Sanchez will likely come off the bench in Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game against the Red Sox, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Manager Aaron Boone said Monday that Kyle Higashioka will start behind the dish with Gerrit Cole on the mound Tuesday, and Sanchez will likely be available off the bench rather than serving as the designated hitter. The 28-year-old appeared in each of the final five games of the regular season and went 0-for-11 with two walks and eight strikeouts.
