Weekly Check In: Gary Sanchez

As Gary Sanchez waits to represent the New York Yankees and Team World in the MLB All Star Game's Futures Game "El Gary Sanchez" has been biding his time hitting home runs for the Trenton Thunder. Sanchez hit his 10th home run of the season over the weekend which is great for a Double-A catcher and shows how far his offense is finally coming along. Sanchez may never hit for .300 or higher in the minor leagues or the major leagues, although he is still pretty young for Double-A, but if he can hit 10-20 home runs and draw his walks as he does in the minors he will be fine.

To pull a bit of a "Kevin Millar" I can say that Sanchez has shown a little bit of sneaky speed this season with his five stolen bases and no caught stealing which gives him hope for the future. The Yankees don't steal a ton of bases as a team, not even with their speedy players like Brett Gardner, but if Sanchez can at least stay away from being a base running liability he should be fine.
