The New York Yankees have been rejuvenated by their young crop of next level talent. It has led them to within one game of a wildcard spot and four games of a division title.
Saturday, Gary Sanchez showed why he’s primed to take the majors by storm.
The Tampa Bay Rays sought to intentionally walk Sanchez, but the Yankees catcher had different ideas. Sanchez turned an intentional walk into a sac fly and a near home run.
There’s only a handful of players who could get away with that.
Sanchez already had a home run of his own earlier in the game.
