Minnesota Twins prospect Miguel Sano is not yet a household name.  But it will not be long before he is on every baseball fan’s radar.  The 19-year-old from the Dominican Republic is ranked as the top prospect in the Twins organization and a top ten prospect (by Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus) in all of baseball.  The Twins recognized his potential as an international free agent three years ago and signed him to a $3.15 million contract.

Sano was represented by SFX Baseball; however, according to Tim Dierkes of, Sano has recently switched to Beverly Hills Sports Council.

The hard hitting Sano is currently playing at the High-A level within the Twins organization, but it may not be long before he rises up the ranks to join the MLB squad.  That said, it could take a few years before Sano’s new representation is able to benefit from agent commissions, either through arbitration or the signing of a multi-year deal.
