Twins ac­ti­vate Sano from DL

Waterloo Region Record - - SPORTS -

MINNEAPOLIS — Min­nesota Twins slug­ger Miguel Sano is com­ing back just in time for the Ma­jor League Baseball play­offs. The Twins ac­ti­vated their all-star third base­man on Fri­day, in time for the sea­son’s fi­nal se­ries against Detroit. Sano has missed 38 games with a stress re­ac­tion af­ter foul­ing a ball off his left shin, and had been on the 10-day dis­abled list. Sano is hit­ting .267 this sea­son with 28 home runs and 77 RBIs. De­spite his ab­sence, the Twins caught fire in Au­gust and clinched the Amer­i­can League’s sec­ond wild-card spot this week. They play the Yan­kees on Tues­day in New York. Ac­ti­vat­ing Sano makes him el­i­gi­ble for the play­off ros­ter, which has yet to be an­nounced.
