Minnesota Twins: Four Potential All-Stars for the Twins
Miguel Sano – 3B (.301/.405/.601)
Sano is the definition of an All-Star and an MVP candidate. He leads the team in runs, hits, home runs, walks, and RBIs. The next closest player in RBIs on the team has twenty less. He also leads the AL in RBIs while being top ten in almost every category.
He still has a tendency to strikeout (he is third in the AL) but has also shown patience being fourth in walks in the AL. With his improved patience he has been able to wait for his pitch and the Twins have benefited from that.
The most glaring issue with Sano was thought to be his defense. However, Miguel has shown that he can handle third base and occasionally making an amazing play. He made the quick decision that started the Twins triple play against the Angels.
The latest released All-Star voting had Sano narrowly ahead of Manny Machado who has had a subpar year. This could be the first year of many more with Miguel starting at the hot corner.
