Twins recall star prospect Miguel Sano from Double-A

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Even the few Minnesota Twins fans who turned up in Kansas City on Thursday night were quick to recognize Miguel Sano, the strapping slugger standing on the top step of the dugout.

They were quick to toss him some balls for autographs, too.

One of the prized prospects in all of baseball, Sano was recalled from Double-A Chattanooga before the Twins opened a four-game series against the Royals. The big slugger from the Dominican Republic was the designated hitter and batting sixth on Thursday night.
