Miguel Sano hit a two-run homer off Matt Boyd in the Twins' 6-4 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Sano has been striking out a ton of late, but he's still hit in seven straight games and his batting average seems to have leveled off right around .270. That might be disappointing, considering that he spent a good chunk of time at .300 earlier in the year, but .270 was always the far more realistic number for him. He currently has 26 homers and 74 RBI.

Miguel Sano (hand) is back in the Twins' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Brewers.

Miguel Sano (hand) took batting practice prior to Monday's game and was available off the bench.

Sano hasn't played since being hit by a pitch on the left hand last Friday for the second time in less than two weeks. "You get hit multiple times in the same hand and it has a chance to linger a little bit," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. It sounds like things are progressing well for Sano, though, and he could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday.

Aug 7 - 2:50 PM

Miguel Sano will undergo an MRI and CT scan on his injured hand on Monday.

Sano was removed from Friday's game after he was hit by a pitch on his left hand and sat out the remainder of the weekend due to lingering soreness.

Aug 4 - 10:28 PM

Miguel Sano went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

Sano was not alone in his offensive struggles, as the Twins finished the game with just three hits, only one of which went for extra-bases. He's up to 147 strikeouts in 368 at-bats this season, but despite his propensity for the swing-and-miss, Sano remains a big-time power threat. He is slashing .266/.355/.516 with 25 homers and 71 RBI overall.

Jul 30 - 8:17 PM

Miguel Sano had just one hit over five at-bats in Saturday's game in Oakland, but that hit was good for a two-run home run.

The All-Star has struggled in terms of average, hitting just .224 (11-for-49) since the break, but he has made his hits count. Sano has belted three homers with eight RBI over the past eight games. As such he remains a must-play fantasy option through thick and thin.
