– Miguel Sano didn’t have any missteps in right field. That may have had something to do with the fact that no balls were hit in his direction. Nevertheless, no news is good news right? Paul Molitor was keeping a close eye on Sano during the game.
– The remainder of the Twins pre-arbitration agreements have come out as per the Pioneer Press: “Set to make the big-league minimum of $507,500 if they reach the majors this year: pitchers J.T. Chargois, Pat Dean, Yorman Landa, Mason Melotakis, Alex Meyer, Taylor Rogers, Randy Rosario and Mike Strong along with catcher John Hicks and outfielders Max Kepler and Adam Brett Walker II.”
