(3/12/14) Twins infield prospect Miguel Sano underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday, the Star Tribune reports.
Sano completely tore the UCL in his right elbow while attempting to throw to first base in late February. He'll begin rehab soon in preparation for the 2015 season.
|Miguel Sano to have Tommy John surgery March 12 |

(3/4/14) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano will have Tommy John surgery March 12, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Sano had been dealing with elbow soreness throughout camp, and it was determined he needed surgery. Sano will likely miss the rest of the season due to the surgery, but there's a chance the team will utilize him as a designated hitter toward the end of the year. They have not ruled out allowing Sano to play winter ball if he can come back on schedule.
|Twins open to Miguel Sano returning this season |

(3/2/14) The Twins are open to third baseman Miguel Sano returning this season, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Sano would likely serve as the designated hitter in the minors. He's scheduled to have Tommy John surgery after running into throwing issues during camp. The club is also open to Sano playing in the winter leagues or the Arizona Fall League. Sano was expected to make his major-league debut this season.
|Miguel Sano has drawn comparisons to Miguel Cabrera since his earliest days in the minors, so when he appeared to be within spitting distance of the majors early this spring, Fantasy owners couldn't stop salivating. But then, of course, came the elbow pain and subsequent Tommy John surgery, bringing his chances of contributing in the majors this season to zero. Long-term, it's probably for the best. He's still just 20 years old, and even though he hasn't done anything to disappoint during his climb, his production in the upper levels suggests he's probably closer to being Giancarlo Stanton than Cabrera, meaning a pure masher instead of a well-rounded hitter. That's not inherently a bad thing, but a higher strikeout could have made for a rocky arrival, especially at such a young age. Sano hit .330 at Class A Fort Myers before a midseason promotion to Double-A New Britain, so maybe time is all he needs to get back on the Cabrera trajectory. Even with the setback, he'll most likley arrive at some point in 2015. Whether he's more Cabrera or Stanton on the talent spectrum, he's a player you want in long-term keeper leagues.
