  • Mets' Yolmer Sanchez: Latches on with Mets

    Sanchez signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez, 31, spent the duration of the 2023 season at Triple-A Gwinnett in Atlanta's organization, producing a .731 OPS in 117 contests. He's probably headed to Triple-A Syracuse to start 2024, where he'll provide the Mets with some veteran infielder depth.

  • Braves' Yolmer Sanchez: Goes to minor-league camp

  • Braves' Yolmer Sanchez: Gets minors deal with Atlanta

    Sanchez signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Tuesday.

    Sanchez spent the 2021 season at Triple-A Gwinnett and he's likely headed back to Gwinnett to start 2023. The 30-year-old utility player saw some brief action in the majors in 2022 with the Red Sox and Mets. He's merely a depth piece at this stage of his career.

  • Yolmer Sanchez: Becomes free agent

    Sanchez elected free agency Tuesday.

    Sanchez will test his luck on the open market this winter and is unlikely to garner anything more than a minor-league contract from the Mets or another organization. The 30-year-old utility infielder's lone big-league action in 2022 came with the Red Sox, with whom he posted a .322 OPS over 44 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Yolmer Sanchez: Remains in organization

    Sanchez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Mets over the weekend, but he'll stick in the organization after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 30-year-old is 4-for-37 with two RBI and a run scored in 14 big-league games this season.

  • Mets' Yolmer Sanchez: Designated for assignment

    Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Mets on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Sanchez spent a week and a half with the major-league club after being claimed off waivers by the Mets on Aug. 18, but he saw minimal playing time during his time on the active roster. The 30-year-old will lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Eduardo Escobar (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list Saturday.

  • Mets' Yolmer Sanchez: Claimed by Mets

    Sanchez was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Thursday.

    Sanchez lost out on playing time late in his stint with the Red Sox and was ultimately designated for assignment Tuesday. He hit just .108 with two RBI and a run over 14 games with Boston to begin the year but will join the Mets' major-league roster as a versatile defensive option while the team deals with various injuries, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. He'll likely fill a depth role and could lose his spot on the big-league roster once Eduardo Escobar (oblique) or Luis Guillorme (groin) are cleared to return.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: DFA'd on Tuesday

    The Red Sox designated Sanchez for assignment Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    While Sanchez provided steady infield defense over the last month, he's slashed a dreadful .108/.214/.108 in 44 plate appearances this season. He'll now exit the 40-man roster, clearing the way for Enrique Hernandez's (hip) return from the 60-day injured list.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Moving back to reserve role

    Sanchez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Kansas City, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Sanchez had started each of the last four games at the keystone, but his playing time is likely to dip moving forward after Rafael Devers came off the injured list Tuesday. With Devers back in the fold at third base, utility man Christian Arroyo can slide over to second base, where he'll likely play on a regular basis so long as Trevor Story (wrist) remains sidelined. Sanchez hasn't made a case for holding down an everyday role after going 2-for-33 at the plate since his July 22 promotion from Triple-A Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Not starting Thursday

    Sanchez isn't starting Thursday against the Guardians, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Sanchez started the last five games and went 2-for-16 with two RBI, three walks and four strikeouts. Jeter Downs is taking over at second base and batting ninth.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Getting third straight start

    Sanchez will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Guardians, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Sanchez will pick up his third consecutive start at the keystone while slumping rookie Jeter Downs heads to the bench. Over his first two starts, Sanchez went 1-for-5 with three walks and an RBI. He could end up settling in as the Red Sox's primary option at second base over the struggling Downs while Trevor Story (hand) remains on the injured list.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Back in big leagues

    Sanchez was recalled by the Red Sox on Friday.

    Sanchez has spent nearly the entire season with Triple-A Worcester, though he'll get the chance to serve as depth in Boston's infield with both Trevor Story (hand) and Christian Arroyo (groin) sidelined. Sanchez has maintained a .247/.377/.413 line across 303 plate appearances with Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Sanchez was returned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Sanchez joined the Red Sox ahead of their series in Toronto on Monday and failed to get a hit in his only at-bat Wednesday. He will now return to Triple-A where he has produced a .253 average with eight home runs over 68 games.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Contract officially selected

    Sanchez's contract was selected from Triple-A Worcester on Monday.

    Sanchez is joining the active roster for the team's three-game series in Toronto, and he's scheduled to start in Wednesday's matchup. The 29-year-old has slashed .253/.381/.424 with eight homers, 39 runs, 29 RBI and four stolen bases over 68 games in Worcester this year.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Slated to join major-league roster

    Sanchez will be added to the major-league roster for the Red Sox's upcoming series in Toronto, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Jarren Duran will land on the restricted list ahead of Boston's series since he's unvaccinated, so Sanchez will join the big-league club for the first time this year. Sanchez is likely to start in Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays so the Red Sox can give Trevor Story two consecutive days off.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Won't win roster spot

    Sanchez was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

    Sanchez was fighting for a utility infield spot in camp but won't get to convert his minor-league deal into a major-league opportunity for now. He could join the roster at a later date when the Red Sox need cover in the infield, but his career .245/.300/.360 slash line means he's unlikely to earn regular at-bats.

  • Red Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Finds work with Boston

    Sanchez signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Sanchez will attend spring training as a non-roster invitee and should receive the opportunity to compete for a job as a utility infielder on the Red Sox's Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old was a 2019 American League Gold Glove winner at second base while he was with the White Sox, but he's been a below-average contributor at the plate over seven seasons, putting together a .245/.300/.360 slash line (79 wRC+) in 2,459 plate appearances. He didn't appear at the MLB level in 2021, as he played exclusively at Triple-A Gwinnett as a member of Atlanta's organization.

  • Braves' Yolmer Sanchez: Joins Atlanta on minors deal

    Sanchez signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Saturday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The 28-year-old appeared to be in line for the starting job at second base for the Orioles throughout spring training, but he was designated for assignment and released early this week. Sanchez had a .252/.318/.321 slash line in 555 plate appearances while winning the Gold Glove at second base for the White Sox during 2019, but he was unable to maintain a roster spot last season and appeared in only 12 games.

  • Yolmer Sanchez: Heads to open market

    Sanchez cleared waivers Tuesday and became a free agent, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Sanchez looked like the favorite to break camp as the Orioles' second baseman, but he posted a .451 OPS this spring and ultimately failed to win even a bench spot. Ramon Urias and Pat Valaika will compete for that job, while Sanchez will have to look for work with a different team. Sanchez is a strong defender with a Gold Glove on his resume, but he's also a career .245/.300/.360 hitter.

  • Orioles' Yolmer Sanchez: DFA'd by Baltimore

    Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 28-year-old was claimed off waivers from the White Sox early in the offseason and appeared slated to open the season as the starter at second base, but the Orioles opted to remove him from the 40-man roster with camp winding down. Sanchez could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers. Ramon Urias and Pat Valaika should be in the mix to start at second base for Baltimore.
