What’s next for the Minnesota Twins and Miguel Sano?


The Minnesota Twins have risen to the top of the American League Central this season, but one player lost in the shuffle is Miguel Sanó.

It’s astounding to think that a player that Sports Illustrated’s Albert Chen compared to Miguel Cabrera in 2013 wouldn’t have a role in the Twins’ success, but after completing a rehab stint in the minors, the Twins either need to find room for the 29 -year-old or move on.

Sano’s career wasn’t supposed to be this way. He was one of the top international free agents when he was 16. According to a 2015 article from The Guardian’s David Lengel, the Pittsburgh Pirates scouting staff had nicknamed him “Hanley Pujols” as a cross between All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez and future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols.
