Miguel Sano (1B/3B, MIN) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues

OWNED IN: 38% of Yahoo! leagues

ANALYSIS: After missing the majority of the season on the injured list, Twins infielder Miguel Sano is back and doing what he does best - mashing the crap out of the ball, when he's not swinging and missing. His 10.8% walk rate and 36.1% strikeout rate are right in line with his career norms, and his six home runs and 12 RBI through 19 games shows that he still has that 30 HR, 100 RBI potential in his bat.

Sano is finally starting to loft the ball more this year as well, a welcome development for the slugger even though it may hurt his batting average. If he can continue to boast a hard hit rate over 50% (54.5% at the moment) along with a launch angle of 17.5 degrees, there should be plenty of round-trippers in Sano's future. Considering how strong Minnesota's lineup is, that should lead to plenty of RBI opportunities as well.

Don't pick up Sano unless you can stomach the batting average and strike out issues, but he's probably as good of a power source as there is on the waiver wire right now.
