Sano's agent/right-hand man, Miguel Alvarez, said that the plan is for Sano to head to Fort Myers for training later this month. While in the Dominican Republic, Sano has been training at both third and first base. The Twins have a big $$ offer on the table for free agent Josh Donaldson. If he accepts, Sano would move to first base.

Sano, 26, hit 34 homers in 2019 in only 105 games. He said his biggest 2020 goal is to stay healthy for a full season.
