However, the Blue Jays, with injuries decimating their rotation, have an opening that Jackson can fill.

His lone start against Toronto came past year, and the righty left without a decision after yielding five runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings before the White Sox rallied for a 9-5 home victory.

"I was really impressed [with Sanchez]", Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo told the Toronto Globe and Mail.

"It was about making adjustments and to have a better approach at the plate, stop chasing bad pitches and stuff", Montoyo said of the objective of the hitters meeting. "He minimized damage in the first inning and started throwing strikes and getting people out early in the count".

Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez regroups after the White Sox's Tim Anderson rounds the bases after a three-run homer in the fourth inning on Sunday.

Four of Toronto's first seven batters got hits, including three of the first four, but Giolito allowed just two batters to reach after the first.

"I like it when pitchers get upset when I take them out", he said.

Rangers starter Adrian Sampson gave up nine hits and five earned runs in the loss to the Astros.

Sanchez (3-4) struck out five in a row over the first two innings, giving up nine hits and a pair of walks over six innings of work in his third straight loss. "Different ball game if those guys aren't on when they hit the homer". "I don't want them to be happy or hear 'please take me out, '" Montoyo said about the reaction from Stroman.

Fighter McGregor settles with fan, charges dropped
Court documents say the prosecutor made several attempts to contact British complainant Ahmed Abdirzak "without much luck". McGregor was initially released on $12,500 bond and is scheduled to return to court for an arraignment on April 10.

He did not factor in the decision against the Blue Jays on July 28, when he allowed five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.

Anderson, who has developed a reputation for post-homer celebrations, said he wanted to flip his bat after going deep against Toronto in this series but didn't after connecting off Sanchez.

Rowdy Tellez had an RBI single in the first inning.

Lucas Giolito (4-1) was solid over seven innings.

Sanchez, who was coming off a season-high seven-inning outing against the Twins, tossed a season-high 11 strikeouts, almost matching his career-high of 12 Ks in 2016, but came apart in the fourth as he fell to 3-4 this season.

In the eighth inning, Tilson hit a two-run double for a 6-1 Chicago lead. Garcia went hard into the centre-field wall when fielding a Justin Smoak liner.

There was a lot to like about the right-hander's performance at the Rogers Centre.

Edwin Jackson was acquired by Toronto from Oakland for $30,000 on Saturday and would set a record by pitching for 14 major league teams when he makes his Blue Jays debut.
