  1. The Prodigy

    The Yankees catchers, especially Sanchez, have been dreadful. They can try to get something out of him and Andujar, both reclamation projects, and Sauer, a RHP prospect.

    Stallings and Higashioka will platoon and hopefully rejuvenate the #2 position on the scorecard, with Stallings preaching of offense, while Higashioka being a nice defensive catcher.

    It would seem like the Yankees get the best of this deal by a long, long ways. Stallings is a good catcher and would be a huge upgrade over Sanchez. Both Sanchez and Andujar have been awful and would be either sent down by the Pirates or at best, end of the bench players. Sauer is just starting and is a lottery ticket. This doesn’t look like anything the rebuilding Pirates would want to part of.

    • The Prodigy

      Well, Sauer is a lotto ticket who if blooms, will be a good pitcher. Otherwise, why would they pick him in the 2nd round of the 2017 draft? Also, he’d fit perfectly in the contention window as a 25-26 year old, in 2023-2024 (maybe 2025+). Andujar can try mending his craft with some pinches of playing time, and Sanchez can be the starting C and be offensive-minded as much as he wants, while not being stifled by anybody. He may also mentor Rodriguez in the minors.

  3. John Furlong

    Where does Andujar play in the NL with no DH this year. Andujar does not belong on the field defensively. I would not want Sanchez to mentor anyone.
