Thursday Twins: Miguel Sano’s new haircut

Thursday Twins: Miguel Sano’s new haircut

Plus, Ervin Santana is mad about the trade deadline, and more. Miguel Sano apparently got sick of having the old “Eduardo Nunez” happen to him (losing his helmet), so he cut his hair shorter and got a new helmet. I guess we’ll see if it helps. He also said the haircut was because he was tired of being so hot and sweaty, which means we can start the countdown to Souhan going on another rant about Sano’s conditioning. During the Twins game yesterday, alleged umpire Joe West moved into second place on the all-time games umpired list. No word on his status on the “screwed the...

Twins 6, Pirates 4: Big Day Bobby

Berrios exits early, but Twins answer back against Archer For the second start in a row, Jose Berrios was unable to make it past the 4th inning, giving up 4 runs (3 earned), but ultimately got a no-decision on the day. The Twins have struggled against Pirates starter Chris Archer in the past, but were able to mount a comeback and take both games of the inter-league series. The Pirates struck first in the 2nd after a HBP, a single, and a throwing error by SS Jorge Polanco. The Twins answered right back in the bottom half on a double by Miguel Sano and RBI singles from Logan Forsythe and...

Sano, post-haircut: Homers great, wherever they go

Minnesota Twins: Miguel Sano performing well since return

The Minnesota Twins have seen positive results since bringing Sano back to the major league lineup after his stint in the minors. The Minnesota Twins have had to navigate strange waters with their two most highly regarded former prospects.

Indians 5, Twins 2: Lindor hits walk-off HR in 9th

Sano HR ties it up in 9th, but Lindor strikes again Twins starter Jake Ordozzi had an alright day on the mound, giving up 2 runs, (1 earned) over 4 2⁄3 innings pitched. Cleveland got on the board first after a Francisco Lindor double, and and error by Twins centerfielder Jake Cave lead to a run. It was not the prettiest outing for the Twins on the field, with 3 errors charged to the team for the day. The Twins tied it up in the 4th on doubles by Miguel Sano and Logan Forsythe. Forsythe has been hitting well, and is now 9 for 21 since joining the team. Odorizzi was pulled in the 5th after...

Indians 6, Twins 2: Bullpen’d

Also Trevor May’s triumphant return. Kyle Gibson, professional mustache grower, started for the Dozierless Twins today opposite Trevor Bauer. Twins fans took some time off from exploring the pros of nihilism to huddle together and watch a clash between the two best teams in the Al Central. Wait, is that right? Wow. It is rough to be mid-western. The Twins got on the board first with some small ball that would make Tom Kelly proud. Miguel Sano started the bottom of the second with a double. Ehire Adrianza got him to third with the power of bunting and then Jake Cave sac’ed up a...

Twins promote Miguel Sano to Triple-A Rochester

The promotion is hopefully a sign that the wayward slugger is nearing a return to the majors. After spending four days in the Dominican Republic due to an illness in the family, it appears Miguel Sano will not be returning to High-A Ft. Myers Miracle. Instead, the Twins have sent their wayward slugger up to Triple-A Rochester, where he will be reunited with Byron Buxton. According to LEN3 at the Star Tribune, Sano will not be in the Rochester lineup Friday night, but could play Saturday. Sano played in 19 games for the Ft. Myers Miracle, hitting .328/.442/.453 with two home runs. Over his...
