Gary Sanchez went 2-for-3 and slugged a clutch, game-tying home run during Wednesday's win over the Mariners.
He victimized former Rays' closer Alex Colome for a two-run homer that tied the game at five apiece in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Yankees went on to win on a Giancarlo Stanton bomb in the ninth. Sanchez has struggled massively in the batting average department but is filling box scores in other ways. The catcher has a .197/.297/.448 slash line with 14 homers, 41 RBI and 36 runs scored in 60 games. When his unlucky .199 BABIP normalizes it will give his batting average a nice boost.

Gary Sanchez blasted his 13th home run of the season as the Yankees topped the Rays on Saturday afternoon in New York.

Sanchez went back-to-back with teammate Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth inning, with the catcher's shot increasing the Bombers' lead to 4-0. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon and he also struck out twice. While the power production has been nice, with 13 homers and 39 RBI, Sanchez is now hitting just .190/.293/.438 for the season.

Gary Sanchez delivered a bases-clearing double in Friday’s win over the Rays.

It was his only hit in four at-bats on Friday, but it was a big one, providing some valuable cushion in the eighth inning. Johnny Field attempted a diving catch on the play, but he came up empty-handed and the ball bounced to the right field wall. With the way Sanchez has been struggling, he’ll take it any way he can get it. He didn’t have an RBI this month coming into Friday’s action. Sanchez has disappointed with a .189/.294/.427 batting line this year, but obviously there’s every reason for fantasy owners to be patient here.

Gary Sanchez is back in the Yankees' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Rays.

Sanchez got two games off to rest his mind and body. He has batted just .075/.197/.094 with zero home runs over his last 61 plate appearances, but the 25-year-old can certainly get it going in a hurry. He is starting at catcher and hitting cleanup Thursday versus Tampa Bay left-hander Blake Snell.

Gary Sanchez will also be held out of the Yankees' starting lineup on Wednesday.

Sanchez is not starting Tuesday and Austin Romine has become the personal catcher to Sonny Gray, who is due to start Wednesday's game against the Nationals. Sanchez has batted just .075/.197/.094 with zero home runs over his last 61 plate appearances. He told reporters Tuesday that his struggles have nothing to do with his calf, which was a problem off and on in May. But manager Aaron Boone characterized Sanchez as "banged up."
Jun 12 - 4:15 PM

Gary Sanchez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Sanchez is in a rough 4-for-53 (.075) slide at the plate, so he could probably use at least one day to clear his head. Austin Romine is usually paired up with Wednesday's starter Sonny Gray, so we could be talking about a couple of days off.
Jun 12 - 3:35 PM

Gary Sanchez is out of the Yankees' starting lineup for the first half of Monday's doubleheader in Detroit.

Austin Romine will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Tigers right-hander Drew VerHagen. Sanchez should start behind the plate in the second game.
Jun 4 - 10:21 AM

Gary Sanchez is out of the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Jun 1 - 4:19 PM

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup Thursday against the Orioles.

Sanchez has been ice cold at the plate, going 2-for-24 with eight strikeouts over his last eight games. Austin Romine will catch for Sonny Gray and bat eighth. Sanchez has hit just .222 this month, which is actually slightly above his season average (.211). The 25-year-old should right the ship at some point, but so far, he's been a massive disappointment.
May 31 - 4:17 PM

Gary Sanchez had a two-RBI single and reached base twice Wednesday versus the Astros.

Sanchez's base knock with two outs in the fifth inning off of Dallas Keuchel plated two runs and put the Yankees ahead for good as it turned out. The slugging catcher had been hitless over his last four games and still has just two hits over the last week.
May 30 - 9:54 PM

Gary Sanchez (calf) went 1-for-3 and also drew a walk in his return to the Yankees' lineup on Friday.

May 26 - 8:29 AM

Gary Sanchez (calf) struck out as a pinch-hitter Wednesday night against the Rangers.

Sanchez was held out of the Yankees' starting lineup after making an early exit from Tuesday's game with cramping in his calf. He should be ready for Friday night's series opener against the Angels after Thursday's scheduled team off day. The 25-year-old catcher has an .873 OPS with 12 homers and 33 RBI in 42 games this season.
May 24 - 8:17 AM

Gary Sanchez (calf) is not in the Yankees' lineup Wednesday.

Sanchez departed Tuesday's game with a calf cramp. He could be ready to go Friday after Thursday's off day. Austin Romine is catching Wednesday.
May 23 - 4:03 PM

Gary Sanchez made an early exit from Tuesday's game against the Rangers due to cramping in his calf.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters after the game that it's nothing serious, though Sanchez may need a day off. He was 0-for-1 with two walks before exiting in the sixth inning. The 25-year-old catcher is slashing .230/.331/.547 with 12 home runs and 33 RBI in 41 games this season.
May 22 - 11:27 PM

Gary Sanchez went 4-for-5 with two solo home runs, an RBI double and three total RBI in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Royals.

Sanchez has had some big hits for the Yankees this season, but he's also been hovering just above the Mendoza line for most of the year. He hit the ball hard (with nothing to show for it) on Friday, though, then came out and ripped the Royals on Saturday. He got his night started with an RBI double off Danny Duffy in the first inning and then it was off to the races. He saved his home run balls for late, swatting those solo shots in the seventh and ninth innings. Sanchez raised his average from .204 to .225 with his hit barrage. If this presages a tear at the plate, the rest of the American League had best be afraid. Even with his struggles to find a level of consistency, Sanchez has already hit 12 home runs and driven in 33 runs in 39 games this year.
