Twins prospect Miguel Sano hit a home run, was ejected before crossing the plate
Miguel Sano has yet to play a single game at Target Field, but that doesn't mean we don't have our hopes up that he'll make the Twins' roster in 2015. The Dominican native and power-hitting infield prospect was invited to Spring Training last year, but missed the entire season after tearing his ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.
But, Sano's absence hasn't stopped his legend from growing.
Recently, one of Sano's former teammates -- infielder/outfielder/blogger AJ Pettersen -- took to TwinsDaily.com to share a tale with readers about the time that Sano hit a home run and was ejected while rounding the bases. The anecdote starts a week prior to the ejection when Sano, Pettersen and the Doug Mientkiewicz-managed Fort Myers Miracle were playing the Palm Beach Cardinals in Class A ball:
Five days later, the clubs faced off again and some of those involved hadn't quite gotten over the original incident.
Sano added some commentary as he left the batter's box, prompting his ejection. Couple that with Sano's David Ortiz-style meander around the bases on a homer hit in July of that year and it's easy to see why we all have our hopes up for Sano to crack into the bigs next summer.
