Default Miguel Sano with 5 Homers in his last 5 games

It will be interesting to see where Sano ends up on tomorrow's BA Hot Sheet, but 5 HR's in 5 games for the week has to put him in the top three. Those Miguel Cabrera comparison might be coming true. Sano's 15 HR's lead the Appalachian League.

A lot of local writers always say that watching him play is like watching a man child out there. Hope he becomes a stud!

I hope not, hopefully he stays sober

Sounds like he's going to have to move to a corner outfield spot and he still only has a .335 OBP but definitely 40+ HR potential. Hopefully the Twins take it slow with him and let him develop.

Good for him, and I do agree hopefully the twins dont rush him through the system and let him develop into the player he can be

He has 64 K's in 210 AB's (53 Games) and only 18 Walks, so he is definitely very raw. Vlad Guerrero never really took Walks though, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. It isn't looking good for him to stay at Third Base either, but then again, Derek Jeter and Eric Chavez were considered defensive liabilities when they were in their teens, so only time will tell if he has to move to First Base. Regardless, it looks like his bat will get him to the Big Leagues for a long time.

The Twins have Mauer playing RF tonight. Maybe this will leave 1B open for him in a few years

Well, no Homer today, but he did go 3 for 5 with two Doubles and 4 RBI. Not sure what pitchers or whatnot dominated this week, but it's hard to see anyone beating out Sano for the #1 spot on the Hot Sheet.
