The New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez will be out four weeks recovering from a Grade 1 biceps strain, manager Joe Girardi announced Monday.

Sanchez was placed on the 10-day disabled list after leaving Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles with the injury.

New York is really going to miss having the power Sanchez brings to the lineup. He already had one home run in the first five games for the Yankees.

Austin Romine will take over the starting catcher role for the time being.
