Miguel Angel Sano Sweepstakes

Randy LermanContributor IJuly 8, 2009

Along with the Orioles, the Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates have shown interest in this international talent. The Orioles have been said to see Sano as a first round pick if he were in the MLB draft, so they may offer up a deal higher than both that of Brian Matusz and this year's top pick, Matt Hobgood.

One of the main factors here is the confirmation that Sano is indeed 16 years old. Once the age situation is investigated and straightened out, the sweepstakes between the teams will heat up.

I think that Sano could sure up the shortstop position in the future while it will be held down by Cesar Izturis in the present. A last thing of note, it was mentioned somewhere that Sano has been compared to Miguel Cabrera, which in case you haven't watched baseball in the past 9 years is a great compliment.

More news will be posted on Miguel Angel Sano as this situation continues.
