MILWAUKEE - In the disappointment that is becoming the Blue Jays season there have been some rays of sunshine, glimmers of hope for the not-too-distant future.

Marcus Stroman is one for sure and so too is Aaron Sanchez.

Stroman has been top-notch in the majority of his starts while Sanchez, due to an innings limitation, is up with the Jays as a member of their bullpen.

Next year he will be near the top of the rotation and in his nine relief appearances Jays fans can see for themselves what all the excitement has been about since the right-hander was a first-round supplemental pick in 2010.

In those nine appearances, Sanchez has allowed six hits and three runs in 15 innings, walking all of two and striking out 12 while holding the opposition to a .125 average. His ERA is 1.80.

He is proving to be everything the Jays expected he would become.
