Twins' Miguel Sano gets first career hit in debut on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Twins rookie Miguel Sano recorded his first big-league hit in his Major League debut on Thursday. Sano went 1 for 4 on the evening, and his lone hit came in his final at-bat in the ninth inning. It was a slow tapper to third base that he beat out for an infield single. The Twins went on to beat the Royals 2-0.

"I feel really happy, not for the single, but for my team winning tonight," Sano said, per MLB.com. "It's my goal to try to win a lot of games this year."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) Twins prospect Miguel Sano was immediately placed in the starting lineup Thursday against the Royals following his promotion from Double-A Chattanooga. He served as the team's DH and hit sixth against veteran right-hander Chris Young.

Sano hit .254 with a .353 on-base percentage, .483 slugging percentage and .836 OPS in 201 at-bats against righties in Double-A this season. He also had one triple, 14 doubles, 10 home runs, 38 RBI, 40 runs, 30 walks and 60 strikeouts against right-handers.


Twins officially promote Miguel Sano to major-league roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) The Twins announced Thursday third base prospect Miguel Sano was called up from Double-A Chattanooga. He will be available for Thursday's game against the Royals and will wear No. 22.

Sano has been considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America since 2010, making it as high as No. 6 in 2014. MLB.com has had Sano among the top 100 prospects since 2012, ranking him as high as No. 4 in '14. Coming into 2015, Baseball America had Sano ranked 13th, while MLB.com had him ranked 11th.

The 22-year-old prospect, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, has a career .278/.373/.564/.937 slash line in 445 games in the minors. He has totaled 105 home runs.


Report: Twins to promote prospect Miguel Sano to MLB


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Twins prospect Miguel Sano could be on his way to the Major Leagues. A source told MLB.com that Sano will promoted to the Twins, who have an empty roster spot with Kennys Vargas being sent to Double-A on Wednesday.

Sano, 22, was ranked the 13th-best prospect in baseball by Baseball America prior to the season. He has yet to play above the Double-A level, but he has been excelling with Chattanooga this season.

He owns a slash line of .274/.374/.544 with 15 home runs, 18 doubles and 48 RBI in 66 games with the Lookouts. However, he has also committed 15 errors at third base this year.

The team has not yet confirmed if Sano will be promoted. 


Twins ready to promote Miguel Sano to major-league roster?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) Twins manager Paul Molitor did not dismiss a suggestion Tuesday that third base prospect Miguel Sano could be promoted to the majors sooner rather than later, according to the Pioneer Press.

"Every day that goes by he's closer to getting here, whether it's in a couple weeks or September," Molitor said.

Molitor was also asked if Sano might end up in left field.

"He moves better than people think he does once he gets going," Molitor said. "It's a big body to get moving; we all know that. I think he's athletic enough to where that wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility."

Following a poor start to the season, Sano has been on a roll offensively since early May. The top-100 prospect, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, has a .320/.582/.981 slash line in his last 33 games for Double-A Chattanooga. He has one triple, seven home runs, nine doubles and 26 RBI in that span.

"We've been looking for him to get consistency," Molitor said. "We talk to the people down there about his at-bats, what he's doing well, what's he's not doing so well and what will get exposed up here and what won't.

"It's nice to see that he's trending into playing better. Everything from defensively to his at-bats are things that we're monitoring pretty closely."


Twins birthday boy Miguel Sano can celebrate as hot hitter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) The arrival of Twins general manager Terry Ryan in Birmingham several days ago has apparently had a positive effect on premier third base prospect Miguel Sano, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Sano can celebrate his 22nd birthday Monday after having struggled mightily for quite some time at Double-A. He owned a batting average of .163 on May 6, but is since 7-for-15 in four games with one homer and five RBI. He has just one strikeout during that stretch after fanning a whopping 28 times in the previous 23 games.

Ryan is expected to remain in Birmingham for a few more days.


Double-A hitting coach working with Twins' Sano on improving approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Twins third base prospect Miguel Sano clubbed his fourth home run for Double-A Chattanooga on Thursday. However, the highly touted prospect struggled offensively for most of April.

Sano, who sat out last season recovering from Tommy John surgery, is batting just .159 with 22 strikeouts in 18 games. Before Thursday's game against Jacksonville, he spent extra time with Lookouts hitting coach Chad Allen working on his approach.

"Early in the year, he's really tried to do too much," Allen said, per MLB.com. "He's got a lot of strength and everybody that faces him knows he's a strong man and can hit the ball a long way. At the same time, he himself is trying to do too much.

"We hit early today and just really tried to slow him down and let the ball come to him. Let him understand he doesn't have to exert himself just to hit the ball hard."

Allen was encouraged with Sano's approach Thursday, especially when he hit his home run.

"Tonight was a great judgment on what he was thinking, that he wasn't trying to do too much," Allen said. "He took an 80-percent swing with two strikes on a fastball in and hit a home run. It's just a matter of him relaxing, calming down a bit and letting the game come to him."

Sano is considered a top-20 prospect by MLB.com (No. 11) and Baseball America (No. 13).

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano to begin season in Double-A


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was notified after Sunday's game he will begin the season at Double-A Chattanooga, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

"(Twins manager Paul Molitor) told me I'm going to start in Double-A," Sano said. "I'm fine. I'm OK. I'll go to the other side for work. I'll have the same plan I had over here. I'm feeling normal and happy. I want to have a good season. I'm really excited to go to the other side. Everything is good."

Sano thinks he will only be in the minors for a few weeks.

"Probably one month," Sano said. "A couple weeks. I don't know. I'll play the same."


Twins prospect Miguel Sano: I've been throwing 100 percent


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Twins prospect Miguel Sano is still battling to get back on the field after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Sano suffered the injury in an exhibition game in 2014 and Sano is finally starting to feel strong in the arm again.

"It's exciting," Sano said. "I feel pretty good. I feel healthy. Nothing has been bothering me. I've been throwing 100 percent every time."

Manager Paul Molitor is keeping a close eye on Sano's progress this spring.

"I was monitoring how he was doing on the drills, and he didn't have any issues with that elbow," Molitor said. "I thought it was a good day, playing the Gophers, to get some of our young guys the chance to play. And I know people want to see him play, so it's a good thing."


Twins' Molitor receiving good reports on Miguel Sano


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Twins manager Paul Molitor hasn't watched much batting practice thus far in spring training, but he keeps hearing good reports about prospect Miguel Sano, per the Pioneer Press.

“I just keep hearing how far balls are going,” Molitor said after Monday’s workout. “It’s fun for people to see. I hope he’s working on his whole game.

“He’s a young kid. But he’s doing fine. It’s good to see him healthy. He hasn’t had any issues with that (surgically repaired) elbow, and that’s what we’re trying to make sure we protect against as spring unfolds.”

While Molitor is pleased with how Sano is doing offensively, he really wants to see how Sano is progressing in the field.

“I was working today on the bunt defenses; he’s trying,” Molitor said. “There are things that are going to be a challenge for him. We’ve got to keep an eye on him. He’s a big boy. He carries it pretty well, but you’ve got to have some athleticism. He’s got to keep that … if he wants to play a corner-infield position in the big leagues, especially third base.”


Twins' Miguel Sano has recovered from Tommy John surgery


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Twins third baseman Miguel Sano appears fully recovered from Tommy John surgery last year, reports the Pioneer Press.

Brad Steil, the Twins director of minor league operations, said Sano has not been limited during workouts.

"He's doing pretty much everything," Steil said. "I don't know if [trainers] are going to watch how much activity he has in the first few days. Sometimes guys get in there and air it out and overdo it."

Sano missed the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, but Steil said he is at full strength.

"[Trainers] may watch him from that standpoint, but at this point there's nothing he won't be able to do," Steil said. "He's able to do everything in the workouts."


Twins OF Byron Buxton seeking bounce-back 2015 campaign


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Although Twins outfielder Byron Buxton is likely to start the year in Double-A, general manager Terry Ryan said that seeing both Buxton and third baseman Miguel Sano debut this season "would be a realistic point of view," according to the Associated Press.

Sano was sidelined in 2014 after having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow last March. Buxton endured a frustrating injury-riddled 2014 campaign. He has been recovering from a broken index finger and was recently cleared to resume baseball activities.

"We've got to knock off some of the rust that's built up on him, because he hasn't played all that much," Ryan said. "I don't anticipate anything that went on with him last year really affecting him in a negative way. He just didn't get enough at-bats or enough playing time to say it was a developmental year. We lost basically a year with him, and that's not what you like."


Sano, Meyer, Rosario added to Twins' 40-man roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
