Today was supposed to be The Return of The Sanchez, instead, it was The Return of The Blister. Aaron Sanchez pitched just one inning against the Rays and was pulled after inducing an inning-ending double play. He noticeably struggled with command and wasn’t using his breaking ball, suggesting this issue is certainly blister related.
Blue Jays calling it a "split nail" on the right middle finger for Aaron Sanchez— Arden Zwelling (@ArdenZwelling) April 30, 2017
Sanchez told me there have been 10 other MLB players who underwent same nail procedure to eliminate blister - w/success. Frustrating for him— Hazel Mae (@thehazelmae) April 30, 2017
So I guess it wasn’t the blister, but instead a ‘split nail’ that resulted in Sanchez having to leave today’s game. The split nail is on the same finger with the blister.
