Yankees will listen to trade offers for Gary Sanchez

There’s no denying New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had a rough 2020 season, eventually being replaced by Kyle Higashioka in the postseason. Last month general manager Brian Cashman said the catcher position was subject to evaluation, and now according to the New York Post the Yankees will at least listen to trade offers for Sanchez.

Earlier on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network listed the Yankees among the suitors for free agent catcher Yadier Molina. Molina would be a defensive upgrade over Sanchez, but it’s hard to see a whole lot more.

Sanchez posted a .147/.253/.365 slash-line with 10 home runs and 24 RBI over 178 plate appearances this past season. He struck out a good bit more (36 percent), and his BABIP was .159. Whatever the explanation, Sanchez is still only 27 (28 on Dec. 2). He hit 34 home runs in 2019, the second 30-plus homer season the last three full, normal campaigns.
