With the departure of first baseman C.J. Cron to the Detroit Tigers, the Minnesota Twins needed a new everyday first baseman. Whether they were going to sign a first baseman or they were just going to move utility man Marwin Gonzalez to play everyday first was the question. The answer would show up when the Twins signed then free agent third baseman Josh Donaldson to a four year contract. Sano is going to move over to first.
Sano is no stranger to the position previously playing 31 games at first in his career. Miguel actually welcomed changing positions telling Donaldson before he signed that he would only play first base for Donaldson. It looks like Sano is willing to do everything he needs to do to be help this team be successful.
Even though Sano has some experience playing first, there is always room for him to improve. So who better than one of the greatest Twins first baseman of all time, 2020 Canadian and Twins Hall of Fame inductee Justin Morneau, to give him some pointers. Morneau will be inducted into the Twins Hall of Fame on May 23rd.
How will Sano fare in his first full season at a different position? If he stays healthy through out the season how many home runs will he hit? Let us know your thoughts.
