Catcher Gary Sanchez is going to get another opportunity at the the big league level with the Yankees, as the team has promoted him from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees will be hosting the White Sox, and they are slated to pitch lefties on Friday and Sunday, giving the Yankees a need on the right side of the plate.
