Yanks’ Young Slugger Faces a Bar He Set High, by Tyler Kepner

Tampa, Fla.–Big expectations after a 19-homer outburst in a short stretch of last season. 

Gary Sanchez: “Everything seems positioned for Sanchez to be the next great Yankee.” He hit 20 home runs in 52 career games for the Yankees.  However, he set the bar so high, it may be difficult for him to reach the heights again.

The metaphors, a high bar, a low bar are from track and field sports: bars set low are easier than the ones set high.
