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.
