New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez had his four-game suspension reduced to three games following his appeal and issued an apology on Monday for his role in the brawl with the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 24.

"The heat of the moment and my desire to protect my teammates led me to commit some errors during the brawl," Sanchez wrote. "It's an incident I regret and from which I have learned. I know to some these may be mere words, but they are words that I feel the need to express because I sincerely feel this way, and for respect to you, the fans, the Yankees organization, the Detroit Tigers and the game of Baseball."

The MLB calendar hits one of its final milestones today as club rosters can be expanded from 25 to 40 players. The Yankees have a slew of players that will eventually come to the Bronx, but expect the shuttle to make multiple trips. We'll review some of the players who might have an impact down the stretch (in alphabetical order).

Note: All prospect rankings are via MLB Pipeline.

Miguel Andujar (Yankees' No. 6 prospect)

Andujar has shredded Triple-A pitching this season (.333 batting average, .379 on-base percentage and .531 slugging percentage with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 235 plate appearances), but he's been bypassed as a call-up mainly because he is considered a work in progress at third base (.939 fielding percentage). Once the Yankees received Todd Frazier in the White Sox trade, Andujar feel further back on the depth chart. The thing is, Andujar's bat is legit and the Yankees could use some right-handed pop. It will be interesting to see when Andujar is moved up, but don't expect him to be replacing anyone just because he can be carried with the big club.

The Yankees have acquired minor league C Erik Kratz from the Indians in exchange for cash considerations, it was announced Thursday.

Kratz, 37, has not appeared in the majors since last season, when he hit .107/.107/.286 in 18 games with the Pirates.

He is a career .200/.248/.362 hitter in parts of seven seasons during his major league career.

The Yankees, facing suspensions of Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine, which they have appealed, will likely soon need some temporary catching help.

After receivng a four-game suspension for his role in the Tigers-Yankees brawl Thursday, Yankees C Gary Sanchez is learning from his mistakes. 

Sanchez reacted like the rest of the players that afternoon, but he received a suspension as he threw multiple punches as teammates tried to hold him back. The incident is something he will try to stay out of if it happens in the future. 

"I'm a young ballplayer," Sanchez told ESPN's Andrew Marchand. "I've been in the league about a year and a half, stuff like that is stuff you learn from. If something like that is to happen in the future, maybe I'll react differently. It is part of the process, part of the journey."

Sanchez is known as a passionate player, and manager Joe Girardi believe that passion is what made him react the way he did on Thursday. Though Girardi believes Sanchez needs to control his emotions, he isn't going to try to kill his passion because he reminds him of another legendary Yankee...

GEICO SportsNite: Yankees' brawl 00:01:09
Baseball Night New York debates whether the Yankees who participated in the scuffle with the Tigers should receive suspensions.

The Yankees were defeated by the Tigers on Thursday, 10-6, but the loss was not the biggest storyline of the day. 

Tempers flared three separate times, resulting in eight ejections, a scuffle between Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera and Yankees C Austin Romine and multiple hit batsmen. Joe Girardi, Tommy Kahnle, Romine, Rob Thomson and Dellin Betances were the five Yankees to get tossed while Brett Gardner and David Robertson remained in the game despite their heavy involvements.

It all started when Michael Fulmer hit Gary Sanchez with a pitch in the top of the 5th inning. Girardi was furious from the dugout while C.C. Sabathia yelled out to Fulmer.

With two outs in the sixth inning and the Yankees trailing, 6-3, Miguel Cabrera and Austin Romine began jawing at eachother during Cabrera's at-bat after Tommy Kahnle threw behind him and was ejected along with manager Joe Girardi.

Whether Gary Sanchez can be a successful hitter in the major leagues is no longer disputable. However, the Yankees "full-time" catcher is beginning to demonstrate that scouting reports on his improving catching abilities were potentially off-base.

Understand that this is not a call for Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine to take over the starting catcher role. Romine is strictly a backup who is already getting too much time behind the plate -- and truth be told he's not having a tremendous season behind the dish either. However, if Sanchez does not improve his work behind the plate or it continues to deteriorate from this point, there is a chance the Yankees will debate his future as a catcher for the club.

Sanchez is visibly hurting the Yankees behind the plate this season, making nine errors (two fielding, seven throwing), and he's allowed nine passed balls. While wild pitches are charged to the pitcher's record, Sanchez could have saved a handful of the 25 that have gotten by him by using better mechanics.

Should Sanchez be in the derby? 00:04:01
The panel debates whether Gary Sanchez should be in the Home Run Derby and whether Jacob deGrom will continue to dominate.

Gary Sanchez responded on Wednesday to Rays 1B Logan Morrison's comments that questioned whether Sanchez belonged in the upcoming Home Run Derby.

"They gave me an invitation," Sanchez said, according to Dave Lennon of Newsday. "That's something I have no control over. It's not my fault he didn't get selected"

Morrison, who has 24 home runs this season, suggested on Tuesday that he belongs in the Home Run Derby over Sanchez, who has 13 home runs.

"Gary shouldn't be there,'' Morrison told the Tampa Bay Times. "Gary's a great player, but he shouldn't be in the Home Run Derby. "I remember when I had 14 home runs. That was a month and a half ago."

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez reached base safely five times on Thursday before having to leave the game early due to tightness in his groin.

Sanchez went 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, two RBI, and a stolen base. His two-out double in the bottom of the seventh helped tie the game at 4, while his ninth inning single brought in Starlin Castro to tie the game at six and force extra innings.

Sanchez stole second base in the top of the ninth, and was then forced to exit because of tightness in his abductor muscle.

JRSportBrief: NYY to be buyers? 00:01:29
In the latest installment of JRSportBrief on SNY.tv, JR discusses whether the Yankees should be buyers as the trade deadline approaches

As the New York Yankees sit atop the AL East standings heading into a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox, owner Hank Steinbrenner and GM Brian Cashman expressed their content with the way New York has played through the first two months of the season.

"It's good to know we're obviously on our way back to where we intend to get," Cashman said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland.

Many have been surprised at the Yankees' hot start given they traded several big-name players last year in return for prospects and got rid of several expensive contracts, however that belief was not shared by Steinbrenner.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is finding it difficult to replicate his performance from August 2016. While this should not be surprising considering the otherworldly statistics he produced as he burst on the scene, we might be surprised that his peripheral stats this season are not far removed from the historic performance last season. 

Sanchez took the league by storm, blasting himself into the Rookie of the Year Award conversation with only two months of play under his belt and 20 homers on the back of his baseball card. As such, expectations were (and are) high for Sanchez this season, to the point his above-average numbers for a catcher are falling well short of what he demonstrated last season in his first 24 games through a similar number of plate appearances in 2017.

New York Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka lost his second straight start on Saturday when he gave up six runs and nine hits in three innings in a 9-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

Tanaka (5-3) left the game in the bottom of the fourth inning after five straight batters reached base, including Corey Dickerson, whose second home run of the game gave Tampa Bay a 6-3 lead.

"We have to get him right," manager Joe Girardi said, according to the New York Daily News' Mike Mazzeo. "I thought his slider was better today. I thought his splitter was better at times. But he made some mistakes with his fastball. His stuff was better than his last start, but it's not where we need it to be. And we've got to continue to work on it."

CC Sabathia allowed five runs in six innings as the New York Yankees' six-game winning streak was snapped with a 5-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday at Great American Ball Park. >> Box score


After the Yankees took a 2-0 lead on solo home runs by Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius, Sabathia (2-2) gave up five runs in the bottom of the second inning.

He gave up two-run singles to Billy Hamilton and Joey Votto that gave the Reds a 4-2 lead, and Adam Duvall followed with an RBI single that made it 5-2.

While Sabathia settled down by retiring 13 of the last 15 batters he faced, the deficit was too much for the Yankees to overcome against Reds starter Tim Adleman (2-1), who gave up three runs and five hits in five innings, or the Cincinnati bullpen.
