Miguel Sano among 4 Twins players to test positive for COVID-19


Third baseman Miguel Sano was among four Minnesota Twins players to test positive for the coronavirus, the team announced Saturday.

Catcher Willians Astudillo joined minor-leaguers Nick Gordon and Edwar Colina in also testing positive for COVID-19.

Per the Twins, Sano and Astudillo are both said to be asymptomatic and in quarantine in Minnesota.

The 27-year-old Sano signed a three-year, $30 million contract extension with a fourth-year club option this past offseason.

Sano rebounded from beginning last season on the injured list to set career-high totals in homers (34) and RBIs (79) in 105 games. He also had a .247 batting average.
