Blue Jays’ Sanchez leaves game with blister on throwing hand

Aaron Sanchez walked and hit a batter in the fourth inning for the Blue Jays against the White Sox, with manager Charlie Montoyo seeming to indicate that Sanchez has a blister or something wrong with his finger.

This isn’t what Toronto Blue Jays fans like hearing.

Aaron Sanchez was forced to leave Friday’s game against the Chicago White Sox with a finger ailment.

With the Blue Jays leading 9-2 in the top of the fourth inning, Sanchez hit James McCann with a pitch then threw a wild pitch that advanced McCann to second base before walking Nicky Delmonico.

With Delmonico on first, Blue Jays trainer Nikki Huffman and manager Charlie Montoyo walked to the mound and Sanchez was replaced by Sam Gaviglio.

The exact nature of what ails Sanchez wasn’t immediately known but the team has since confirmed Sanchez is dealing with a right middle-finger blister.

As Blue Jays fans know all too well, Sanchez has dealt with various finger issues in each of the past three seasons.
