Last year when I was teaching my ROS course, we used Sawyer/Baxter with Melodic with no issues. I wrote my students a custom rosinstall file to handle missing dependencies. Maybe this will help you: http://nu-msr.github.io/embedded-course-site/notes/baxter_introduction.html#sawyer-build-instructions

Note, the snippet below is for release-5.2.0 tags of the Intera software from Rethink. If your Sawyer is on a different software version, adjust the rosinstall file accordingly:

cd
mkdir -p sawyerws/src
cd sawyerws/src/
wstool init
wstool merge https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jarvisschultz/f65d36e3f99d94a6c3d9900fa01ee72e/raw/sawyer_packages.rosinstall
wstool update
cd ..
source /opt/ros/melodic/setup.bash
catkin_make
