Yanks’ Boone defends catcher Sánchez as ‘excellent’ defender

Yankees manager Aaron Boone wasn’t sure Wednesday what his lineup for the next day’s Game 4 of the AL Championship Series would look like.

Gary Sánchez will be behind the plate, though — whether many in the Bronx want it that way or not.

Boone doubled down on his defense of Sánchez after Wednesday’s scheduled Game 4 was postponed a day due to rain. Boone said his catcher has been “excellent” defensively, and he wouldn’t hesitate to start the two-time All-Star against the Houston Astros.
