The date Gary Sanchez can opt out of his contract with the Mets

Gary Sanchez signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets last week, but he won’t wait long to find out if he’ll get a chance to prove himself in the big leagues.

Journalist Mike Puma reported this Thursday that the Dominican catcher could opt out of his agreement this Friday unless he is promised that he will move up to the majors in the coming days.

The Mets are considering talks with Sanchez to extend the period for 10 more days to study whether raising him to MLB is appropriate after the appearance of prospect Francisco Alvarez.

Remember that catchers Tomas Nido and Omar Narvaez are on the disabled list, so it wouldn’t hurt to give the former New York Yankees masker a chance.

Sanchez has a .318/.531/.546 offensive line with one home run and two doubles in seven games for the Metropolitans’ Triple-A affiliate. The New York Post reported that if Sanchez moves up to the majors, he will earn $1.5 million, plus $1.2 million in incentives.

“We know Gary Sanchez’s career and what he’s capable of,” said manager Buck Showalter. “He’ll get his shot at Triple-A and we’ll go from there.”

He said, “His hand is very powerful. I haven’t seen him for a while, so we’ll soon know if he can help us.”
