Editorial Seventh entry

He had to wait until February but Dominican catcher Gary Sánchez will continue his career in the Big League after reaching a one-season agreement with the Milwaukee Brewers.

According to a report by Jon Heyman of MLB Network, this contract includes an option for 2025, and will be for 7 million dollars, which will allow Sánchez to remain in the Major Leagues, where he has played in nine seasons.

Sánchez had an eventful 2023 campaign — he signed with the Giants in April and played 16 games with Triple-A Sacramento before he was released on May 2, then signed with the Mets, playing three games in the majors before who was claimed off waivers by the Padres on May 29.

GARY SÁNCHEZ STATISTICS IN MAJOR LEAGUES

  • Seasons: 9
  • Teams: 3 (New York Yankees, New York Mets, San Diego Padres)
  • Games: 741
  • Batting PCT: .225

Milwaukee already has a figure behind the plate in Venezuelan William Contreras, who won the Silver Slugger last season. That’s why hiring Sánchez would offer the Brewers a powerful catching duo, with the possibility of both seeing time as a designated hitter.

The Dominican finally established himself in San Diego, where he played 72 games and hit .218 with 19 home runs, 46 RBIs and an OPS+ of 116 (the best since 2019). In parts of nine seasons in the Majors, Sánchez has an OPS+ of 109, averaging 38 homers and 98 RBIs per 162 games. With information from lasmayores.com
