Gary Sanchez is headed back to the big leagues.

The New York Mets have reportedly called up the veteran catcher from Triple-A Syracuse, and he will be active for Friday’s series opener against the Cleveland Guardians, per Andy Martino of SNY.

Sanchez, 30, agreed to a minor-league contract with the Mets just over a week ago. The deal allowed him to opt out if he was not added to the MLB roster by Friday.


In seven games with Triple-A Syracuse, Sanchez hit .318/.531/.545 clip with a homer, two doubles, eight walks, and nine strikeouts.

Sanchez spent seven seasons with the Yankees earlier in his career.
