Miguel Sano‘s Recovery
When Miguel Sano went down with a torn UCL, things seemed bleak. Buxton was already injured, and Eddie Rosario was set to serve a 50 game suspension for violating the league’s policy on banned substances. Sano’s Tommy John surgery completed the trifecta.
Fast forward to July, and things don’t seem all that bad. While it would absolutely be preferable to see Sano preparing himself for a Big League call up, we can take solace in the fact that his recovery is progressing nicely. He’s been cleared to throw, and while he won’t see any game action during the season, it seems probable that he’ll man the hot corner in the Arizona Fall League. By all indications, he’ll be ready for spring training next year.
