Another one bites the dust.
Gary Sanchez was placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday with a left calf strain, making him the 12th Yankees player to be placed on the IL this season.
The hot-hitting catcher was not in the lineup on Wednesday to rest the calf but did make a pinch-hit appearance where he struck out.
Sanchez was leading the Yankees with six home runs and was hitting .268/.333/.732 with 11 RBI.
Kyle Higashioka was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his place on the 25-man roster.
In addition to Sanchez, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks, Luis Severino, Dellin Betances, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, Troy Tulowitzki, CC Sabathia, Jacoby Ellsbury, Ben Heller and Jordan Montgomery are the other Yankees on the IL.
Sabathia is expected to return this weekend.
