The bad news has had time to settle in for the Twins.

As revealed on Saturday, key prospect Miguel Sano will undergo Tommy John surgery on the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right arm, likely putting an end to his 2014 season.

However, Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony told reporters on Sunday the team is not ruling out the idea that Sano could be cleared to play in the Arizona Fall League or the Dominican Winter League this year. Antony even said the possibility of Sano serving as a designated hitter late in the minor league season is not out of the picture.

Sano has returned to his home in the Dominican Republic for a few days. He is expected to return stateside later in the week. The Twins are still waiting to set a surgery date, according to the Star Tribune's La Velle E. Neal.
