Third base prospect Miguel Sano, who is recovering from Tommy John ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow, has been cleared to begin a throwing program.
Sano was examined Monday in New York by Dr. David Altchek, the specialist who performed surgery on him on March 12.
“He said his right elbow now looks stronger than his left,” said Rob Plummer, Sano’s agent.
It’s still unclear if Sano will be able to DH in late-season minor league games, but that’s what the Twins are hoping for. Even if Sano is unable to play in minor league games, he will be allowed to participate in offseason leagues like the Arizona Fall League and the Dominican Winter League.
Sano will begin his throwing program Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla. He could be cleared to start swinging a bat next month.
