Gary Sanchez Returns To The Lineup On Tuesday

New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday after sitting on the bench for the team's past two games. Sanchez has had a dreadful year, hitting just .130 with 48 strikeouts in 100 at-bats. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, it's hard to get away from him, given his upside and the complete lack of depth at the catcher position. Hopefully, he'll be able to turn things around soon and avoid being benched regularly. With the many of injuries amongst Yankees hitters, the team could really use a Sanchez hot streak to close out the year.

Gary Sanchez Mashes His Sixth Home Run Of The Season

New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez went hitless in the first game of Sundays doubleheader but hit a 453 ft extra-inning grand slam in a pinch-hit appearance during the Sundays second game. More than half of Sanchezs 11 hits this season have now come on long balls, as hes paired his 6.3% home run rate with a .128 BABIP and a 39% strikeout rate. That being said, Sanchezs strikeout rate should fall back towards last seasons 28% mark based on his 13.9% swinging-strike rate and 44.1% swing rate. Its a small streak, but Sanchez has now struck out only three times in his last 13 plate appearances and may finally be trending in the right direction. Combined with the fact that his high strikeout rate is unsupported by his swinging-strike rate and that his BABIP is unsustainably low, Sanchez is an attractive buy-low option in fantasy leagues.

Gary Sanchez Remains In Season-Long Offensive Malaise

New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez has not come anywhere near the offensive expectations that were set for him prior to the start of 2020. Following Wednesdays doubleheader against the Braves, Sanchez is now slashing a paltry .139/.253/.361 through his first 23 games. But with the Yankees having very few alternative options, Sanchez figures to continue seeing ample playing time. For optimistic owners, Sanchezs 92.1 MPH average exit velocity and 48.6 Hard Hit % are well above average, indicating that better days may be ahead. At the same time, he has delivered a .150 xBA, which ranks among the bottom one percentile of all hitters in the Majors. He will face the Mets over the weekend, likely missing Jacob deGrom, which should bode in his favor.
