Jun 23 - 4:09 PM

Miguel Sano went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Sano and Chris Gimenez each fanned three times in the shutout loss. For his part, Sano is working to a .285/.382/.562 triple-slash overall, which he pairs with 18 homers and 52 RBI. While the production has been fantastic, it comes with its fair share of swings/misses -- Sano has whiffed 97 times in 238 at-bats.

Miguel Sano went 1-for-3 with a long solo home run in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Sano connected for an absolute bomb off David Holmberg to lead off the third inning, swatting it an estimated 414 feet to right. It landed in the second deck. The 24-year-old third baseman has gone yard in back-to-back games and is up to 18 on the season in what has been a grand year to date. He has driven in 52 runs for the campaign as a whole while working to a sharp .292/.392/.581 triple-slash in 65 games.

Miguel Sano crushed his 17th home run on Tuesday, leading the Twins to a 9-7 victory over the White Sox.

Sano opened the game's scoring by launching a two-run homer off of Derek Holland in the first inning. He added an RBI single in the ninth, finishing the evening 2-for-4 with three RBI. The hard-hitting third baseman is hitting a mighty .290/.388/.571 with 17 bombs and 51 RBI on the season.

Miguel Sano is out of the Twins' starting lineup on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Byron Buxton will also take a seat against Seattle right-hander Christian Bergman. Eduardo Escobar is at third base and Max Kepler is in center field.
Jun 13 - 4:40 PM

Miguel Sano had a three-run homer and a walk Wednesday against the Mariners.

Sano slumped in the second half of May, but he's bounced back with four homers in his last seven games. We doubt he's really going to end up hitting .300 this year, but every time he's fallen below the mark, he's come right back with another surge. He's at .306 right now.
Jun 8 - 1:40 AM

Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Sano came through with a two-run home run off Ricky Nolasco with one out in the sixth inning to flip a 2-1 advantage by the Angels to a 3-2 advantage for the Twins. That would stand as the final score. The slugger is working to a .303/.410/.607 triple-slash with 14 homers and 43 RBI across 178 at-bats. He might end up striking out close to 200 times this season, but there is no arguing with the production.
Jun 4 - 7:08 PM

Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Angels.

While Sano hit a solo shot in the second inning off Alex Meyer, his most notable play in the game came on defense. With runners on first and second and nobody out in the fourth inning, Jefry Marte hit a hard grounder to Sano, who then touched third and fired to Brian Dozier, who whipped it over to Joe Mauer to complete a 5-4-3 triple play. When it comes to his work with the bat, the young infielder is hitting .297/.411/.606 with 13 homers and an even 40 RBI over the course of 47 games played.
Jun 2 - 1:33 AM

Miguel Sano is back in the Twins' lineup Thursday against the Angels.

Sano is back after missing two games due to illness. He'll handle third base and hit cleanup Thursday versus Angels right-hander Alex Meyer. Sano has enjoyed a breakout year, hitting .292 with 12 homers and 39 RBI and should be well on his way to making his first All-Star team.

May 29 - 6:12 PM
