The Twins declined Sano's 2023 option Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Declining the $14 million option was likely a no-brainer for the Twins, as Sano posted a .344 OPS in 71 big-league plate appearances in 2021 before struggling with injuries for the rest of the season. A minor-league or one-year MLB contract seems like the best-case scenario this offseason for Sano, who when healthy could still provide some home run power but nothing more.
