Two sources confirmed the Yankees have signed Dominican catcher Gary Sanchez this morning for $3 million, the largest bonus the club has ever given to an amateur international player. It is also the largest signing bonus the Yankees have ever given to a position player.
The organization is expected to officially announce the signing later today. Sanchez’s signing bonus ranks as the fourth-highest in Yankees history behind Japenese righthander Hideki Irabu ($8.5 million in 1997), Cuban righty Jose Contreras ($6 million in 2002) and righthander Andrew Brackman ($3.35 million in the 2007 draft).
