Gary Sanchez is heading back in the game…
The New York Yankees have activated the 26-year-old Dominican professional baseball catcher from the 10-day injured list and demoted struggling reliever Chad Green to the minor leagues.
Sanchez had been sidelined since April 10 because of a calf injury. He hit six home runs in his first 11 games this season before suffering the injury.
Sanchez is the first of several prominent injured Yankees regulars to return from the IL.
The Yankees are still without Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, Didi Gregorius, Luis Severino, Dellin Betances, Aaron Hicks, Greg Bird and Troy Tulowitzki.
