The 22-year-old was rated as one of the game's best prospects entering the season and he's shown why in his first 157 major league plate appearances. Along with eight home runs, Sano has knocked in 27 runs and compiled a .292/.401/.554 triple-slash line.
Aug 17 - 11:28 PM

Tough game for the rookie. He's now fanned 47 times in 116 at-bats. With great power comes great whiff potential. Sano's slashing .284/.397/.552 with seven homers and 25 RBI over 34 games. 17 of the 22-year-old's 33 hits have gone for extra bases, more than making up for his strikeout-happy ways.

Sano hit a two-run jack in the third inning to make it a 4-0 game, then reprised in the fourth inning with a three-run homer to make it 7-0. In the fifth, his sacrifice fly capped off a four-run frame in which the Twins went up 11-0. It's a career game for Sano, who has hit the ground running since making his major league debut in early July, as he's hitting .295/.409/.571 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in only 137 plate appearances.

Miguel Sano delivered a two-run homer and an RBI single Wednesday in the loss to the Blue Jays.

Sano has struck out 38 times in 27 games, but he's also walked 21 times during that span. Basically, he's been the same player he was in the minors, without any sort of drop off so far. It's a rare profile to be this strikeout and walk heavy at such a young age, but it's not necessarily a bad thing.
