Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano is swinging a hot stick heading into the team's ALDS duel against the Yankees. It has been a roller coaster career for the 26-year-old but the slugger is trending upwards after slashing .288/.395/.671 in the month of September. Over his last 47 games, Sano has 16 home runs and 42 runs batted in. Sano will be a player to watch against Yankees left-handed starter, James Paxton in Game 1. Sano posted a .651 slugging percentage this season against left-handed pitching with 11 home runs in only 109 at-bats.
Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals. The Twins have already clinched the division title, so they have no need to play their starters. Sano will get a routine day off here. Luis Arraez will bat leadoff and play third base versus righty Glenn Sparkman. Arraez has been reliable all season, but seems to be in a slump lately, so he can be ignored in DFS contests.
Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in a 9-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday in the second game of a doubleheader. Sano's first career slam was a big one as he broke a 5-5 tie in the eighth inning. The veteran power hitter is batting .239 with 28 homers, 65 runs, and 65 RBI in just 93 games. Sano is starting to heat up at the plate, hitting .280 with two homers and seven RBI over his past seven games. Keep him active for the series finale against Cleveland on Sunday.
