Sano (shoulder) will start at first base and bat fifth Monday against Cleveland.

A bruised left shoulder kept Sano on the bench for Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rays, but the injury apparently isn't too much of a concern for the first baseman as the Twins begin a seven-game week. Since the beginning of August, Sano has provided a .235/.328/.490 slash line with seven home runs and one stolen base in 28 games.
