When the Yankees began the 2019 season, he was the only healthy player on a team that had a history of injuries.
On April 7th, he smashed three two-run homers to lead the team to a 15-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. David Hess, Mike Wright, and Dan Straily all allowed the home runs.
This time it was against Hanser Alberto, who was throwing mop-up relief. He had the opportunity to hit his fourth long ball but instead flew out to left.
For the first time this season, the Yankees finished above.500. Sanchez, on the other hand, was put on the injured list on April 12th with a calf injury.
On April 27, he hit his first career grand slam after being activated by the New York Yankees on April 24. Since the debut of Statcast, this was the longest hit slam in the history of the sport.
A month later, against the Los Angeles Dodgers, he blasted his 100th career home run, making him the fastest catcher in big league history to reach that milestone.
While Joey Gallo had previously held the AL record with 377 games played, Mike Piazza required 422 games to become the all-time leading catcher in MLB history.
A groin injury suffered in the third inning of the second game of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers on September 12th raised further injury concerns, and it appears like he will be out until the start of the postseason at the earliest.
While he did start two late games and hit just.061 in those outings, his final batting average was still.232 with 34 home runs and 77 RBIs, also lifetime bests.
As the Yankees fell short in the ALCS, he played in all of his team’s postseason games but only managed a.129 average with one home run and 16 strikeouts.
