    Sano Tweaks Elbow, Will Get Examined

    http://blogs.twincities.com/twins/20...-set-for-exam/

    See Mike Berardino's terrific blog with all the details and quotes from Rob Antony.

    Sano tweaked his elbow yesterday making an off-balanced throw to 1B. He came out of the intrasquad game and is set to be re-examined this afternoon.

    I agree with Antony in saying that they had to get him into game action to see how it would respond. He had no problems throughout the throwing program and making regular throws. he had made a couple of plays earlier in the game yesterday.

    Hopefully it is nothing, but obviously at this point, there is new concern.

    Anything that prevents him from hitting .415 with 8 HR's this spring is probably a good thing. If we send him down after that the fringe fans and even some real fans will go nuts. I have no doubt he will be a productive major leaguer starting at some point this year, but if we rush him I feel like equaling Hicks #'s early might not be all that automatic.

    Might as well mark him down for Tommy John.

    Expect to see him in June of 2015.

    For Sano this sucks but for the Twins perhaps a blessing. Better for him to have this issue taken care of now instead of during one of the 6 years we have him for sure on our team. It is unfortunate but hopefully will work out well in the long run for everyone.

    I believe TJ surgery for players is a faster recovery time. He might be able to play in Sept or early the AFL (if he were eligible).

    Yeah but knowing the Twins they will try to avoid the surgery only to do it 3 months later. Then he has to prove he can hit in the minor leagues before being promoted. So my timeline is probably optimistic.

    Scouting Report: Tools - Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
    Spring Training Regular since 2011.

    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.

    Let's wait until the exam. No blessing at all since many 3b never get this injury.

    Should have done it in December. For position player he could have maybe played half a season. Doesn't really need an elbow to play first anyway does he?

    I had, what I thought was, a completely unjustified bad feeling about this over the offseason. I'm sad to hear it may have been justified.

    But it is another valuable lesson about counting chickens......

    As soon as I read this, I figured there would be folks on TD criticizing the Twins handling of Sano's health care. A bit predictable.
    I hope Mr. Sano is ok with rest, and if he has surgery, all goes well, and he can get back on track ASAP.
