Weekly Check In: Gary Sanchez

El Gary Sanchez was activated off the disabled list this week and was assigned to Triple-A to assist the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders in their chase for the Governor’s Cup. Sanchez battled with a hamstring injury a week before September call ups and has been on the disabled list ever since with the injury. Sanchez is apparently healthy enough to bat and run the bases a little but he’s not been cleared to play catcher as he has instead played the DH position. If Sanchez isn’t healthy enough or able to play catcher than it seems unlikely that New York would bring him up to the Major Leagues as a September call up when Scranton wraps up their postseason play.

New York has tied their own record for the most players to make their Major League debut’s in one season in 2015 and could break the over 100-year old record with one more debut. The only player currently on the 40 man roster that has not made his MLB debut is Sanchez so the stars have definitely aligned it’s now up to Yankees GM Brian Cashman to pull the trigger and break the record. Why wouldn’t you at this point? Nothing to lose bringing up Sanchez to sit on the bench and get into a blowout late, right?

Break the record, call up Sanchez.
