Another terrific Berardino article discusses how Paul Molitor can relate to Miguel Sano. Molitor was the first position player to have Tommy John surgery, 30 years ago...

Since then, many have, including Carl Crawford and Shin-Soo Choo.

Molitor's got some great quotes in this article.

Berardino adds such a depth of coverage to the Twins. So glad the PP hired him last year ... and he helps keep other reporters on their toes, too!! Really elevates the level of reporting.

And Molitor should be a great help to Sano in many ways.

This actually is a bit concerning:

He is likely to have the surgery sometime in the next month; a date hadn’t been determined as of Saturday morning.


I just hope that they do not wait until April to do it. Give the kid a week break and do it...

I guess I don't know, but if there's any swelling, they'll need to wait a little bit. I'm sure they won't put it off too long.

Matt Holliday had this surgery done at this stage in his career -- in '01 before he reached the majors.

And Sano seeks out Lester Oliveros, too:

I'm glad he's going to get a chance to go back to the DR and see his Mom. A little mental break before the grind of rehab sounds like a good thing to me.

Can we stop with the amateur doctoring going around these parts? His 2014 season is done, not sure what a few weeks makes a difference at this point as it is an 8 month rehab at most anyways.
