MINNEAPOLIS -- Torii Hunter, Minnesota's 40-year-old right fielder in his 17th full major league season, was at the plate last week with the bases loaded. Miguel Sano, the rookie slugger, was shouting more than simple encouragement from the dugout. He was giving Hunter hitting advice. "Make him come to you! Make him come to you!"

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Miguel Sano has shown he has one of the most powerful swings in the majors, in less than two months with the Minnesota Twins.

StaTuesday: Sano's impressive rookie production

Miguel Sano, it would appear, bypassed all the anxiety, feelings of inadequacy and second-guessing that are natural byproducts of being a big-league rookie. From the second he arrived at Target Field, the Minnesota Twins' prized young slugger swung with confidence, with patience and with a presence that made fans sit up and take notice.  You might be saying to yourself, though,...

Let's talk about Miguel Sano

There are a lot of rookies getting attention this season. And with good reason — it’s been a pretty good year for rookie position players. But while Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, Joc Pederson, Jung-Ho Kang, Randal Grichuk are Carlos Correa getting lots of pub, it seems as though Miguel Sano has not generated the same volume of coverage nationally as have his peers.

Twins call up top prospect Miguel Sano

Following an 11-17 June, the Twins have fallen five games behind the Royals in the AL Central, just one game ahead of the Tigers for second place in the division. Minnesota is only a half-game away from the league’s second wild-card bid, but is fighting in a mosh pit with five other clubs for that spot.
