Mets call up ex-Yankee catcher Gary Sanchez: reports

Gary Sanchez is back in the Big Apple.

The Mets are calling up Sanchez from Triple-A Syracuse, according to reports. The catcher is expected to be activated Friday before the Mets host the Cleveland Guardians.

Sanchez signed a minor league deal with the Mets earlier in the month after he was released by the San Francisco Giants.

The former Yankee has excelled at the plate for the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, slashing .318/.531/.546 with five RBI in 32 plate appearances.

The Mets are calling up Sanchez while Omar Narvaez and Tomas Nido are missing games on the injured list. Buck Showalter’s club is currently relying on a tandem of Francisco Alvarez and Michael Perez behind the plate.

Sanchez started his career with the Yankees in 2015, where he played just two games. He was the runner-up for the American League Rookie of the Year award the following season after slashing .299/.376/.1.032 with 20 homers and 42 RBI in just 53 games.

The 30-year-old was selected to two All-Star Games and won a Silver Slugger award in pinstripes.

He was traded to the Minnesota Twins before the 2022 season in a deal that brought Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Ben Rortvedt to the Bronx. Infielder Gio Urshela was also sent from the Bronx to Minnesota in that same deal.
