Miguel Sano
26-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
Minnesota Twins
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Sano took a big step backward last year, eventually getting sent to the minors for almost six weeks in an effort to rebuild his confidence and conditioning. He needed offseason surgery to insert a metal rod into his leg, and likely returned before working his way into game shape. Sano also missed time due to a hamstring injury, and hit just .203/.270/.405 through 37 games. He was surprisingly optioned to High-A amid his struggles and returned to the majors in late July, but still could not get on track, hitting just .195/.294/.390. Sano has prodigious power and an outstanding walk rate, but strikes out too frequently (career-worst 38.5% last season). The Twins still view him as a third baseman, although advanced defensive metrics suggest he would be best deployed at DH. Sano has as much raw power as any player in the game, but his rocky 2018 illustrates how low his floor is and gives pause to forecasting success in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
