Woohoo! So exciting. I'm sure they said, "Oh, we'll wait until the All-Star Break". Until he blasts two more home runs in a game. He forced their hand, for sure. So exciting.

Congratualations to Sano! Since there were no comments in the Kris Bryant thread that he was "too big to play third", hopefully that issue won't be raised for Sano.

They waited until the half of the season was over for Fort Myers (& they clinched a spot in the postseason btw.) A+ All Star break (Now) and not MLB :)

Happy to see these guys in AA. The Rock Cats are going to Reading this month, so I think I will be there more than once. Just hope that Meyer is up and running by then...

With Morales moving up as well, might there be "the Buxton move" to A+ announced after tomorrow's FSN=televised game?

I'd bet money that will be the case. The Twins are doing a lot to promote Buxton's likeness. Would there be any chance that game would be televised if he weren't there? Doubt it.

When CR clinch or are eliminated from the playoffs they will promote him.

Correct. I think the kernels magic number is 5 with 6 games to play.

Don't think so. Kernels only 1.5 up with 7 to play.

Either way, there's only a week left in the first half. Why not just promote Buxton after the completion of the half at the All-Star break? What's the difference? It's marginal, in my opinion — would be a game, maybe two games earlier, but then 5 days off before the second half.

They must feel pretty good about Rosario at second to move him to AA. A good sign, for sure.

Great news, it makes it possible if any/all of them do very well at AA, they could get a look in spring training for major league jobs.

The Double A boxscore got a whole hell of a lot more interesting.

Dozier makes that pill easier to swallow.

He's one of us. 31, a Hibbing Community College recruit. All-around good guy.

Sure, Miguel Sano pounded a few hits against single-A pitching. I'll give him that.

Now let's get real, the kid doesn't have the plate discipline and killer instinct to make a dent against AA pitchers. He's gonna be facing guys that can spin a curve over the outside corner, or just off it. He's gonna see real changeups, ones with the same arm action as a good fastball.

Can he hit the good stuff? At 20 years old? I have my doubts.

Get your hacks in, Miguel, and study hard at third base. We'll see you in a Twins uniform in a couple years.

This is satire, right?

He just did ridiculously unprecedented things in a true pitcher's league. In a league which usually is fortunate to have ONE guy OPS over .900 and one or two guys with a SLG over .500, Sano leaves to go to AA with a .1079 OPS line and a .655 SLG---yep, ridiculous numbers.

I think there's a fighting chance he's going to make more than a couple "dents" in Eastern League OF walls and AA pitcher's ERA marks.

Until the teams in AA get a good scouting report on him, I don't see why it would be that much different. Once they find a way to get him out, which, is proving extremely difficult, he will have to adjust. Many said it coming into the season, his bat is practically ready. It is pretty hard to perform any better than this kid just has in half a season.
Do or do not. There is no try.

Votto
Kemp
Lind


These guys were at the top of the hitting charts in this league in recent times and their numbers weren't anywhere even close to what Sano has put up this year.
