STATiSTICALLY SPEAKING

Entering Saturday, Miguel Sano is the Twins' most productive hitter, with an OPS of .866 and a WAR of 2.3, both team highs. But he is addicted to strikeouts, perhaps indicating how little they mean in the modern game. In just 300 games, Sano already ranks 26th in Twins history in strikeouts, and he's even higher on some other of the team's leaderboards:
