Sanchez is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.
Perhaps no player in recent memory has gotten off to as hot a start to a career as Sanchez, but he's now fallen into a slump to close out the season. He is hitting .094/.189/.219 with one home run and 12 strikeouts over his last 37 plate appearances. Austin Romine will start behind the dish and hit seventh Saturday.
Thomas (illness) will not participate in Monday's matchup with the Vikings.
Thomas was a non-participant this week at practice, so this status is unsurprising. Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley will handle backup duties at defensive tackle in Thomas' absence.
Gregorius is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.
He left Friday's game after two at-bats, but so did several other Yankees regulars, so it seems that they are simply trying to spread out the playing time over the final games of the season. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop and hit ninth Saturday.
Jennings (thumb) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Vikings, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.
Jennings' potential Week 4 absence opens the door for Orleans Darkwa to see an increased role as the Giants' primary running back if Jennings is limited or unable to play. Either way, the team has a difficult matchup against a tough Vikings defense.
Wilson scored the Pens' only goal in a 1-0 win over Chicago on Friday. "I think Wilson has had a strong camp so far," coach Mike Sullivan told DK Pittsburgh Sports. "He came into camp in great shape. He's really competing on pucks. I think you can see his scoring ability. He's really got a nose for the net. He's got a great release. He's got a real good shot."
Wilson scored five goals and an assist in 24 games with Pittsburgh before an ankle injury ended his season in 2015-16. Prior to that, he potted 12 goals -- including nine on the power play -- and 36 points in 34 AHL contests. Wilson arguably possesses the most potential fantasy value among the Pens' young players, though a spot on the Opening Night roster isn't guaranteed.
