Notes 
 It was a nice bounceback season from Sanchez, but you have to wonder how many games he'll miss behind the plate with his below-average defense.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
There's nothing about Garver's 2019 that is really unsustainable, but it's such a small sample and a late-career breakout that it's hard to buy in fully.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Yes, Sanchez did manage to swat 34 homers and has historical power potential for the position, but you are definitely going to take a hit at batting average if you draft him. With that said, hitting in the middle of the Yankees lineup should afford fantasy owners loads of RBIs and runs too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Garver may be the most difficult catcher to peg this season because his breakout was so extreme and such a surprise. He hit 31 homers in just 311 at-bats. Surely that rate will regress but he should also get more trips to the plate too so 35 HRs, .260 BA is not out of the question by any means.
