    I hope that the injury is minor.
    I didn't get to see him run the bases, but I definitely can say he has a strong arm.

    I found a website on this and it's a little worrisome -- http://sportsmedicine.about.com/od/k..._Band_Pain.htm

    Hopefully the training staff is up to speed on this, and can refrain from its customary use of leeches and voodoo dancing.

    Maybe the error got reversed -- I am looking at today's box score and see the hit and the 2 RBI, but no errors.

    Hit his 19th home run tonight and walked twice. He's been hitting well since the All-Star break and hitting .300 in his last ten games.

    After going 0-2 with a walk in Game 1 of the Snappers double-header tonight, Sano went 3-4 with his 20th home run and four RBI in game 2.

    In his last 8 games, he is 9-23 (.391) with a double, a triple, two HR and 9 RBI. In that span, he has also walked nine times and struck out four times.

    How about errors in that time? I don't remember seeing any in boxscore... I could be mistaken. It's really good to see him picking it up now that his 19th birthday slump is wearing off.

    He had his 33rd last night, but I think he's only had maybe two over the last couple of weeks.

    Sano is hitting well again, .371 over his last 10 games. In his last six games, he is 9-24 (.375) with three doubles, three homers and 10 RBI. He has homered in back-to-back games. I was at the game on Sunday when he hit HR #22. He got a fastball away and drilled it over the fence in right-center field. The fence is probably 370 away, and there is a sign above it. The ball went over that sign too. He hit #23 on Monday night. He did still strike out some over the four games I saw. I thought he did well to lay off some tough sliders down and away. He just-missed a few curve balls. He doesn't miss many fastballs. My opinion of his defense was that he looked much-more prepared pre-pitch. He's only had 2-3 errors since his 3-4 error game 5-6 weeks ago. He also has a rocket for an arm. He runs the bases well and has surprisingly good speed.

    After getting ejected last night, Miguel Sano hit his 24th home run tonight and drove in his 90th run.

    To clarify, he was ejected in one game and then hit a homerun in his next?

    Because I was picturing a Bobby Valentine-esque Groucho disguise situation when I first read this, which I'm pretty sure should automatically bump Sano up about a dozen spots on prospect lists.

    Correct... ejected one night, homered the following night. Ha!

    Hit home run #26 tonight. ESPN.com's Keith Law tweeted that it was a blast over the batters' eye in centerfield.

    On the season, he is now hitting .262/.382/.526 (.907) with 25 doubles, four triples, 26 home runs and 92 RBI. In 499 plate appearances, he has 75 walks and 132 strikeouts. He sits at 39 errors on the season at 3B.

    I suspect if you look real hard when in the DR, you'll find someone age 19 who's name is Miguel Sano. If in doing so you you also come across some Jeans, you might want to check for letters and wired payments from Florida, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

    But then the name thing is always funky within the hispanic culture. A friend of mine from CR introduced herself by one name, then starting using another. The maternal/paternal surnames are pretty inconsistent in the culture from our perspective.
