In wrapping up the Twins’ Top 30 Prospects for our Prospect Handbook—and if you’re reading something called the Prospect Blog, you really should buy the book—I had to make sure all the players’ vitals were correct. Height, weight, signing scouts (that’s an important one ’round here), that kind of thing.
Only one player required a follow-up e-mail to make sure I got the name right. But word from the Twins today is that their $3.15 million infielder from the Dominican Republic will officially be known as Miguel Sano. There had been some reports that Sano was going to use his mother’s name, Jean, as his surname. But one Twins official e-mailed back today that he’s chosen Sano. Considering Sano has gone through a rigorous investigation to sign his contract out of the Dominican this year, the Twins are relieved to have a name that they have confidence in, and that Miguel Sano won’t one day be revealed to be, say, Juan Manuel Gonzalez.
"The one good thing about this is that there was never any question about his identity," the official said.
