That's the premise of this piece at NJ.com:

I have several thoughts on this, but I'll just leave it here for you guys to debate among yourselves for awhile. I'll be back to "clean up" later

He has nice numbers...better average than Sanchez, decent pop (ok so he won't hit 30HRs a season, but if this is the best we can expect from Sanchez in the future, neither will he ever hit 30 in a season again either) good doubles hitter, with some speed. I'm not sure what other teams would expect in a trade for Sanchez now that the truth about him has come out (bad defense, lackadaisical, and now with a history of hamstring problems, which take long to heal). The Marlins may want more than just Sanchez in return.

Sanchez may not get his chance to improve on this team if Hal wants to win now and Jeter wants to play ball with Cash again this offseason. I have no qualms with that bc we already have a question marks with our rotation and first base, why take a chance on having to play Romine everyday in a year where expectations are the highest. Personally, Im a man of little faith and want to see it in front of my eyes so Sanchez hasnt proven enuff in pinstripes. This season has made last years performance seem like a fluke. If I’m Cash and there’s a reasonable offer, I take it for a proven catcher like JT. I’d easily trade the two extra yrs of control to increase our chances in the following yrs of winning the WS. Catcher is too important of a positon to risk it and Sanchez don’t seem hungry enuff to even show up in good physical shape, never mind the terrible footwork and passed balls and poor hitting, etc.

Boy, has Sanchez' stock fallen on these boards. 


Two things I know for sure.  If he comes back and hits, say, .200/2/8 in September, the off season will be filled with threads proposing various trades involving Sanchez.


If he comes back and hits .285/6/24 many of these same folks will be calling or him to be extended.


Personally, I do have concerns that his defense has taken a step back this season, that his 2018 offense is not an aberration and the lackadaisical effort will not be a one time occurrence.  Sad as it may be to say, but, unfortunately, the Yanks are better off with Romine catching than 2018 Sanchez.

I'm not going to say anything ... let's see how he comes back this season ... let's see if anything has changed.

   I don't think Sanchez was ever healthy this year. I don't want to trade him. I want to sign him to a 5 year contract. I think we are forgetting how dominant he can be when 100%. Stay patient on this one, the payoff could be huge.

I would never sign him to a 5 year contract after what we saw this season ... year by year.

Several years until Sanchez becomes a FA.  Still lots of time to make an evaluation.

No; too early to give up on Sanchez, the Yankees have years of control yet.
