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.
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.
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.
