Miguel Angel Sano to sign with Minnesota Twins
The top prospect in the Dominican Republic, 16-year old Miguel Angel Sano, has agreed to sign with the Minnesota Twins, agent Rob Plummer told the Post-Gazette.
Sano will sign for a $3.15 million bonus.
“I’m very thankful to get this chance to sign with the Twins,” Sano said. “I’m going to work very hard to try to get to the majors in two years.”
Sano, who currently plays shortstop, has been heavily pursued this year by many major league baseball teams. He currently is measured at 6’3″ and draws comparisons to Gary Sheffield and Wily Mo Pena with his superb bat. If he continues to grow, he will most likely be moved to one of the corners or to the outfield.
Also included in the $3.15 million deal is his choice between Miley Cirus or Ali Lohan.
