Yolmer Sanchez is going to be back with the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox purchased the contract of Yolmer Sanchez and he is already with the big club. The White Sox didn’t bring him back right after his gold-glove winning 2019 season because they felt like they would have Nick Madrigal up soon and he was owed more money than he was worth. He started this season off with the San Francisco Giants but he was let go from there too. Now, he is back with the White Sox and looking to make an impact.
Sanchez plays very good defense, is fast, and can come up with a big hit every now and then. With expanded rosters, it feels like he is a good guy to have on the bench ready to go in case he is needed. He isn’t there to be anything more than a depth player on this team and that should allow him to relax and help this team win when he is given the opportunity.
It didn’t take long for the White Sox to use him. He pinch ran for Edwin Encarnacion in last night’s ninth-inning when he reached on an error. He came all the way around to score and give the White Sox their first lead of the ball game and it stood as the game-winner. It was great to see him back with the White Sox because he was there during some of the tough times and now he can be a part of the good times.
He certainly isn’t going to be in the everyday lineup like he used to be but he might be more valuable in this current role. He also brings a tremendous amount of spunk to whatever team he is on. He is a fun guy to have on the team you cheer for because he makes things interesting even when he isn’t in the game. He is one of those guys who just so clearly loves playing Major League Baseball. Hopefully, he is able to be used the right way by the coaching staff and makes an impact in the proper role for the rest of the season.
