 93-95 with his fastball, and touched 98. As in his last start, the high (9:1) groundball/flyball ratio indicates that Sanchez again was able to pound the strike zone down low.
Sanchez did not figure in the decision.
