So lets get this straight. Someone allegedly assaults Sano's brother and then wants to blackmail Sano after he has committed the assault? So apart from everything else, the story makes no logical sense.

At least this season it makes no difference whether Sano can play or not. Most games will be played like exhibitions anyway if there are any games.

Please do not let this Sano story go off on a broader tangent —thanks everyone.

It sounds like Sano is still in DR.I wonder if this will affect his visa coming back to US for season, assuming there is one.I also wonder if Twins will hold off on him playing until more questions are answered by authorities.

***Moderator Note***

 

This thread needs to stay on topic, and that topic is Miguel Sano and this still fairly vague ordeal. I understand there tends to be an urge to pick sides when the situation is sensitive, but we don't even have a clear view of what the situation is.

I was just glad to see that the alleged victim was a male.

If Sano’s brother did get sexually assaulted by this man, I honestly don’t care what Miguel did to him. 

This comment makes me feel very uneasy.

The alleged victim is a child. This allegation is unspeakable regardless of gender.

I don't believe this is true, but this is all a bit difficult to follow. The man who was kidnapped, assaulted and threatened was named in the report (Raudy Omar Sanchez de la Cruz), which would be very unusual for a minor. The child mentioned is Sano's relative, the alleged victim of Sanchez de la Cruz, who is not named.

 

I just did a sweep for any new information regarding this story and came up empty handed. There are some newer stories published, such as this Associated Press report available on KARE 11's site, but they're all rehashing the details of the original report.

 

There's a hearing set for June 25, not sure there will be anything else reported between now and then.

Sorry Tom- I misinterpreted the post I quoted. I was referring to the part of the rumored child sexual abuse. We can all agree THAT is unspeakable.

Got it, and agreed. This whole story is very difficult to follow, so I just wanted to include that clarification just in case the way any of the previous information presented was misleading.

As noted earlier, strange things seem to happen to Sano when he is home.A fear I have is that his diet is not being monitored and he will return back in the states ballooned and out of shape AGAIN.Then the Twins will have to start at ground zero AGAIN to get him back to where he needs to be.

Keep in mind I said if the sexual assault allegations are true. I guess I’m just sick of child molesters and pedophiles getting away with crimes. In my state, a former state legislator who used his power to sexually assault high schoolers (and has been accused by three different people with credible accusations) just got elected as mayor in his hometown. Those kids will have to deal with the pain this event has caused them for the rest of their lives. I don’t personally feel bad for anyone who would hurt children in this way.

I don't condone vigilante justice.

Quite the slugger. The Twins made a smart move with three years and out.

I would venture to guess that he was strongly encouraged to cancel any sort of press conference by the Twins.
