Twins 3B Miguel Sano gets chance to rest hamstring injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:11 am ET) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was held out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox. Sano is trying to play through a hamstring injury, and he was rested Thursday since it was a day game after a night game.

"It's a tough thing right now with him. I know he wants to play, and staying in the lineup from here on out is the most important part of the equation," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "A day game following a night game heading into Houston isn't going to make a huge difference. I can't tell you exactly that. There's no way to measure how much 40 hours might help."

The hamstring injury didn't seem to bother Sano on Wednesday, as he homered for a third straight game. The rookie third baseman has been on a nice power surge, homering eight times in his last 14 games and slugging .833 in that span.

Since Aug. 5, Sano has a .323/.402/.742/1.144 slash line in his last 25 games. He has six doubles, 11 home runs and 28 RBI in that span.

"I'm trying to not run too hard or too fast," Sano said. "I can feel it when I'm on base."

Encarnacion's hit streak lasted for 26 games. Over that stretch, he slashed .412/.474/.876 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI. The impressive streak raised his season average almost 30 points, from .234 to .273. 

His on-base streak is still alive and well, currently sitting at 32 games.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/1/2015) The Rays have recalled left-hander Matt Moore and four others from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday. Moore, who missed the first three months of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, made six starts for the Rays earlier this season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
