Giants Sign Gary Sanchez to Minor League Deal


April 1

Gary Sanchez signed a Minor League contract with the San Francisco Giants, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

My oh my, how the mighty have fallen. Just a few years ago, Sanchez was considered one of the top catchers in Major League Baseball. Now, he went unsigned all offseason and had to ink a minor league deal just to have a chance to play in the majors once again.

Sanchez did participate in the World Baseball Classic, so theoretically, he should be ready to play but has only until May 1 to be called up by the Giants. If he isn’t, Sanchez can opt out of the deal that will pay him $4 million while on the major league roster.

In the meanwhile, until Sanchez is potentially recalled, Joey Bart and Robert Perez will split the duties behind home plate.

The Giants will have Alex Cobb starting on Saturday versus Clarke Schmidt of the New York Yankees. The Giants are -170 (+1.5) on the run line and +122 on the moneyline, with an over/under of 8.5, over (-114), and under (-106). You can find the lines and props for this game and all others on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
