Twins slugger Miguel Sano suffered a sprained right ankle last Saturday in Oakland and hasn’t played since. Or, hadn’t played since. Sano is back in the Minnesota starting lineup on Wednesday night at Angel Stadium, batting cleanup and serving as the Twins’ designated hitter in the second game of an important three-game series versus Anaheim.

Angels center fielder Mike Trout also sat out of Tuesday night’s series opener and is also returning to action on Wednesday night.

Sano has batted .326/.434/.558 with two home runs and nine RBI over his first 13 major league games.

The 22-year-old top prospect was promoted from Double-A Chattanooga on July 2.
