Twins third base prospect Miguel Sano recently started swinging a bat and thanks to the folks with, we have some footage of him taking batting practice.

You can check it out here. 

Sano, who had surgery during spring training, will remain in Fort Myers until Dec. 1, then he'll head to the Dominican Republic to play the second half of the winter ball season. That will allow him to get some game action in before spring training camp opens in February.

The injury ruined any chance of him debuting this season. Sano was scheduled to join fellow top prospect Byron Buxton and Kennys Vargas at New Britain, but Sano's elbow injury and Buxton's wrist injury kept New Britain from having a threatening lineup.
