Gary Sanchez is picking up right where he left off last season. 

The 24-year-old Yankees slugger smashed a homer off the scoreboard during batting practice Thursday at George M. Steinbrenner Field, and made it look effortless.

There's no Statcast available, obviously, but the left-center wall there is 399 feet away, and that ball hit the board 25-30 feet up.

Afterward, Sanchez shared his thoughts about the blast on Twitter.

Yankees fans are ready for an encore performance from the young catcher, who hit 20 home runs in 201 at-bats last season.
