|Miguel Sano starting to take batting practice |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) Twins prospect Miguel Sano has been able to progress to batting practice in recent days according to the Star-Tribune, as he continues to work his way back from elbow surgery.
Sano is expected to remain at the team's spring training complex through the month of November while rehabbing, before being cleared to play in winter league games in the Dominican Republic. Sano underwent Tommy John surgery in March, and is expected to be fully healthy by the start of next season.

(8/18/14) Twins infielder Miguel Sano has been able to swing a bat and take part in a throwing program, according to the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

|Miguel Sano to resume throwing Tuesday |

(7/7/14) Twins infielder Miguel Sano will resume light throwing Tuesday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Sano is less than four months removed from Tommy John surgery, but he was cleared to throw by the doctor who performed his surgery in March. He'll need another month before potentially receiving clearance to resume swinging a bat. If his recovery goes well, he could participate in the Dominican Winter League early in its season.

(6/20/14) Twins third base prospect Miguel Sano might be cleared to begin a throwing program in the next few weeks, as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
According to MLB.com, Sano will have his three-month checkup July 7, after which he might be cleared to begin light throwing. He will still have more rehabilitation ahead of him before he can return to game action, but the team remains hopeful he can begin hitting minor-league games in August.
|Miguel Sano won't be able to swing bat for five months |

(3/13/14) Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Thursday third baseman Miguel Sano (elbow) is expected to need five months of rehab before he can start swinging a bat, per MLB.com. Sano is recovering after undergoing successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday.
|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.
