Gary Sánchez, Mets agree to Minors deal

Catcher Gary Sánchez has agreed to a Minor League deal with the Mets, the team announced Tuesday. Sánchez will report to Triple-A Syracuse.

Terms of the agreement weren’t released, but according to a report from MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, Sánchez would earn $1.5 million if he makes the Majors and the deal includes $1.2 million in incentives.

The 30-year-old backstop opted out of his deal with the Giants last week when he was not promoted to the big league roster. In 16 games with Triple-A Sacramento, Sánchez batted .164 with no homers and eight RBIs, along with 19 strikeouts.

SF Giants release former Yankees, Twins catcher Gary Sánchez

Former New York Yankees and Minnesota Twins catcher Gary Sánchez was released by the SF Giants on Monday. Sánchez signed a minor-league deal with the Giants in early April, and there was an expectation that he could quickly find his way to the MLB roster. However, he struggled mightily at Triple-A, hitting .164/.319/.182 with 19 strikeouts in 69 plate appearances. While he was cut by the organization, Andrew Baggarly and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that he exercised the May 1st opt-out in his contract.

Giants agree to minor league deal with Gary Sanchez, report says

The San Francisco Giants have agreed to a minor league deal with veteran catcher Gary Sanchez, The Athletic reported Friday.

Sanchez can opt out of the deal if he isn’t promoted to the majors by May 1.

The two-time All-Star with the New York Yankees struggled last year in his one season with the Minnesota Twins. He batted .205 while hitting 16 homers and driving in 61 runs in 128 games. Sanchez spent his first seven seasons with the Yankees and started his tenure by hitting 20 homers in 53 games in 2016. He finished second for American League Rookie of the Year honors despite a late recall from the minors.
