DUNEDIN, Fla. — Aaron Sanchez says there are “no hard feelings” after the Toronto Blue Jays renewed his contract for the minimum salary of $535,000 in the major leagues and $304,444 in the unlikely event he is sent to the minors.

Sanchez went 15-2 with a 3.00 ERA last year, his first full season as a starting pitcher.

Toronto offered a modest increase above the minimum based on the team’s formula, which was rejected by Sanchez and his agent, Scott Boras.

“It’s something that we didn’t agree on,” Sanchez said Thursday, when he gave up three runs and four hits in 21/3 innings against the New York Yankees.

“They said there’s a plan in place for quite some time. I’m just here to worry about getting better and helping this team. That’s always been my mindset and I think that will never change.”

Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons feels Sanchez is “just scratching the surface” when it comes to mound success.

 Reliever T.J. House is slowly increasing his physical activity, almost a week after he was hit on the head by a line drive during a spring-training game.

House was cleared to run on a treadmill for five minutes Thursday.

RED SOX 4, PIRATES 3: Chris Sale allowed three runs on seven hits over four innings, but Boston recovered to beat Pittsburgh at Fort Myers, Florida.

Marco Hernandez had two singles for Boston, and Brock Holt, Josh Rutledge and Jose Rosario tripled.

Sale, who pitched four scoreless innings against the Rays last Saturday – inducing seven groundball outs and striking out five – struck out three and walked none.

Six of the seven hits he allowed were singles.

YANKEES: Manager Joe Girardi said the team added former Los Angeles Angels closer Ernesto Frieri to the spring-training roster.

Frieri pitched for Colombia in the World Baseball Classic.

Frieri, 31, had 37 saves for the Angels in 2013. The right-hander last pitched in the majors with Tampa Bay in 2015.

NATIONALS: The NL Cy Young Award winner, Max Scherzer, probably will miss Washington’s opener April 3 against Miami because of a stress fracture in his right ring finger.
