Gary Sanchez has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left calf strain, retroactive to April 11.

Sanchez pinch hit Wednesday night and after the game the Yankees and Sanchez both said that his calf wasn’t serious. Don’t believe what you hear, I guess. It’s unclear how much time Sanchez might miss but, until he’s back, Austin Romine will be the catcher and Kyle Higashioka, who was called up from Scranton, will back him up.
