Twins prospect Miguel Sano is fully recovered from the Tommy John elbow surgery that caused him to miss all of last season.
Director of minor league operations Brad Steil told Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that Sano “is doing pretty much everything” and “is able to do everything in the workouts.”
Now the big question is whether he’ll be able to re-establish himself as a third baseman long term, because even before the elbow injury there were questions about Sano’s massive size possibly forcing him to an outfield corner or first base.
Last year, before the injury, Sano ranked as a top-10 prospect according to both Baseball America and MLB.com. Even after missing an entire season he remains a consensus top-20 prospect and if everything goes according to plan he could be hitting in the middle of the Twins’ lineup at some point this year.
