There will be an injury by the time he is called up to clarify the choice is my guess. 

 

If there isn't an injury... whoever has options should check apartment.com for apartments in the Rochester area. 

 

As for... Sano looking like Sano looked last year... He also has an option left and I'd be willing to use it. 

 

Go Get Em Sano... Take control of your career with both hands please. 

 

I thought we burned his last option last season... hope you're right about that, b/c they can keep him down as long as needed if he's not hitting.

He was added to the 40-man in November 2014, but I THINK his short stint in Rochester in 2016 was injury-related and was not done by exercising an option. He played not at all in AAA in 2017. So I think the exercises were only 2015 and 2018.

Nothing is impossible for the one who doesn't have to do the work.

The big question with Miggy is whether can regain his rookie year approach. If not it’s not important when he comes back

Long enough to get another year of control?

The source I rely on says he has 3 years and 66 days of service time. I forget what being on the IL does to service time - if it counts, then he'd need to spend 2+ months in the minors, and then there are probably arcane rules on top of that which I'm not aware of. Bottom line for me is to not try to play that game on him ... but who knows? (Well, FalVine know.)

Every team likely has assets and liabilities within their team, when comparing all players to each other player on the team. As the way the Twins position players are currently constructed, here is the way I view them, and will include Sano on this even though he is not currently on the 25 man. To improve the team, you need to turn liabilities into assets.

 

Assets - in no particular order:

 

Rosario

Buxton

Keplar

Polanco

Garver

The Turtle

Cruz

Marwin

Schoop

 

Liabilities:

 

Castro

Adrianza

 

On the bubble:

Need to establish themselves

 

Cron

Cave

Sano

I could understand The Turtle being here.

IL time definitely counts for MLB service time provided the player was on the active MLB roster when he was put on IL, which Sano was.
