Weekly Check In: Gary Sanchez

The Year of the Prospects for the New York Yankees has definitely been the 2015 season with many of the team's prospects either being promoted, having breakout seasons or making their Major League debut's. Gary Sanchez was once thought of as the premier blue chip prospect in the Yankees system before GM Brian Cashman put all his focus on drafting, signing and developing prospects but that speaks more to the strength of the Yankees system and less of how far Mr. Sanchez has fallen as a prospect and as a catcher.

Sanchez is having a breakout season in 2015 and has made the most of every single opportunity he was given this season. Sanchez was only called up to Triple-A after an Austin Romine injury forced him into the fold. Sanchez has hit so well in Scranton/Wilkes Barre that the Yankees organization could not justify sending him back down when Romine recovered. Now Sanchez finds himself red hot and knocking on the door of Yankee Stadium.

Sanchez took the opportunity created from an injury to reach Triple-A and he is one more injury away from bringing those talents to Yankee Stadium.
