News 
 Gary Sanchez joined his teammates for summer camp at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.

Mon, Jul 6th
Wilson Contreras went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 16-3 Cactus League win over the Giants.
Brad Camara
Wed, Mar 11th
 General manager Brian Cashman said Friday that Sanchez has "improved" since being diagnosed with the flu Tuesday.
Craig Rosenkrantz
Tue, Mar 17th
Willson Contreras heard his name mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason but nothing materialized so he is back as the starting catcher for the Cubs. He is a weapon against the running game with his strong, accurate arm along with his ability to catch runners who are not paying attention by snapping a throw off behind them.

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
Contreras had a nice bounce back season last year after a disappointing 2018. He, too, could catch 95 percent of the Cubs games this year, which would make him a lock for a top three catcher.
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
Contreras is no doubt one of the best hitting catchers in baseball, with a .270+ average in three of four seasons, but his upside is capped by the fact that Chicago also has Caratini and is certain to get him 200+ PAs. Even so, Contreras should have no trouble reaching 20 HRs, 50 R and 60 RBIs once again.
