He finished second in 2016 Rookie of the Year voting after playing in only 53 games. His 19 home runs in 45 games, made him the then-fastest player to reach that mark in modern baseball history.
Also known as ‘The Kraken’ Sanchez also gained popularity for the social media hashtag #IAmGary. Though all of his career achievements are equally important, for Gary being a father comes first. He and wife Sahaira are the proud parents of one child.
