PORT CHARLOTTE, Florida – Aaron Sanchez was so impressive on Friday afternoon against the Rays big league line-up, he had Tampa Bays hitters giving him props to catcher Dioner Navarro. Authentic Jahleel Addae Jersey . "Theyve never seen him," said Navarro. "Theyve never faced him and they get this young, lanky, tall guy whos throwing cheese and hes got pretty good movement. I think his composure on the mound was pretty good, his demeanour was pretty good, his body language, everything around him was pretty good today." Sanchez played the role of top prospect, shutting out the Rays over five-and-a-third innings in Torontos 5-0 win. He allowed three hits, all singles, and walked three, but helped his cause be forcing three double-play balls. One each came off the bats of Evan Longoria and Wil Myers. Sanchez struck out two, his fastball was clocked consistently in the mid-90s and his patented curveball was sharp. "It was extremely impressive, theres no doubt about it," said pitching coach Pete Walker. "He came out throwing strikes. He was composed. Faced their line-up, Im sure close to their opening day line-up, faced all their big hitters and certainly handled them pretty well. Pounded the zone, got ahead of the hitters, didnt work from behind in the count, showed an explosive fastball and, like I said, a lot of poise and a lot of ground-ball outs." Watching Sanchez pitch on Saturday, its easy to fall in love with his stuff, his composure, and easy to forget about where he is in his career. The Blue Jays have taken great care, some would say too much care, since drafting him 34th-overall in 2010. Hes only 21, turns 22 on Canada Day, and hasnt thrown a pitch in pro ball above High-A Dunedin. Sanchez hasnt exceeded 100 innings in three pro seasons, although factoring in Arizona Fall League appearances, combined with his time in Dunedin, he tossed 109 2/3 last year. If the Blue Jays increase his innings load by 20 per cent this year, hed throw approximately 130. A 30 per cent increase and Sanchez would throw about 140 innings. He authored a 3.34 ERA in 22 appearances, 20 starts, for Dunedin in 2013. His strikeouts per nine innings dropped to 7.8, but that was by design. Hes worked to become a better ground ball pitcher, which was evidenced by the double play turns in Fridays game. Its tempting for a coaching staff that can see the future but knows another failed season likely means it wont be a part of it; a coaching staff which knows theres at least one glaring hole in the current composition of its starting rotation. "I guess it would be hard not to just from watching and laying eyes on him," said Walker of whether he thinks about Sanchez breaking camp. "But obviously we want to make sure hes ready when the time comes." Hes an affable young man, but also smart. Sanchez doesnt make much noise around the clubhouse; he knows his role as a young player. Hes the Blue Jays top pitching prospect but restricts the projection of swagger and confidence to his mound appearances. "Its good to get my feet wet," said Sanchez of his first big league camp. "Coming into camp, for me, it was to soak everything all in, learn from the veteran guys, just go out and have fun." "I think some of the intangible things that you try to look for in young players in an atmosphere that can be uncomfortable at times, you know, is he so reserved? Is he getting involved in the drills and some of the meetings? Hes handled himself very well and that says a lot about his character and who he is," said bench coach DeMarlo Hale, who served as manager on Friday. It remains to be seen whether Sanchez will throw again for the Blue Jays in spring training. Walker will sit down with manager John Gibbons and draw up a schedule. Sanchez likely starts his season at Double-A New Hampshire. A good showing there and its next stop, Buffalo. Or, maybe, Toronto. THE PIGGYBACK Theres been open musing in the press box about the idea of Dustin McGowan joining R.A. Dickey, Brandon Morrow, Mark Buehrle and Drew Hutchison in the starting rotation. Why not cap McGowan at four or five innings as he builds up arm strength and piggyback him with one of two long relievers, either Esmil Rogers or Todd Redmond? "Still trying to sort through it," said pitching coach Pete Walker when presented with the idea. "Obviously, theres still some time left in spring training. Guys are going to get the ball; get their opportunities to stand out right now. Obviously, Dustin looked great yesterday and Sanchez looked great today and the other guys, Redmond and Rogers, have thrown the ball well. Obviously, wed like to see [J.A.] Happ pitch well on the 25th and well continue to take a look at how it works out." Walker didnt have the opportunity to speak to McGowan before leaving for Port Charlotte, but said reports are the 31-year-old "felt fine" after throwing three scoreless innings against the Phillies on Thursday. TUIASOSOPOS NUMBERS General manager Alex Anthopoulos ist shy about scouring the waiver wire for players. On Thursday, he picked up Matt Tuiasosopo from the Diamondbacks. "Played well for the Tigers last year and we had good reports on him," said Anthopoulos in a statement. "He gives us a right-handed bat that gives us positional versatility. Obviously, there isnt a lot of time left but hell come in and compete for a spot." Time is of the essence and Tuiasosopo is going to need more of it than usual to join the ballclub. He was in Australia, where the Diamondbacks are opening their regular season with two games against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Its difficult to see, on the surface, where Tuiasosopo fits in. Hes a right-handed bat who got off to a strong start with the Tigers last season, hitting six of his seven home runs before the All-Star break, including four in a personal five-game span between June 18 and July 11. He can play the corner outfield positions, first base and third base in a pinch. "Youre talking about, maybe, from the right side where there could be an option there," said bench coach DeMarlo Hale. Tuiasosopo hasnt proven he can hit left-handers at the big league level. In 194 at-bats against lefties, Tuiasosopo has hit .196/.287/.345 with eight home runs. Against right-handers, his slash line is .221/.287/.368. Over his major league career, Tuiasosopo has struck out in 31.7 per cent of his big league at-bats. By comparison, while acknowledging the sample size is small, Moises Sierra hits left-handers at a .267/.327/.478 clip with four home runs. "Decisions havent been made, Im sure of that," said Hale. "I cant speak for Alex and Gibby, but it becomes added depth and well see what hes got over these next four or five days left of spring training.” Like Sierra, Tuiasosopo is out of options, meaning he would first have to pass through waivers before being assigned to the minor leagues. If the Blue Jays go with an eight-man bullpen to start the season, carrying both is out of the question. The back-up catcher, likely Erik Kratz, and Maicer Izturis must be accounted for, which leaves only one additional roster spot. Authentic Justin Jones Jersey . Neither striker Demba Ba nor Fernando Torres came close to scoring as Chelsea was left unsuccessfully appealing for penalties in this drab penultimate game of the season. "Our strikers are good strikers, no doubt about that, but players with some specific qualities," Mourinho said.

JOHNS, N.LONDON - Before the scramble to sign players in the January transfer window, theres a rush to fill managerial vacancies.Three clubs are making changes in the midst of the Premier League seasons busiest period, with all 20 teams in action on Thursday for the third time in a week.It had been a rare period of stability — the Premier League reached Christmas without a managerial casualty for the first time since 1995 — until Neil Warnock was fired by Crystal Palace on Saturday.With Palace in the relegation zone, that dismissal seemed to be only a matter of time. Perhaps more surprising is Alan Pardew swapping mid-table mediocrity at Newcastle for a relegation scrap at Palace, with the manager in negotiations on Tuesday to rejoin the club he played for in the 1980s.It is likely to create an unexpected vacancy at Newcastle. And the northeast club is searching for a candidate in the same managerial talent pool as West Bromwich Albion, which fired Alan Irvine on Monday after only six months in charge.If you dont get results, then clubs change managers now more regularly than they did before, said West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, whose team hosts West Brom on New Years Day. When it comes up to a transfer window as well, it looks like it has a major affect on owners.The manager may have proposed some players to bring in during the window and they may have taken the opinion that they would rather give that opportunity to a new manager. It seems that might be the case.Like Pardew at St. James Park, Allardyce faced calls from his own fans in the last year to quit. Not only could Newcastle fans see the back of Pardew, but the club could also receive more than $3 million in compensation from Palace if a deal can be done. Although owner Mike Ashley seems unlikely to spend on reinforcements in January for the 10th-place team.Allardyce would succeed Pardew as the Premier Leagues second longest-serving current manager. The determination by West Hams owners to stick by the manger they appointed in 20111 has been rewarded by Allardyce taking the team into the second half of the season in sixth place. Authentic Hayes Pullard III Jersey. Stability doesnt necessarily equal success. There is weariness among some Arsenal fans over the durability of Arsene Wenger, the leagues longest-serving current manager at 16 years-plus, over his failure to deliver the title since 2004. Wenger, though, will restore Arsenal to its accustomed place in the top four at Southamptons expense by beating the surprisingly high-flying south-coast club on Thursday.Here are some other things to watch:___PACESETTERSChelsea has Manchester Citys implosion against Burnley to thank for maintaining its three-point lead. Citys surprise draw came after Chelsea was held by Southampton on Sunday, providing a reminder that the destination of the trophy is far from certain.Chelsea is reunited with Tottenham at White Hart Lane less than month after sweeping to a 3-0 victory at home. Since then, Tottenham has gone five games unbeaten domestically, including Sundays 0-0 draw against Manchester United.We had some bad games last season and we had the feeling that we gave up a bit, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris said. We are improving. Defensively, we are stronger.___MANCHESTER RIVALSManchester Citys players must be more ruthless against Sunderland after squandering a 2-0 lead against Burnley to draw 2-2, a collapse which raised doubts about their ability to defend the title.We just have to be more clinical up front, City midfielder Samir Nasri said. We have to score. We have to kill the game sometimes.Another slip-up would give Manchester United an opportunity to make up some of the seven-point gap on its neighbours by winning at Stoke.___IN THE DROP ZONEThe three bottom teams all avoided losing on Sunday.For Leicester, there was a first win since September against Hull, but the last-place team next faces a resurgent Liverpool. Burnley follows up its unexpected draw at City with a trip to Newcastle, while Palace plays Aston Villa.
