Miguel Sano (hamstring) went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in a rehab game Tuesday night with Triple-A Rochester.

The home run sailed out just right of dead-center, per Rochester Red Wings play-by-play man Josh Whetzel. Sano had been 1-for-8 with three walks since beginning his rehab assignment this past Saturday. He should be cleared to return to the Twins' active roster by the end of the week.

Miguel Sano (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment at Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.

Sano has finally seen some improvement in recent days, moving around much better on his ailing left hamstring. Barring any setbacks, he could be ready to rejoin the Twins before the end of the month.
May 18 - 11:59 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Friday that a rehab assignment for Miguel Sano (hamstring) is imminent.

The skipper said that Sano has been moving "significantly better" on his ailing left hamstring recently. It's finally some good news on the rehab front for Sano, as his recovery has dragged on much longer than expected. It sounds like he has a good shot to be activated before the end of the month.
May 18 - 5:36 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Miguel Sano (hamstring) was "not close to 100 percent" when doing some running Monday.

Sano also fielded some grounders, but it doesn't sound like he's close to game-ready. A return before the end of the week appears to be out of the question. He's been out of action since late April.
May 14 - 4:46 PM

Miguel Sano is still feeling pain in his strained left hamstring.

Despite traveling with the team to Anaheim, Sano doesn't seem to be close to a rehab assignment, St. Paul Pioneer Press beat reporter Mike Berardino said. Twins manager Paul Molitor said they hope to be "pleasantly surprised by the early part of the week." It's starting to sound like a late May return is a best-case scenario for the slugger.
May 12 - 7:54 PM

Updating an earlier report, Miguel Sano (hamstring) will not be activated for the team's series in Anaheim this weekend.

Sano surprisingly made the trip to Anaheim for the start of Minnesota's four-game set with the Angels. He's been running, hitting and even took some ground balls at third base before Thursday night's game but it looks like the Twins will play it safe by activating Sano sometime next week. Eduardo Escobar (.344 AVG in May) has done a tremendous job filling in at third base for Minnesota.
May 10 - 8:00 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) took grounders at third base before Thursday's game against the Angels.

This comes as a pleasant surprise as Sano wasn't expected to make the trip to Anaheim. The fact that Sano is traveling with the team suggests he could be activated from the disabled list later this weekend. Utility man Eduardo Escobar has been filling in for Sano at third base.
May 10 - 5:53 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Monday that it's "pretty unlikely" Miguel Sano (hamstring) will rejoin the team later this week in Anaheim.

Sano has been working out but hasn't tested out his strained left hamstring with any running yet. The Twins will be back home in a week and it would appear that's the best-case scenario for his return.
May 7 - 5:39 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) is not with the Twins on their current road trip.

Sano is eligible to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, but he wouldn't appear to be close to a return. He did go through a workout on Tuesday at Target Field but isn't ready to test out his strained left hamstring by running yet.
May 4 - 12:04 PM

Twins placed 3B Miguel Sano on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a left hamstring strain.

Sano missed back-to-back games over the weekend and will now get some extended rest. Eduardo Escobar has been filling in at third base, with Ehire Adrianza covering shortstop duties. That should continue most days until Sano is ready to return.
May 1 - 3:30 PM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Monday that Miguel Sano (hamstring) is "not making a lot of progress" and the team is considering placing him on the disabled list.

Sano tried to run Monday but it didn't go well. The Twins currently have a two-man bench and they don't figure to be content with that for long. Unless Sano experiences rapid improvement over the next day, it sounds like there's a good chance he'll be placed on the DL prior to Tuesday's game.
Apr 30 - 5:49 PM

Miguel Sano (hamstring) remained out of the Twins' lineup Monday.

It's the third straight game he's missed because of a tight hamstring. The club said that Sano was available off the bench Sunday, so it would appear they're confident he'll be ready to play again soon. The Twins are again going with Eduardo Escobar at third base and Ehire Adrianza at shortstop.

Apr 29 - 11:27 AM

Miguel Sano was held out of the Twins' starting lineup on Saturday due to tightness in his hamstring.

Initially it was believed that it was a routine day off for Sano, but now we have learned that he's dealing with a minor hamstring issue. He should be considered day-to-day.
