Cardinals' Ali Sanchez: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Sanchez will remain with the team as part of the taxi squad going forward, but he'll be removed from the major-league roster to make room for Yadier Molina (foot), who was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move. Sanchez appeared in just one game during his most recent stint in the big leagues.

Cardinals' Ali Sanchez: Called up by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The Cardinals need an extra backstop with Yadier Molina (foot) landing on the injured list, and Sanchez is the next man up. The 24-year-old went 1-for-9 at the plate during his brief debut with the Mets last season and hasn't produced a league-average batting line since rookie ball. He'll likely serve as Andrew Knizner's backup during his time with the team.

Cardinals' Ali Sanchez: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was optioned to minor-league camp Saturday.

Sanchez was competing for a backup role during spring training but should begin the season with Triple-A Memphis. The 24-year-old went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts during Grapefruit League play this spring.

Cardinals' Ali Sanchez: Shipped to St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was traded from the Mets to the Cardinals in exchange for cash considerations Friday.

Sanchez comes quite cheap after being designated for assignment Wednesday. He doesn't project as anything more than a backup catcher, as he owns a career .648 OPS in the minors. He made his big-league debut last season but came to the plate only 10 times, grabbing just a single hit.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: DFA'd by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old was the third catcher on New York's 40-man roster, so he was jettisoned to make room for offseason additions. Sanchez made his major-league debut in 2020 and went 1-for-9 with a walk in five games.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Returns to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Sanchez to their alternate training site Sunday.

Sanchez was removed from the active roster after he served as the Mets' 29th man in the club's doubleheader Saturday versus the Nationals. The 23-year-old backstop logged 10 plate appearances for New York in 2020 and is expected to open the 2021 campaign at Triple-A Syracuse.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Called up as 29th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled to serve as the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Sanchez will be available as a third catcher for Saturday's twin bill as the Mets compete for a narrow chance at a spot in the playoffs. The 23-year-old appeared in five games earlier this season, going 1-for-9 with one walk and three strikeouts.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Shipped to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Sanchez to their alternate training site Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Sanchez's demotion clears a spot for Robinson Chirinos, whom the Mets acquired from the Rangers in a deadline-day deal Monday. Chirinos will displace Sanchez as the No. 2 catcher behind Wilson Ramos.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Recalled for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled from the alternate training site and is starting Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

The 23-year-old is apparently serving as the 29th man for the twin bill, and he'll receive the spot start in the nightcap. Sanchez made his big-league debut Aug. 10 and went 0-for-1.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Sanchez spent two days on big-league roster, making his big-league debut off the bench Monday and recording an out in his lone plate appearance. He could return at some point this season but won't fill a significant role unless the Mets experience an injury crisis behind the plate.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled from the Mets' alternate training site Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Sanchez spent some time on the major-league roster earlier in the week but didn't appear in a game. The 23-year-old is unlikely to see much action while Wilson Ramos and Tomas Nido remain healthy.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Moves back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was optioned to the Mets' alternate site Thursday.

Sanchez has yet to appear in a game for the Mets this season, so it's no surprise to see him move back to New York's satellite camp as the team cuts its active roster down to 28. He reached Triple-A for the first time in 2019 and hit .179/.277/.250 across 21 games.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was recalled by the Mets on Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Sanchez's next big-league game will be his first. He's unlikely to fill a significant role for the Mets, as he's stuck behind Wilson Ramos and Tomas Nido. He's only appeared in 21 games at the Triple-A level and didn't look at all good there last year for Syracuse, hitting .179/.277/.250.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Beginning season at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Sanchez was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, but he was unable to carve out a spot on the big-league roster before the suspension of spring training. The 23-year-old will return to Syracuse once the season resumes, where he posted a .179/.277/.250 slash line in 65 plate appearances last season.

Mets' Ali Sanchez: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanchez was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

This protects the 22-year-old from the Rule 5 draft. Sanchez is a glove-first catcher who has been a below-league-average hitter at every stop above rookie ball. He hit .179 with zero home runs in 21 games at Triple-A and should return to that level this season. He profiles as a potential backup catcher long term.
