Gary Sanchez will bat cleanup and play catcher for the Yankees in Saturday's ALCS Game 7 against the Astros.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi kept the exact same lineup from Friday night's Game 6 loss, including keeping Sanchez in the cleanup spot. It's a vote of confidence for the 24-year-old, who has scuffled to a .204/.216/.429 line with 18 strikeouts in 49 postseason at-bats heading into Saturday's game. The rest of the Yankees lineup behind CC Sabathia Saturday: Brett Gardner LF; Aaron Judge RF; Didi Gregorius SS; Sanchez C; Greg Bird 1B; Starlin Castro 2B; Aaron Hicks CF; Todd Frazier 3B; Chase Headley DH.

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in the Yankees' Game 5 victory over the Astros on Wednesday.

Sanchez had a huge hit in Game 4 on Tuesday that gave the Yankees a 6-4 lead, and he looked like the hitter we've seen for most of the season on Wednesday. When Sanchez is at his best he's using the entire field, and he showed that on his RBI double and monster homer off of Brad Peacock. An already good lineup looks to be getting even stronger as Sanchez works his way out of this slump.
Oct 18 - 8:40 PM

Gary Sanchez went 0-for-3 with a walk and three strikeouts in Friday's ALCS loss to the Astros.

Starter Dallas Keuchel flummoxed the Yankee catcher all evening, fanning him all three times they faced each other. Sanchez drew a walk against closer Ken Giles in his final plate appearance. The young backstop has had an amazing season at the plate but not tonight.
Oct 14 - 12:04 AM

Gary Sanchez socked a solo home run in Monday's ALDS Game 4 win over the Indians.

Sanchez cranked an opposite-field shot off of reliever Bryan Shaw in the sixth inning to extend the Yankees' lead to 7-3, which turned out to be the final score. It's the young slugger's second longball in the series. The Bombers have forced a decisive Game 5 in Cleveland on Wednesday.
Oct 9 - 11:12 PM

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-6 with a two-run jack and two runs scored in a loss to the Indians on Friday.

He started the scoring by clubbing a home run off Corey Kluber in the first inning. Aaron Judge scored on the blast after having drawn a walk. Sanchez singled and scored on a Starlin Castro knock in the third inning. The young catcher had a .278 batting average with 33 homers and 90 RBI in just 122 games during the regular season.
Oct 6 - 10:50 PM

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

Aaron Judge, Greg Bird, Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius are also on the bench. Austin Romine will catch.
Oct 1 - 12:10 PM

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup Friday.

Sanchez had his league-leading 16th passed ball in Thursday's blowout loss to the Rays, but him sitting this one out is likely because it's a day game after a night game more than anything else. Austin Romine will do the catching. Brett Gardner is also getting a breather, as the Yanks have Aaron Hicks, Jacoby Ellsbury and Aaron Judge in the outfield.
Sep 29 - 10:26 AM

Gary Sanchez went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and a double in Monday’s victory over the Royals.

He went deep after Judge’s record-setting 50th homer of the season. Sanchez has slugged 20 homers since the All-Star break and 33 for the year. Keep in mind that he missed about four weeks with a strained right biceps during the first half. Amazingly, the 83 homers from Aaron Judge and Sanchez are the most by a pair of Yankees players in the same season since Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle combined to hit 115 homers in 1961.
Sep 25 - 4:10 PM

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Austin Romine will do the catching. Matt Holliday is also sitting out Sunday, as Chase Headley is in the designated hitter spot.

Gary Sanchez is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.

Austin Romine will do the catching for the Bombers' in this one and bat ninth against Jeremy Hellickson and the Orioles on Saturday. Sanchez is hitting .283/.350/.543 with 31 homers and 86 RBI during his impressive sophomore campaign.
Sep 16 - 12:31 PM

Gary Sanchez hit an RBI double and a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Sanchez got the Yanks on the board in the first inning with his RBI double -- the first of six runs they would push across in the inning against O's starter Wade Miley -- and much later he added a solo shot to pile on. Although it wasn't entirely extraneous -- the homer, his 31st of the year, gave him possession of the Yankees record for homers by a catcher in a single season. Not a bad distinction for an organization that's had some pretty good hitting catchers. The 24-year-old is having a great offensive year all around, batting .281/.349/.544 with those 31 homers, 85 RBI and 74 runs scored through 110 games.
Sep 15 - 1:08 AM

Gary Sanchez went 3-for-4 with two solo homers and four runs scored Sunday in the Yankees' 16-7 thrashing of the Rangers.

Sanchez got the party started with a drive over the left field wall in the top of the first inning. He then scored after a hit-by-pitch in the third, doubled and scored in the Yankees' six-run fourth, and tacked on another solo blast in the top of the eighth. The 24-year-old catcher boasts an .889 OPS with 30 home runs, 83 RBI, and 71 runs scored in 106 games this season.
Sep 10 - 7:05 PM

Gary Sanchez had his suspension reduced from four games to three games.

Sanchez, who was suspended for his involvement in a brawl with the Tigers last month, will begin serving his punishment on Monday. He'll be eligible to return Friday against the Rangers.
Sep 4 - 11:19 AM

Gary Sanchez went 3-for-4 with an RBI as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox on Saturday afternoon.

Sanchez plated the Bombers' fifth run with an RBI single in the seventh inning. The hard-hitting backstop is now slashing .274/.343/.528 with 28 homers and 78 RBI on the year.
Sep 2 - 4:10 PM

Gary Sanchez went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Sanchez muscled up to hit a solo shot to right-center off Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez in the third inning. The homer was his 28th of the year and his 12th to close a stellar month of August. The strong month got the 24-year-old's overall numbers healthy as well, as he enters the season's final month with those 28 homers, 77 RBI and 66 runs scored to go along with a .272/.343/.531 line.
