Twins' Gary Sanchez: Slugs third homer

Sanchez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in a 3-1 victory versus Oakland on Monday. Sanchez was the only Minnesota player with multiple hits in the contest, and his sixth-inning 433-foot homer provided the final run in his team's win. The veteran has largely alternated time behind the plate and at DH so far his season, which has kept his bat in the lineup on a near-everyday basis. Sanchez is slashing a modest .217/.294/.424 on the campaign, but he has picked things up of late, going 5-for-15 with three doubles, two homers and four RBI over his past four games.

Sanchez isn't starting Thursday's regularly scheduled game against the Astros. Sanchez went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout during Wednesday's suspended game, and he was replaced behind the dish late in the blowout loss. He'll get a breather in the regularly scheduled matchup while Ryan Jeffers starts behind the plate and bats seventh.

Sanchez has hit .231 with three doubles, two runs and an RBI over his last seven games.

Gary Sanchez suddenly stuck in brutal catching situation with Twins

When the New York Yankees dealt Gary Sánchez to the Minnesota Twins this March, it seemed like a classic change-of-scenery opportunity that should have worked for both sides. Sánchez was no longer the consistent game-breaker he’d been in 2016-17, either because too many coaches got into his head, or because the league figured out his bat enough to limit his offensive usefulness to the point his defense would no longer fly.
