Sano's Return Is Critical for Twins
The Twins called Sano up in July 2015 as an extra source of offense for the season's stretch run, and he immediately delivered. He finished with a .269 batting average, 18 home runs, 52 RBI and a .915 OPS in 80 games in his rookie campaign.
He even drilled 12 long balls in his first 45 contests at the major league level and joined some impressive company in the process, per ESPN Stats & Info:
Prior to the injury, Sano hit 11 home runs and 27 RBI. He's proved to be the most dangerous part of the Twins' lineup, and it will be tough for them to replace him, even for a short amount of time.
If the Twins plan on contending in the American League Central this season, they need Sano healthy for the remainder of the season.
