' The Yankees are counting on Gary Sanchez bouncing back at the plate after his awful 2020 season.
It’s why they didn’t designate him for assignment this offseason and even gave him a larger-than-expected raise to $6.35 million.
And while the beleaguered catcher has worked on his swing with Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames and played winter ball in the Dominican Republic to improve his approach at the plate, he’s got a different issue, as well, according to Hall of Fame catcher Ivan Rodriguez.
“He doesn’t enjoy baseball right now,” Rodriguez told WFAN. “He feels like…he comes to the ballpark and it’s a depressing thing for him right now. That’s what I see when he’s playing.” '

I don't want to spook you, Yankee fans, but that's exactly what they've been saying about Chris Davis for three years, right along with "he's working with the hitting coaches and he has a really new approach at the plate"

Red flags are up already about German’s state of mind. On Wednesday night, he posted a bizarre “everything is over” message in Spanish on his Instagram account. He quickly deleted that post and then wrote a new one in Spanish that stated, “I’m ready.”
