Sandy Alomar spent two decades catching in the majors, so he has an understanding of the difficulties Gary Sanchez has faced this season in trying to adapt to a new stance behind the plate.

The results have been brutal, as Sanchez’s productivity at the plate plummeted this season and he was benched in favor of Kyle Higashioka with Gerrit Cole on the mound in Tuesday’s Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series against the Indians in Cleveland.

“He changed his style of catching and that’s a process,’’ said Alomar, who is serving as Cleveland’s manager during the postseason while Terry Francona deals with health issues.

“He has one knee down now and that’s gonna take time in order to see results,” Alomar said.
