Sano missed most of the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He has not experienced a setback, but "doctors do not want him to play," according to the report. Sano was considered one of the top prospects in the game prior to the 2014 season.
"He looks pretty healthy," Ryan said of Sano. "He could go to the outfield if needed."
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.
Sano has misssed nearly the entire season due to Tommy John surgery. He's considered one of the team's best prospects.
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.
