After becoming the youngest member of the San Francisco Giants' World Series roster, the 23-year-old catcher wants to show improvement.
``You have to show something better every year. Nothing's assured in baseball,'' Sanchez said. ``What is certain is that you have to work hard every day and it's their decision. I just want to make that decision easy for them and be here every day.''
As Buster Posey's backup, Sanchez got 48 starts behind the plate when the All-Star was given days off or shifted to first base. Sanchez hit .280 in 227 at-bats with three homers and 34 RBIs, catching many of Barry Zito's starts.
Sanchez also struck out 52 times - nearly a quarter of his a-bats.
