Gary Sanchez Signs With Brewers

  • Headshot for Gary Sanchez

    Free-agent catcher Gary Sanchez signed a one-year, $7 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. Sanchez began last year with the New York Mets but only played in three games with them before eventually being picked up by the San Diego Padres, where he thrived in 72 games, clubbing 19 home runs and driving in 46 runs in 260 plate appearances. However, it also came with a weak .218 batting average (51-for-234). The 31-year-old veteran backstop was particularly effective against left-handed pitching in 2023 and should at least be in play as Milwaukee's designated hitter against southpaws in 2024, in addition to providing the team with a backup catching option to starter William Contreras. Sanchez can provide some pop in two-catcher leagues, but fantasy managers wouldn't be wise to expect a repeat of last year.
