Gary is still good
He had an insane finish to the 2016 season, as many remember. He put up numbers that would have been been great for a full season for most catchers - .299/.376/.657 with 20 HRs and 42 RBI in only 229 plate appearances.
His 2017 numbers? .283/.371/.524 with 13 HRs and 40 RBI in 213 plate appearances. That's really good! Keep in mind he missed about a month of the season with a DL trip. Also keep in mind he'll play all season at age 24.
So while Aaron Judge has taken the league by storm, somehow Sanchez has been a bit overshadowed. He's still putting up huge numbers. And he's still really good. And he's still quite young.
I just wanted to let you know.
