Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez to have offseason surgery

“It bothered him from time to time and when it did he would complain about it, so yeah, it may well have been something that affected him performance-wise,’’ Cashman said. “He had MRIs that didn’t show anything overtly and so we thought we’d have no problem over the winter with rest. But it was still lingering in there so we decided just to get proactive and get ahead of it. Now’s the time to take care of it, I guess.’’
