The New York Yankees will be without starting catcher Gary Sanchez on Saturday. He will miss the game against the Cleveland Indians.

The Yankees have a day game on Saturday after having a night game last night. This was a decision made by manager Aaron Boone, but he could have definitely played, but a rest may help him.

Sanchez, who has made 23 starts behind the plate, went 1-for-4 against the Tribe last night. He had a home run and an RBI in the game.

Prior to Friday night’s game, he went 0-for-5 after a two game hitless streak. He also went hitless on April 30th against the Houston Astros — and went hitless in three of his last five games.

On the season in 29 games, he has .205 batting average with nine home runs and 28 RBIs. He has 23 hits on the season, including eighth doubles.

Sanchez will not be the only Yankees regular starter, who will not be in the lineup on Saturday. Didi Gregorius also will not start, but may be used as a pinch hitter if Boone decides to use him in that role.

With Sanchez sitting, the Yankees will start Austin Romine behind the plate.
