2. C Gary Sanchez– Sanchez was the prized jewel of the system. He’s a power hitting catcher that the Yankees believed in enough to trade away Jesus Montero. Sanchez is developing at a normal rate, but is now blocked by Brian McCann at the major league level. If he keeps hitting well, Sanchez could displace McCann and make him DH. Sanchez has great potential to be a 30 homer threat at Yankee Stadium. I think if he can learn to handle pitching staffs decently, that he’s still the Yankees catcher of the future. They’ll probably start him off in AAA in 2015.
Grade: A Potential: All-Star catcher who is a major power threat
