Miguel Sano went 4-for-6 with a homer and three RBI as the Twins topped the Orioles 14-7 on Monday.
Sano had gone eight straight games without a homer, but even during that stretch, he hit .300 with a .382 OBP. He's been an awesome force since day one this year, and we see no reason to expect that to change. May 22 - 11:19 PM

Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and three total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Sano picked up his first RBI on an infield single in the fifth inning. He would come through once more with a two-run double in the seventh. The 24-year-old third baseman is blossoming into a true star this season and is slashing a lovely .305/.431/.626 with 10 homers and 33 RBI across 131 at-bats.
May 21 - 5:42 PM

Miguel Sano blasted a solo homer in the first inning on Friday, powering the Twins to a 1-0 victory over the Indians.

It was the second straight game in which Sano hit an opposite field bomb, this time victimizing Josh Tomlin with two outs in the first inning. That turned out to be the only offense the Twins would generate, but Ervin Santana and company were able to make it stand up. Sano finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing a fantastic .305/.443/.686 to go along with 10 homers and 30 RBI on the season.

Miguel Sano will serve his one-game suspension on Tuesday.

Sano lost the appeal of his suspension for an incident against the Tigers back on April 22. He'll be back in there on Wednesday.
May 9 - 1:37 PM

Miguel Sano went 2-for-3 with an RBI triple, a walk, and a run scored Friday against the Red Sox.

Sano thought that he popped out to right field in the first inning, but the ball kept carrying and ended up at the base of the wall and bounced around long enough for him to make it all the way to third base. The 23-year-old has been an absolute monster so far this season, batting .312/.443/.667 with eight homers and 28 RBI through 27 games. He had his hearing for his one-game suspension on Friday, but a ruling isn’t expected until Monday or Tuesday, so he should play all three games of the weekend series against Boston.
May 6 - 12:31 AM

Miguel Sano finished 3-for-5 with a homer and five RBI on Sunday versus the Royals.

Sano had a three-run homer in the third and RBI singles in the fourth and sixth as Minnesota marched to a 7-5 victory. The 23-year-old slugger is off to a tremendous start this season, with a .316/.443/.684 batting line, seven home runs, and 25 RBI in 23 games. He's on pace for 49 homers and 176 RBI.
Apr 30 - 6:51 PM

Miguel Sano homered, doubled and knocked in four runs Friday as the Twins beat the Royals 6-4.

That's six homers and six doubles for Sano, who has about 250 points of OPS over any of the other Twins' regulars. He leads the team in homers by four, in RBI by nine and in runs scored by four.
Apr 29 - 1:16 AM

Miguel Sano went 3-for-4 -- all singles -- in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Sano now owns a nice .286 batting average after hitting .236 last year. He has also doubled his walk rate, leading to a stellar .432 on-base percentage. He has five home runs, 14 runs scored and 16 RBI through 88 plate appearances. Still 23 years old (his birthday is in two weeks), the former elite prospect has made some adjustments and seems to be maturing as an all-around hitter.
Apr 27 - 12:58 AM

Miguel Sano went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk Tuesday against the Rangers.

Remember three weeks ago when Paul Molitor thought Byron Buxton would be a better hitter than Sano this year? Sano is at .258/.417/.591 with five homers and 16 RBI right now. No one else on the Twins has more than two homers or 11 RBI.
Apr 26 - 1:08 AM

Major League Baseball has suspended Miguel Sano one game for his involvement in an altercation during Saturday's game versus the Tigers.

Sano took exception to a Matt Boyd pitch that went behind him and then gave a hard shove to James McCann after the catcher intervened. The Twins' third baseman is in Monday's lineup and will continue to play until his appeal is heard.
Apr 24 - 5:47 PM

Miguel Sano was ejected from Saturday's game against the Tigers following an altercation with James McCann.

Sano took exception to a pitch thrown behind him in the fifth inning and shoved McCann when he blocked his path to pitcher Matt Boyd. The benches cleared and Sano and Boyd were both ejected. Sano went 1-for-2 on the afternoon. Joe Mauer replaced him at first base after the ejection.
Apr 22 - 4:55 PM

Miguel Sano clubbed a solo homer on Tuesday against the Indians.

It was an ugly night for Sano otherwise, as he struck out three times in four hitless plate appearances. However, his fantasy owners will obviously take any night that includes a homer. The slugger is sporting a .245 average but a .245/.393/.612 line overall with four dingers and 13 RBI.
Apr 19 - 12:44 AM

Miguel Sano had a three-run homer and three walks Thursday in the rout of the Tigers.

That's three homers, 11 RBI, 10 runs scored and eight walks in nine games for Sano. Back at his natural position, he's hitting like everyone hoped he would last year.
Apr 13 - 4:54 PM

Miguel Sano went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the Twins' victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

Sano hit a double off White Sox starter Jose Quintana in the top of the second inning and cranked a two-run shot off reliever Nate Jones in the top of the eighth. The young slugger is sporting a .350/.458/.850 batting line with two home runs and eight RBI through six games this season. Maybe he should have gone higher in fantasy drafts this spring.
Apr 9 - 6:43 PM

Miguel Sano delivered a go-ahead RBI double in Friday's win over the White Sox.

The Twins were down 1-0 early, but they tied things up thanks to some poor defense in the fourth inning before Sano put them ahead for good with an opposite-field double in the sixth. Sano is 5-for-13 (.385) through four games so far this season and has hit safely in all of them. He strikes out too much to hit for a high batting average, but he could easily find himself among the league leaders in home runs as soon as this year.
