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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
