      Yankees' Gary Sanchez: Reaches base once against Syracuse

      Sanchez went 0-for-3 with a walk Sunday against Syracuse. Through 13 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Sanchez is batting .250/.316/.519. He struggled during his opportunity to win a major league spot during spring training, losing the backup catching job to Austin Romine. Sanchez went 0-for-2 during his two plate appearances with the Yankees last season, but could earn a role with the major league club at some point in 2016.

      Yankees' Gary Sanchez: Demoted to Triple-A

Sanchez was expected to make the team as Brian McCann's backup, but he has struggled mightily this spring, going just 1-for-21 at the plate.

      Yankees' Gary Sanchez: In the hunt for Opening Day roster spot

      Sanchez is just 1-for-14 so far in spring training. Following the offseason trade of John Ryan Murphy, Sanchez looked to be in good position to make the Opening Day roster as the club's backup catcher. The 23-year-old has struggled thus far in the spring though -- while his competition for the spot, Austin Romine, is hitting .294 -- so it's hardly a guarantee he'll begin the year in the majors. He's hit well at the upper levels of the minors though, so he should see time in the big leagues in 2016 even if he begins the year back at Triple-A.

      Yankees' Gary Sanchez: Well positioned to see big league at-bats in 2016

      Sanchez is well positioned to be the Yankees' backup catcher in 2016 after John Ryan Murphy was traded to the Twins in exchange for Aaron Hicks on Wednesday. Sanchez has 20-plus homer upside and the arm to stick behind the plate, so if something were to happen to Brian McCann, he could be useful in most formats. The Yankees may opt to keep Sanchez at Triple-A so that he can get regular at-bats, but he should be seen as the No. 2 catcher on the organizational depth chart at this point.
