Earlier this week Gaslamp Ball requested Padres followers in the event that they thought Gary Sanchez was going to stay the beginning catcher the rest of the season. The outcomes are in!
It’s not shocking to see the vote be this lopsided. Sanchez has gotten off to an incredible begin in his first 9 video games (.310 AVG, 1.168 OPS, 4 HR, 9 RBI) and being higher than Austin Nola isn’t a excessive bar to recover from.
Now the attention-grabbing query is when Luis Campusano comes again from the IL, who’s going to be the starter? Identical to what’s occurring now, it seemingly will rely on who’s hitting higher. If Sanchez is hitting like this, he received’t have to fret about dropping the job.
Campusano was hitting .238 with a .656 OPS earlier than he went on the IL together with his thumb damage.
The most recent replace on the 24-year-old is that there stays no agency timetable for his return, in keeping with Kevin Acee. His left thumb is in a splint and he isn’t but catching. He must be out till at the least the center of July.
