Five stages to watch in the 21-leg Tour de France, which starts on Saturday at Mont-Saint-Michel and ends on July 24 in Paris:---STAGE 1, July 2, 188 kilometers (117 miles) from Mont-Saint-Michel to Utah Beach (Sainte-Marie-du-Mont) in the Normandy region:The Mont-Saint-Michel, a World Heritage Benedictine abbey perched on a rock off the Normandy coast, will provide a picture-postcard start for the race as the Grand Depart returns to home roads after visits to Britain and the Netherlands in the last two years.The first stage ends at Utah Beach, where Allied troops landed on D-Day in 1944.Following the coastline for long stretches, wind could play a big role, with the possibility of splitting the peleton. In the end, though, sprinters are expected to vie for the stage win and the honor of wearing the first yellow jersey.Germanys Marcel Kittel and Britains Mark Cavendish are the pick of the bunch.---STAGE 5, July 6, 216 kilometers (134 miles) from Limoges to Le Lioran in the Massif Central:After the sprinters have the spotlight in the opening four legs, this should be the stage where the race really starts.Featuring five climbs in a constant up-and-down finish, including the 1,589-meter (5,213-foot) Pas de Peyrol, it will mark the first time that the Tour has gone above 1,500 meters this early in the race since the leg-breaking start in 1979, when there were three stages in the Pyrenees over the first four days.Look for overall contenders Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana and Alberto Contador to spring into action for the first time.The Tour wont be won here but it could be lost.---STAGE 8, July 9, 183 kilometers (114 miles) from Pau to Bagneres-de-Luchon in the Pyrenees:The most difficult stage on paper, featuring the legendary Col du Tourmalet plus three more serious climbs in quick succession -- the Hourquette dAncizan, the Val Louron-Azet and the Col de Peyresourde.After hours in the saddle, the leaders will be pleased to take on the high-speed descent from the Peyresourde into the finish in Luchon, which is not highly technical.Whoever holds the yellow jersey after this stage will have taken a major step toward overall victory.---STAGE 12, July 14, 184 kilometers (114 miles) from Montpellier to Mont Ventoux in the Provence region:French climbing specialists Romain Bardet and Thibaut Pinot surely have circled this stage for special attention. Besides containing one of the races most famous climbs, the stage will be held on Bastille Day.Defending champion Chris Froome was the stage winner when the Tour last scaled Ventouxs barren, 1,909-meter (6,263-foot) peak in 2013.Ventoux was also the site of an epic contest between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in 2000, and where British rider Tom Simpson died in 1967 after he used a lethal cocktail of amphetamines and alcohol.Heat is usually a factor on the grueling climb up Ventoux and there will be the added factor of wanting to keep something in reserve for the races first -- and longest -- time trial a day later.---STAGE 18, July 21, 17-kilometer individual time trial from Sallanches to Megeve in the Rhone-Alps region:Its the Tours first mountain time trial since the 2004 race against the clock up lAlpe dHuez.Besides the flat opening four kilometers (2 1/2 miles) and a short descent at the finish, its entirely uphill.While there will still be two more stages in the Alps, this leg could be decisive for overall victory.

TORONTO -- Aaron Sanchez was supposed to be in the Blue Jays bullpen by now. Instead, the All-Star right-hander will start against the Texas Rangers on Sunday night, hoping to pitch Toronto into the AL Championship Series.When the 24-year-old Sanchez cracked Torontos starting rotation after a solid performance in spring training, the team said it planned to move him to a relief role at some point to limit his workload. The thinking was a full season of starting would be too much for a pitcher whose previous career high was 133 1/3 innings, reached at three levels in 2014.We were all set that he was going to eventually end up in the bullpen, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said as both teams worked out Saturday for Game 3 of the AL Division Series. That was the plan in spring training.Those plans went out the window as Sanchez pitched like an ace, earned an All-Star berth, and led the AL with a 3.00 ERA.We thought it would be crazy to take him out of that role, Gibbons said. Hes been so good, one of the best pitchers in baseball.Sanchez got extra rest between starts over the final two months, even spending 10 days in the minor leagues, in order to stay fresh. Toronto also acquired left-hander Francisco Liriano at the trade deadline and briefly used a six-man rotation to spread the work out even more.Neither the extended rest, nor the 10 days he spent at Class A Dunedin, were any kind of issue to Sanchez.I knew we had something special with this club and I wanted to be a part of it, he said. To be here to pitch in a game like (Game 3), Im just blessed with the opportunity to go out there and compete.Sanchez hasnt pitched since allowing one run in seven innings to beat Boston on the final day of the regular season, a victory that ensured Toronto would host the AL wild-card game.Sanchez made one start against the Rangers this season, and it want his best. He allowed six earned runs, matching a season worst, and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings of a 7-6 loss on May 15. That game also featured a brawl between Rangers infielder Rougned Odor and Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista, an incident that happened after Sanchez had already left the game.With Texas facing ellimination after losing the first two games at home, Sanchez presents a tough test in an even tougher situation.dddddddddddd Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus said the key is to stay aggressive at the plate.Hes a power pitcher and we know hes going to try and establish himself and his pitch early, Andrus said. Dont let him get comfortable. When you face guys like him, the last thing you want is them to feel comfortable on the mound.Right-hander Colby Lewis, who is 4-1 with a 2.38 ERA in nine career postseason games, will start for the Rangers.He can definitely be our stopper, Rangers catcher Jonathan Lucroy said.Texas has not been swept in a playoff series since back-to-back ALDS losses to the New York Yankees in 1998 and 1999. Dating to 2015, the Rangers have lost five straight postseason games, all to Toronto.Theres no panic in this club, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said.Liriano, who has made two relief appearances this postseason, sustained a concussion when he was struck in the back of the head by Carlos Gomezs line drive in Torontos 5-3 win in Game 2 on Friday.Trainer George Poulis said Liriano felt good after undergoing tests Saturday but said there is no timetable for Lirianos return.The symptoms were very good, Poulis said. Were going to examine him each day and just go from there.Players who sustain a concussion must be cleared by Major League Baseball before returning.Liriano and Gomez were teammates in Minnesota and remain good friends. Gomez said he spoke to Liriano on the phone Friday night and was relieved to hear his friend was not seriously hurt.I slept better knowing he didnt have any problems, Gomez said, adding that he and Liriano had discussed going for dinner together on Saturday night.So, did Gomez plan on picking up the check after nailing his pal in the head?Were both rich, so it doesnt matter, he joked.Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis, who was scratched from Game 2 with a sore right knee, had an MRI Saturday morning. He is day-to-day with a bone bruise but has no structural damage, Poulis said.
