Miguel Sano Promoted to Triple-A Rochester

In 19 games with the Miracle, Sano hit .328/.442/.453 with two home runs and two doubles. He posted a 21 to 13 strike out to walk ratio. Sano played 10 games at third base and nine games as the designated hitter. He committed one error in 23 chances at third.
His time at the big league level this year had been a mess. He was struggling at the plate by hitting .203/.270/.405 with a 66 to 14 strikeout to walk ratio. He had more than twice as many strikeouts as hits.
At the time of his demotion, Derek Falvey said the team wasn’t “going to follow the traditional view.” He went on to say, “We wanted to take a step back and blank canvas this a bit and say, ‘What do we think the best next steps are for him?’… We can do a lot of things with the facility we have here, around strength and conditioning and the work you can do from that side.”
Step 1 in the process was to head to Fort Myers and restart his once promising career. From there, Step 2 is to head to Rochester and show he is ready to start transitioning to the big league level.
