Incident involving Twins’ Sano under investigation in Dominican Republic

10 October 2018

Reports out of the Dominican Republic indicate the Twins third baseman was arrested after an incident in which an officer requested he pull over outside of a club at 3 a.m. Sunday.

Gillandeux suffered breaks to both the tibia and fibula of his left leg and was taken to the hospital by Sano, according to Duran. Duran said Sano was never charged with a crime because he did not leave the scene. The two knew each other beforehand and Sano offered to pay his medical expenses. According to the police report, Sano had "no documents on him and the truck had no plates" and "ran over a cop's foot and leg". Sano was initially detained by police for several hours after the accident but was then released after agreeing to return on Monday to be issued a citation to appear in traffic court. "It is a formality when someone is injured in a vehicular accident. Neither the agent nor the national police plan to charge Sano with anything".

"The facts of the incident are not completely available right now but the club is in the process of gathering as much information as possible", Twins spokesman Dustin Morse told ESPN.

Asked to clarify what he meant, he replied: "In the decisions, in the randomness, in the pure consistency". Stroll was handed two points on his superlicence, taking his tally for the rolling 12 month period to six.

The accident was another bump in what has been a rocky road for the former All-Star, who was accused of sexual assault by a female photographer last December, although no charges were filed.

Hopefully for Twins fans, nothing comes of this incident and Sano is back and ready to play for the 2019 season.

Sano hit.199 with 13 home runs and 41 RBI this season.
