Bisons announce several roster moves; top prospect joins Herd

The Buffalo Bisons on Thursday announced that RHP Aaron Sanchez and OF Melky Mesa have been promoted to the club from Double-A New Hampshire.
The Blue Jays also announced that they have released LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith and traded OF Matt Tuiasosopo to the Chicago White Sox for cash considerations. OF Kenny Wilson and RHP Gregory Infante have also been shipped to Double-A New Hampshire.
Sanchez, 21, is rated by Baseball America as the #1 prospect in the Blue Jays system. In 14 starts for New Hampshire, the righty is 3-4 with a 4.82 ERA with 57 strikeouts to only 52 hits allowed in 66 innings of work. Sanchez has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his 14 starts. He struck out seven in each of his last two appearances with the Fisher Cats.
Sanchez was the Blue Jays first round draft pick (34th overall) in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft. He went 4-5 with a 3.34 ERA in 22 games and 20 starts for Single-A Dunedin last season.
Sanchez is scheduled to make his Triple-A and Bisons debut on Saturday, June 14, as Buffalo takes on the Mud Hens in Toledo at 7 p.m.
