Twins Sign Miguel Sano!!
In news that shocked me, and has me even more excited as the Twins second game against the Tigers is set to begin. I just saw a rotoworld.com report indicating that the Twins have signed Dominican SS Miguel Angel Sano with a signing bonus believed to be $3.15 million. Apparently his age, 16, is still a question mark, but the Twins made an offer that Sano signed.
This is the big name on the international market the last couple of months (until Aroldis Chapman came along, of course!). The big, strong shortstop is believed to be a tremendous prospect. Obviously it will be four to seven years before we could see him playing at Target Field, but this is a huge sign for the Twins. It shows their willingness to spend and compete with the big boys. Isnít that really all we can ask.
Feel free to leave your comments.
