The Twins announced on Tuesday that third baseman Miguel Sanó has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 28, with a strained left hamstring. Infielder Gregorio Petit has been recalled from Triple-A Rochester.

It’s not clear exactly when Sanó suffered the injury. Presumably, it was on the 27th when he went 1-for-5 in a 15-9 loss to the Reds.

This season, Sanó is batting .213/.289/.450 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 90 plate appearances.

While Sanó has been absent, Eduardo Escobar has shifted from shortstop to third base, and Ehire Adrianza took over at shortstop. That figures to be the case until Sanó returns.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
