Weekly Check In: Gary Sanchez

Gary Sanchez, the Yankees catcher that took the minor leagues and the Arizona Fall League by storm only to fall short in a spring training competition. Gary Sanchez, the man that made Yankees GM Brian Cashman confident about trading backup catcher John Ryan Murphy to the Minnesota Twins for backup outfielder Aaron Hicks. Gary Sanchez, the subject of our latest weekly check in post here on the blog.

Gary Sanchez had a solid season in Double-A last season which led New York to call him up to Triple-A towards the end of the 2015 campaign. Sanchez was called up after an injury to Austin Romine occurred and he was thought to simply be a warm body in Scranton until his bat took off and took off in a big way. Sanchez earned a September call up last season and picked up his first MLB hit before heading to Arizona with the Surprise Saguaros to continue his torrid hitting.

Sanchez started spring slow and headed back down to Triple-A to begin the season but he will be back, he has a reserved front seat in the Scranton Shuttle, but until then we will check in with him every Wednesday morning. Starting now, enjoy.
