The Dominican player is recovering rhythm after suffering from coronavirus and hopes to be ready for the first day of the season.
The Minnesota Twins are preparing to debut in the 2020 season of the MLB next Friday against the Chicago White Sox. For that match, the team led by Rocco Baldelli hope to have ready Miguel Sanó, who saw action on Sunday and came out six innings.
The 27-year-old Dominican player said he felt good after suffering from coronavirus and missing a large part of the training sessions, but accepted that he hopes to continue picking up pace in the week prior to the start of the campaign.
“As far as the routine is concerned, I’m halfway there. Now I’m going to work watching machine launches. There are still four days left for the first game, “Sanó said in statements collected by Las Mayores.
He added: “Probably in the next few days I will give several bombs and feel better. I hope it is only a daily progress to be ready for Opening Day.”
The San Pedro de Macorís-born hit 2-0 with a negotiated passport and a pair of strikeouts this Sunday. His coach was quite satisfied.
“We should focus on not trying harder than we should, to get him into shape in the batting box. There is no magic formula. You need some time. You must see the pitches. You must swings and at the same time feel what your body does. Physically, his agility looks pretty good. His body has always been well maintained, “said Baldelli.
