Gary Sanchez went 3-for-6 with two homers and four RBI as the Yankees crushed the Tigers 13-4 on Tuesday

It's funny; there hasn't been as much talk about Sanchez's defense while he's homered seven times and driven in 16 runs in his last 10 games. He's up to 25 homers for the season now. In 546 career at-bats (619 plate appearances) -- essentially a full season for a non-catcher -- he's amassed 45 homers and 111 RBI.

Gary Sanchez stayed hot on Friday by collecting a solo homer against the Red Sox.

Sanchez went 1-for-5 on the night. He’s batting .378 (14-for-37) with six homers and 13 RBI over his last 10 games. For a second straight year, he’s mashing in August.

Gary Sanchez hit a three-run homer and added a two-run single later, collecting five RBI in the Yankees' 7-5 win over the Mets on Thursday.

Sanchez took Mets starter Steven Matz deep in the first inning for the three-run jack, his 22nd of the year and his fourth in his last six games. He tacked on a two-RBI single in the fourth, running his RBI total to 64 this year. The 24-year-old was mired in a slump in late July and early August, but that's a thing of the past. Sanchez is slashing .277/.352/.526 overall.

Gary Sanchez continued to swing a hot bat Tuesday, slugging a solo homer and adding a single and a sac fly in a win over the Mets.

Sanchez's bomb off of Jacob deGrom was a no-doubter over the left-field wall and put the Yankees up 4-0 at the time. His sac fly in the eighth inning wound up being the winning run. The young catcher has now homered four times over his last seven contests and has piled up 11 hits during a seven-game hitting streak.

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in the Yankees' defeat of the Mets on Monday.

Sanchez singled in the second inning, hit a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, and launched a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. He now has 20 home runs and 57 RBI in 84 games this season, to go along with a cool .861 OPS. Despite the defensive issues, it's been a promising sophomore campaign for the 24-year-old catcher.

Gary Sanchez clubbed his 19th homer as part of a two-hit effort Saturday in the Yankees’ 10-5 loss to the Red Sox.

Sanchez staked the Yankees to a 2-0 advantage in the first inning by drilling a two-run shot off Red Sox lefty Drew Pomeranz. The opposite-field blast traveled an estimated 364 feet. Sanchez also chipped in with a fifth-inning double, though he was stranded at second base. The 24-year-old has been widely criticized for his poor play behind the plate but fantasy owners won’t lose sleep over it as long as he keeps hitting.

Gary Sanchez is absent from the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

Sanchez is hitting just .202/.245/.404 over his last 24 games, so he'll get a day to gather himself. Austin Romine is behind the plate.
Aug 6 - 10:56 AM

Gary Sanchez hit his 17th homer of the year in a loss to the Indians on Thursday.

Corey Kluber didn't make many mistakes on this night, but Sanchez got a hold of one and hit it out to the deepest part of the ballpark. It was the only run the Yankees would muster. Sanchez has been hot over his past nine games, hitting .323 (10-for-31) with three homers in that span. He's batting .271/.345/.500 with 52 RBI and 50 runs scored overall.

Gary Sanchez clubbed his 16th home run of the season as the Yankees topped the Rays in New York on Saturday afternoon.

Sanchez tagged Rays' starter Blake Snell for a solo shot that pulled the Bombers even at 2-2 in the fourth inning. He finished the afternoon 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing .270/.347/.493 with 16 bombs and 50 RBI on the season.
Jul 29 - 4:33 PM

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's win over the Rays.

Sanchez got hold of a Chris Archer offering in the third inning for his 15th homer of the year, and he also provided some small heroics with an RBI single in the ninth inning that tied the game and paved the way for Brett Gardner's walk-off homer in the 11th. The 24-year-old needed a good night after what's been a rough month -- Sanchez was hitting just .213/.259/.320 with one homer in July coming into the night. Perhaps Thursday's game can be a jumping off point for Sanchez.
Jul 28 - 12:43 AM

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Red Sox.

He'll be in there for the nightcap. Starlin Castro and Jacoby Ellsbury are also sitting out the first game, as the Yanks have Austin Romine at catcher, Clint Frazier in left field, Brett Gardner in center and Ronald Torreyes at second base.
Jul 16 - 11:44 AM

Gary Sanchez started the second half strong by going 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday’s loss to the Red Sox.

Sanchez singled home a run in the third inning and later slugged a long two-run homer in the fifth. According to Statcast, the homer traveled an estimated 409 feet over the Green Monster with an exit velocity of 109.6 mph. He’s up to 14 homers and 43 RBI with a .280/.362/.505 batting line through 58 games. Sanchez has been one of the best fantasy options at the catcher position despite missing some time this season with a biceps strain.
Jul 15 - 12:09 AM

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a double and scored a pair of runs on Monday as the Yankees dispatched of the Blue Jays.

The hard-hitting backstop got off to a slow start this season but is completely locked in at the plate at the moment. With his two-hit attack, he's now hitting .294/.380/.531 with 13 homers and 40 RBI on the season.
