MINNEAPOLIS – Twins has placed a catcher Mitch Garver in a 10-day injured list with a fetid left ankle and the third baseman Miguel Sano returns from his rehabilitation assignment, nearly four months after he hit his right heel.
Minnesota made moves on Wednesday before the game against Los Angeles, following Garver's injury that night at a home collision with stars Shohei Ohtani. It was discovered that Garver had a high reel, which could have been longer to cure than other varieties, but both Garver and manager Rocco Baldelli expressed relief that the damage was not worse. Garver was wearing a short boots in the clubhouse. No time for his return to action was announced.
"There is no excessive inflammation, where we are pleased," said Garver, who captured the center fielder Byron Buxton's throw at the eighth inning on Tuesday and tagged Ohtani to avoid tying running from scoring when Ohtani moves to his leg to cause his ankle awkwardly twist in 4-3 victory through Twins.
There is no bad mood though
"You should slide at home Twins lead to majors with 16 home runs and 38 RBIs from a fascinating position, also getting a strong contribution from Jason Castro and Willians Astudillo, the loss of Garver is clearly not the way they want to bring back Sano. Garver has a breakout season, batting .329 with four doubles, nine home runs and 19 RBIs His OPS was 1,164.
After a fever on January 26 at a festival in the Dominican Republic when he fell on several metal stages after his team's winter championship, it was finally removed Sano for the action.He continued with a debridement procedure that removes damaged tissue or foreign objects from a wound on March 5. Sano played 10 games in his rehab for minors, to halt to Class A Fort Myers, Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Rochester.  The 26-year-old slugger, whose league's main league was marked with a much longer injury than the home run, was set to only .199 with a .679 OPS in 71 games last season while spending months in minor leagues for reconditioning.

Sano did not play in Minnesota's 8-7 win against Angels on Wednesday.
Sano's return means Marwin Gonzalez puts his many abilities to use. He can play all four positions of the infield and the spots out of the corner, and is likely to line up almost every day while Baldelli gives different regulars, including the Sano .
"It's time," Baldelli said.
