Sánchez signed with the White Sox as an international free agent in 2009. He played in the Dominican Summer League (DSL) for the DSL White Sox in 2009 and 2010. The next season, he split the year between the Bristol White Sox of the Rookie-level Appalachian League and the Kannapolis Intimidators of the Class A South Atlantic League, finishing the year with a .286 batting average with 30 runs batted in and 48 runs scored in 68 games. During the 2012 season Sánchez moved quickly through the White Sox system. He started the season with Class A-Advanced Winston-Salem then moved to Double-A Birmingham Barons and then eventually Triple-A Charlotte Knights. He was named to appear in the 2012 All-Star Futures Game while playing for the Winston-Salem Dash of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League.[2] Sánchez hit a combined .323, 169 hits, 1 home run, 25 doubles, 7 triples, 79 runs, 56 RBI, 26 stolen bases in 133 games. The White Sox invited Sánchez to spring training as a non-roster invitee in 2013 [3] and ranked as the White Sox #4 prospect.[4] Sánchez spent the entire 2013 season at Triple-A Charlotte where he batted .241 in 432 at bats, 50 runs, 20 doubles, 2 triples, no home runs, 28 runs batted in, 29 walks, 76 strikeouts and 16 SBs.

Sánchez was added to the 40-man roster on November 20, 2013.[5] On July 13, 2014, the White Sox promoted Sanchez to the MLB roster and made his MLB Debut that same day going 0-5 with two strikeouts. Sanchez was sent down to Charlotte after the game, but was recalled to Chicago on August 22, 2014, after the White Sox traded Gordon Beckham.[6]

Sánchez announced that he would go by his first name, Yolmer, starting from the 2017 season, rather than his middle name of Carlos. In doing so, he became the first player named Yolmer in Major League Baseball.[1]

In 2018, he batted .242/.306/.372.

In 2019, he batted .252/.318/.321 with two home runs and 42 RBIs, with the lowest slugging percentage and Isolated Power in the major leagues (0.69), and the highest opposite field percentage of all major league batters (34.2%).[7] On defense, he had an 11 Defensive Runs Saved (DRS) rating, the best in the American League among second basemen.[8]

Sánchez was released on November 25, 2019.[9]
