Twins GM Thad Levine noted this week that Miguel Sano brought a "generous carriage" into spring training.
In other not-as-kind words, the 24-year-old slugger put on extra weight this winter while mostly incapacitated due to a lingering stress reaction in his left shin. The injury led to Sano missing a number of weeks down the stretch last season along with the Twins' big American League Wild Card Game matchup against the Yankees. There were already concerns about Sano's conditioning level in 2017 and he is still awaiting word on MLB's investigation into a sexual assault claim against him. He may be facing a suspension to open the 2018 regular season. Perhaps he could use that time off to get in better shape. Feb 21 - 3:26 PM

Pirates dismissed Rene Gayo as Director of Latin American Scouting after an investigation found he received improper payments, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The report states that Gayo received improper payment from at least one Mexican Summer League team for the sale of a player to the Pirates. Gayo is still being investigated and could still receive punishment, but Rosenthal says that the Pirates will not receive any form of punishment. Gayo became infamous after the release of Pelotero; a documentary that focused on the recruitment of Miguel Sano and Juan Carlos Bautista.

Joe Mauer (back) could miss the Twins' entire weekend series against the Orioles.

Mauer would then have another four days off for the All-Star break. It doesn't sound like the Twins are planning to place Mauer on the disabled list, but if they do, he could return as early as next Saturday. Unless Kennys Vargas is called up from Triple-A, Miguel Sano will likely handle first base in Mauer's absence.

Joe Mauer (back) is not in the Twins' lineup Thursday against the Orioles.

Mauer will get a day to heal up while he battles back spasms. Miguel Sano will draw a rare start at first base with Eduardo Escobar filling in at the hot corner. Mauer's fantasy contributions are pretty minimal at this stage of his career, though he still sports a respectable .286 average over 276 at-bats this season.

Joe Mauer is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

No injury concern, here, just a normal rest day for Mauer. Miguel Sano will move over to first from the hot corner, with Eduardo Escobar working at third in Sano's place.

Matt Boyd was ejected from Saturday's game against the Twins after throwing behind Miguel Sano in the fifth inning.

This was retaliation from earlier in the game when JaCoby Jones was struck in the face on a pitch by Justin Haley. Sano had words for Boyd after the brushback pitch and was quickly ejected himself as both benches cleared. Boyd had a mediocre day on the mound, yielding five hits, two runs and three walks in only 4 1/3 innings. He also tallied three strikeouts.

Byron Buxton is not in Monday's lineup versus the Indians.

The scuffling outfielder will get a day to clear his head. Max Kepler will make the start in center field while Robbie Grossman plays right. Miguel Sano is in the DH spot and Eduardo Escobar will play third.
