Should the option not be exercised, there’s a buyout provision contingent on Sánchez’s days on the active roster and the major league injured list due to what’s defined as a “qualifying injury,” such as a fractured bone or torn ligament anywhere except his right wrist. The buyout ranges from none for fewer than 60 days to $1 million for 60-89 days, $2 million for 90-119 days, $3 million for 120-149 days, and $4 million for 150 days or more.

Included in the deal is a $1 million assignment bonus in case of a trade, along with accommodations of a hotel suite during road trips.

Last year, Sánchez recorded a batting average of .217 with 19 home runs and 47 RBIs across 72 games for San Diego and three for the New York Mets. His career stats encompass a .225 batting average, a .309 on-base percentage, 173 home runs, and 448 RBIs in 741 regular-season games, spanning stints with the New York Yankees (2015-21) and Minnesota (2022).
