The Yankees have been riding high as of late and are in the midst of a six game win streak. However, today they received some bad news. According to RailRiders beat writer Shane Hennigan, Gary Sanchez has a crack in his thumb.
Brian Cashman said Gary Sanchez has a "crack in his thumb." He said Sanchez is on his way to New York to get looked at by the team doctor.
Sanchez was hit by a pitch during last night’s loss to Louisville, and wasn’t in the lineup for this afternoon’s game. Cashman said he would think this means a DL stint for the Kraken, but has to wait and see what the doctors say. We will keep you updated on the situation.
In 34 games for the RailRiders this season, Sanchez is hitting .290 with six homers and 26 RBIs.
