Giants ink 2019 Gold Glove winner Sanchez


Yolmer Sanchez turned down two big league offers before the Giants offered him a minor league contract Wednesday. He accepted the contract in hopes to compete for the 2nd base position against Mauricio Dubon. Last season, Sanchez took him a Gold Glove at that position while with the Chicago White Sox while having just 9 errors, 416 assists and 248 put outs in 149 games. His offensive production wasn't the prettiest as he had just 2 home runs and drove in 43 RBIs for a .252 average but had 20 doubles and 4 triples as well.


The 27 year old from Venezuela comes to the Giants after spending the first 6 years of his career with the White Sox. He hit .244 over his time in Chicago and collected 214 RBIs and 24 home runs, he lead the league with 10 triples in 2018 and had 24 total while with Chicago.


His minor league totals over an 8 year span are identical of his big league totals. In over 2521 plate appearances, Sanchez hit .284 with 238 RBIs, 20 triples, 101 doubles and raked 20 homers.
