Gary Sanchez risks losing his gig as the Yankees backup catcher, according to Fred Kerber and George A. King III of the New York Post. In 10 games this spring Sanchez hasn't had the best stat line, going 1-for-16. Combine that with the fact that Austin Romine has had a good and solid camp, and there's a position battle brewing. It's brewing enough to the point that manager Joe Giaradi feels that Sanchez may be pressing a tad.

"Probably a little bit," Girardi said. "The first time you have an opportunity to make a club, I am sure there is a lot of excitement in that young man. We really believe he is going to be a really good player."
