After blasting 2 HRs tonight making it 3 already this season I thought i would start a thread. This kid is a complete specimen
Not certain that "complete" is the right word. I mean, he's got amazing power, but he's got a long way to go. He's the most exciting prospect the Twins system has had since Mauer/Morneau/Kubel. If he can learn to put the ball in play more, he will be special!

"Sano oppo bomb into the wind. Wow moment."
"second home run for Sano. He's hit neither squarely."
"If not, awfully close QT @MnkysThrwngDrts: That's 80 power, right? RT @Kevin_Goldstein: second home run for Sano. He's hit neither squarely."
Scouting Report: 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)

My tweet from about 20 minutes ago:
SSS Fun: Sano started yesterday 0-1 and was hitting .091 (1-11). Since then, he is 4-5 (1B, 3B, 2-HR) and is now hitting .313 (5-16).
I just hope that he can do this through every level, and not fizz away once he hits AA ball or something like that. Sano, Rosario, Hicks, and Wimmers are my 4 Favorite Minor-Leaguers.

Not to take anything away from 2 homers - but the wind was howling out to right field ( 25 to 40mph ). I'm surprised that there weren't a few more hit.
From Kevin Goldstein's tweet, it sounded like he hit them into the wind, meaning the wind was blowing in from right.
