Continued: Oh no, Sano: Elbow injury will end Twins prospect's season

Sano even could begin taking batting practice in about four months. And the Twins have an example of how well a player can return from such an injury on their own coaching staff — Paul Molitor, who had the procedure done (albeit on a different ligament) in 1984 and rebounded to make the All-Star team the next year.

Sano was given the news by orthopedic physician Dr. Diane Dahm and athletic trainer Dave Pruemer on Saturday morning, and took the news stoically.

“I’m surprised,” Sano said. “I feel better, but when I throw the ball, I’m sore.”

By the end of the day, he was his normal lighthearted self, joking with his teammates in the clubhouse after their exhibition victory over the Red Sox.

“The amazing thing about him is he’s so upbeat. He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll get it taken care of and I’ll be back soon,’ ” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “It’s sad — he just wants to play baseball, and we were all looking forward to him having a good year.”
