Future Watch: Miguel Sano Baseball Rookie Cards, Minnesota Twins – Collectors have been keeping track of Miguel Sano for a few years now. He finally made his MLB debut on July 2nd with the Minnesota Twins and now it’s time to let the hitting begin.
The 6-4, 230lb, third baseman has played in previous MLB Futures Games and now he has 37 big league at-bats under his belt.
Earlier this year, while recovering from Tommy John surgery in the minors, he whacked 15 homers in 66 games. He is now hitting a cool .378 in the early going for the Twins.
At just 22 years of age, the fact that he has 2 homers 8 RBI and 4 doubles in such a short time, bodes well for this power hitter. At this point, team management is easing him into his natural infield position. With the long throw from third base, they want to coddle his elbow for awhile. That means, that for the time being, he will be getting more starts at designated hitter.
Sano hails from the shortstop factory know as San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. This talented player first signed his international free agent deal in 2009. Five years later, the Twins have a potential franchise player.
He hit his first major league home run on July 7th. Here is that highlight:
His first officially designated rookie cards have yet to be released due to his mid-season call-up. There is a chance, however, that he will be included in late season releases from Topps.
Sano has several cards in 2015 baseball card sets including:
- 2015 Bowman Draft
- 2015 Bowman Chrome
- 2015 Bowman Inception
- 2015 Panini Prizm
- 2015 Topps Pro Debut
- 2015 Panini Elite
By the end of the season people will be talking about this phenom. By next year, he just might get into his first mid-summer classic. Probably the first of many more to come.
