Sanchez was hurt while at the plate in the fifth inning of Saturday's game against the Orioles. After taking a swing, he injured his arm on the follow-through.
Analysis: He was immediately removed from the game and replaced by Austin Romine. Sanchez hit 20 home runs in 201 at-bats as a rookie last year.

Analysis: The Yankees' rising star will be further evaluated, though he'll likely sit out Sunday's series finale at the least. Sanchez finished second in last year's AL Rookie of the Year voting after hitting .299 with 20 homers and 42 RBIs in only 53 games, though he's started this season in a 3-for-20 slump.

The pair of 24-year old sluggers is putting up big numbers in exhibition games, both hitting well over .300 with three homers apiece.
Analysis: Sanchez was called up Aug. 3 last season to catch and put together a spectacular final two months. Despite playing in just 53 games, he ended up tied for the fourth-most homers ever by a Yankees rookie with 20 and was second in the AL Rookie of the Year voting.
