Twins rule out Miguel Sano against Yankees

Twins rule out Miguel Sano against Yankees

The rest of the team doesn't care about the history against the Yankees.

But there's a reason that the Twins have +205 betting odds and the Yankees are -240 favorites, via OddsShark. That's not really big or surprising news.

Miguel Sano, the Twins' hulking third baseman, was left off their roster for the one-game playoff, which begins 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.

Ervin Santana (16-8) will be taking the mound for Minnesota with Luis Severino (14-6) pitching for NY.

Luis Severino will be taking the mound for the Yankees on Tuesday in his postseason debut, but like the rest his teammates, he's not feeling the pressure.

Greg Bird, who started the season as the team's No.3 hitter, finally made it back from a frustrating four months dealing with a nagging ankle injury to post eight homers and 25 RBI in 29 games after August 26. However, the Twins will fall just short of making that happen.




"Here's why I think the Yankees can make noise: No one can shorten the game like Joe Girardi can with this bullpen", Boone said. However, during the last month leading up to the postseason, Santana has a 2-1 record to go along with a 2.83 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 6.0 K/9 while giving up 3 HR in 28.2 IP - better than his season numbers, but not by much. (How 'bout that?) What does that mean? We played a lot of meaningful games. Anyone can make that game-changing play or get the game-winning hit. David Robertson, acquired in midseason from the Chicago White Sox, has a 1.03 ERA through 30 games; Tommy Kahnle, another player added by Cashman this year, has also impressed. However, the American League Central ball club could welcome back its starting third baseman if the Twins are able to overcome the surging "Bronx Bombers" on Tuesday evening in NY. The Indians had the best record in the American League this season, going 102-60. They could be forced to bring in Jose Berrios in relief.

"It got quiet here early", Castro said.

Tuesday night's victor moves on, while the loser is done and hangs up the cleats until 2018 Spring Training. Buxton shows that he can be one of the best outfielders in the game one day. Sano may return for the ALDS, if the Twins advance, but he's out for the Wild Card game for sure. This is the regular season now.

But if he plays Tuesday night, he will be the designated hitter. How fun would it have been to see Miguel Sano face fireballer Aroldis Chapman late in a game and see Miguel connect on one of those 100+ miles per hour fastballs? Twins won two of three games vs. the Yankees in Minnesota from July 17-19. They are supposed to win this game because it's in their park, on their turf and in front of their fans.

"Absolutely", Boone said. "I can see it".
