Miguel Sano to undergo surgery on left leg

Miguel Sano to undergo surgery on left leg”

Sano (lower leg) will undergo surgery on his left shin November 13 in NY. He missed the team's workout before the A.L. Wild Card game in NY, and was not even on the postseason roster for that game, which the Twins lost to the Yankees.

Sano had been thinking about having surgery for the past few weeks, and finally made a decision to undergo the procedure after continuing to experience discomfort in his lower leg. He'll have the surgery in NY on November 13.

Sano will have a rod inserted into his troublesome shin, and he's facing a 6-to-8 week recovery time.

Twins pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Fort Myers, Fla., on February 14, with the first full-squad spring training workout set for February 19, the team announced Thursday.

It was overplayed in some corners of the Twin Cities media in direct regard to this shin injury, but Sano's weight and physical shape have been issues. If that holds, it would have him back in time for spring training in February. Sano hit.264 with 28 home runs and 77 RBIs in 114 games.

Sano all along considered surgery a possibility, and he told one reporter as much after the Twins season ended.

I have to credit Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Minneapolis Star Tribune for this, but he's right on.
