The Yankees are currently missing many of their top stars, but Gary Sanchez could be set to return to minor league action soon.
Gary Sanchez hit the injured list earlier this month with a strained left calf, but he could be ready to begin minor league rehab games, according to the Daily News.
“So no minor league games tomorrow, so that backs us up a little bit. We’re still trying to figure out where, trying to get the most convenient spot,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said before Saturday’s 9-2 win over the Royals at the Stadium. “If all goes well there, he’ll fly to meet us in Anaheim on Tuesday with the idea he’ll be an active player for us Wednesday.”
Before hitting the injured list Sanchez was arguably the Yankees’ hottest hitter to begin the season, slashing .268/.333/.732 with six home runs through his first 11 games. Out of all of the Yankees stars currently injured, it seems as if Sanchez could be the first of the bunch to return.
Hopefully, for the Yankees, Sanchez has no setbacks in his minor league rehab games so that he could return to the club in Anaheim on Wednesday to face off against the Angels.
