Minnesota Twins Prospect Miguel Sano Makes History
Minnesota Twins top prospect Miguel Sano is turning heads in the team's farm system. Plus, he's making history, too.
Sano is having the type of summer that may deserve a September call-up, and he hasn't even reach Triple-A yet.
Sano has spent the summer of 2013 with High-A Fort Meyers and Double-A New Britain. Between the two minor league stops, Sano has smacked 31 home runs in 108 at-bats. That feat has only been done by four Twins minor-leaguers since 2000. Sano joins Michael Cuddyer, Michael Ryan, and Garrett Jones as the only players to hit 30 home runs.
This year, at High-A Fort Meyers in 56 games, Sano hit .330/.424/.655 with 16 home runs, 15 doubles, 68 hits, and 48 RBIs. At Double-A New Britain in 54 games, Sano hit .243/.344/.573 with 15 home runs, 12 doubles, 45 hits, and 44 RBIs.
Sano and Twins prospect Byron Buxton were recently featured in Sports Illustrated as well.
