White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Six-game hitting streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 1-for-3 with a double in Sunday's 9-2 loss to the Angels.

Sanchez will carry a six-game hitting streak into Monday's series opener in Minnesota, but it's come with no stolen bases and almost no power (one double, zero home runs). The lack of categorical juice Sanchez offers even during periods where he's providing a quality batting average limits his appeal largely to AL-only formats.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Athletics.

Sanchez started the last 36 games at the keystone for the White Sox but will take a seat Friday after posting a .639 OPS in that stretch. Leury Garcia will take over at second base while Ryan Cordell starts in center field.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks, a stolen base and a run Wednesday in the White Sox's 5-2 loss to the Mets in 11 innings.

Sanchez has been productive over his last five games with a 6-for-16 showing at the plate to go with two steals and four runs, but the 27-year-old's overall profile still leaves much to be desired for fantasy purposes. His dearth of power in particular is a major hindrance to his value, especially during a season where home-run production has risen to unforeseen levels. Sanchez has left the yard just twice in 339 plate appearances.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Collects two extra-base knocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Rays.

Sanchez got the White Sox on the board in the seventh inning with a triple to right center, but the Rays would come away with a 4-2 victory in the series finale. He's now slashing .254/.314/.339 with two homers and 24 RBI through 88 games this season.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Cranks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored Friday against Tampa Bay.

Sanchez clubbed a solo homer to left field in the fourth inning, and he added another run in the ninth on a double to left. The 27-year-old is slashing .254/.315/.331 with 15 extra-base hits and 23 RBI over 86 contests in 2019.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Cubs.

Sanchez was back in the lineup after missing one game due to a hand injury. He needed stitches to close a cut suffered when the hand was stepped on during a pickoff attempt.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (hand) is back in the lineup Saturday, manning second base and batting seventh against the Cubs.

Sanchez suffered a laceration Thursday, when he was stepped on at third base on a pickoff attempt, with three stitches required to close the wound. However, it seems the wound is not at risk of reopening on a swing and Sanchez will be able to tough it out. Sanchez is batting .256/.324/.321, and at this point he seems likely to be non-tendered in the offseason.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Could play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez received three stitches in his hand but could still play Saturday against the Cubs, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Sanchez was stepped on during a pickoff attempt at third base Thursday. Stitches were required to close the wound, but X-rays were negative, and manager Rick Renteria thinks Sanchez may be able to play in the team's final two games before the All-Star break, if he can stand the pain. Jose Rondon is the backup at second base.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is considered day-to-day after X-rays on his right hand were negative.

Sanchez has a laceration, but that's the extent of the damage after he was stepped on during a pickoff attempt at third base Thursday. Jose Rondon will likely fill in at second base if Sanchez isn't ready to go following Friday's off day.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Exits with hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was removed from Thursday's game against the Tigers with a right hand injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Sanchez hit a single in his only at-bat and sustained the injury when he was stepped on during a pickoff attempt in the third inning, forcing him from the contest. The severity of the injury is currently unclear, but the 27-year-old will have Friday's scheduled off day to recover before potentially missing any more time.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Enters game for Moncada
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (illness) entered Wednesday's game as a pinch runner after Yoan Moncada took a pitch off the knee. He remained in the game and went 1-for-3 with two runs scored in an 8-7 win over Boston.

Sanchez, who missed Tuesday's game because of an illness, opened Wednesday's game on the bench but was needed after Moncada was plunked. Sanchez remained in the game at second base while Jose Rondon slid from second to third. The White Sox have an off day Thursday, when they presumably will make arrangements to cover the left side of the infield, where Moncada and Tim Anderson (ankle) are dealing with injuries.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Sitting again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez (illness) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

The White Sox will play shorthanded in the middle infield while an ailing Sanchez is joined on the bench by shortstop Tim Anderson, who sustained a right high-ankle sprain in Tuesday's 6-3 loss. While Sanchez sits for a third straight game while battling symptoms of the flu, Jose Rondon will pick up another start at second base.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez will be unavailable Tuesday against the Red Sox while he deals with an upper-respiratory infection, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

He was sent back to the team hotel due to the illness. Jose Rondon gets the start at second base against a southpaw for the second day in a row. Consider Sanchez day-to-day.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Red Sox, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Sanchez is hitting just .226 with two extra-base hits in 62 June at-bats. Jose Rondon gets the start at second base against a southpaw for the second day in a row.

June 24, 2019 02:36 PM
White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez is not starting Monday against Boston.

Sanchez sits for the first time in over a month despite posting a poor .245/.322/.303 slash line over the course of the season. Jose Rondon starts at second base in his absence.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Triples, swipes base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez 3-for-4 with a triple and stolen base Wednesday against the Cubs.

Sanchez logged his first triple of the season in the second frame, though he was ultimately stranded there. He also utilized his speed later in the fourth inning, reaching base on an infield single before swiping second base for his third steal of the season. Despite the strong performance, Sanchez lacks fantasy upside, not possessing much power in his bat and hitting almost exclusively in the bottom third of the lineup.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Drives in two Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's win over the Yankees.

Sanchez, who made his 24th consecutive start, continues a slow climb back to respectability. He was batting just .224 when his game streak started and is now up to .254, going 22-for-78 (.282) during that stretch. Nothing stands out as remarkable during the run, other than that he's no longer getting random off days due to poor hitting.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Delivers multi-hit night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Friday against Cleveland.

Sanchez tacked on an insurance run in the fifth inning with a single to right-center, putting the White Sox ahead 6-1. He's now hit safely in six straight matchups, driving in four runs over that brief stretch.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Plates two runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Royals in the completion of Monday's suspended game.

Sanchez plated the game-tying run Monday, then had the game-winning knock in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday. The two-RBI game raised his season total to just nine through 45 games.

White Sox's Yolmer Sanchez: Delivers three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez finished 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Astros.

On his hot night at the plate, Sanchez tacked on his sixth double of the season along with a pair of singles and a run scored. There's not much to see here, though, as the 26-year-old is batting just .235/.324/.311 with seven RBI, 13 runs and one home run through 41 games.
