Yankees C Gary Sanchez (Groin) Out of Lineup on Saturday

For the second day in a row, the New York Yankees will be without young catcher Gary Sanchez in their lineup against the Oakland Athletics. Sanchez, who suffered a groin injury on a slide in Thursday night's game in Oakland, is considered day-to-day and is not yet at risk of a trip to the disabled list.

The 24-year-old catcher spent several weeks on the disabled list this season, but has crushed it at the plate when healthy. In 165 plate appearances, Sanchez owns a .297/.382/.559 slash line, 11 home runs and 33 RBIs. He should be back in New York's lineup by Sunday or Monday and return to being a force in the lineup for fantasy owners and the Yankees. Until Sanchez returns, Austin Romine is filling in as New York's starting catcher.
