Twins' Miguel Sano: Not starting Game 1
Sano isn't starting Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.Sano has gone hitless with four walks and two strikeouts in his last 12 plate appearances. Willians Astudillo will serve as the first baseman for Wednesday's matinee, batting fifth.
Twins' Miguel Sano: Launches homer in win
Sano went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Brewers.Sano took Brewers reliever Drew Rasmussen deep in the sixth inning to extend the Twins' lead to 6-1. The power-hitting Sano went just 2-for-13 (.154) with seven strikeouts in the season-opening series against the Brewers. He had a strikeout rate of 43.9 percent in 2020, and the 27-year-old corner infielder probably won't improve much on that mark this year. Fantasy managers will have to hope his power numbers cover the flaws in his play.
Twins' Miguel Sano: Gets start at third base
Sano started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Friday's spring training loss to Atlanta. It was the first time he's played third base this spring. "He's willing to put the work in. I think we'll see him playing over there at different points this year," manager Rocco Baldelli told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.Sano is hitting just .125 (3-for-24) with no home runs and 12 strikeouts. However, we wouldn't be too concerned about his performance given he's a veteran with a set spot in the lineup. The Twins moved Sano to first base last season after the team signed Josh Donaldson and didn't give him any work at third base. Sano could get some starts at third base this season as the Twins have said they're going to try to reduce Donaldson's workload, especially early in the season. It's possible Sano could gain third base eligibility again in some fantasy leagues.
