  • Twins' Miguel Sano: Rejoins lineup

    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.

  • Twins' Miguel Sano: Sits with sore shoulder

    Sano did not play Sunday due to a bruised left shoulder from a collision with Rays catcher Mike Zunino on Saturday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Sano was only a little sore and he was also held out to get more lefthanded bats in the lineup against a left-handed starter. However, check on Sano's progress to make sure it's not a significant injury.

  • Twins' Miguel Sano: Pops solo shot in blowout loss

    Sano went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Monday in the Twins' 11-1 loss to the White Sox.

    Sano's 429-foot blast off Lucas Giolito in the eighth inning was just about the only blemish of the night for the latter, who faced the minimum through the first seven frames. Alex Kirilloff's season-ending wrist surgery has solidified Sano as the Twins' everyday first baseman, but the 28-year-old should be viewed as a low-end fantasy option at the position.. Over his 21 games since the All-Star break, Sano is hitting .260 with four long balls, 10 RBI, 15 runs and one stolen base.

  • Twins' Miguel Sano: Homers twice

Though he now has only four long balls in 24 contests since June 21, Sano has shown a bit more promise of late by collecting seven extra-base hits across his last 10 starts. Even so, he has an unremarkable .208/.291/.446 line across 302 plate appearances on the campaign.
