Miguel Sano is coming back to the Twins.

The 26-year-old will make his 2019 major league debut soon while catcher Mitch Garver nurses a high ankle sprain. Garver, the team's 2nd-leading home run hitter with nine, was placed on the 10-day injured list.

It's not known when Sano will be in the lineup next. Sano appeared to have a productive spring training, but had been rehabbing a heel injury in the minors. He hit .316 with 2 home runs in 10 games.

The Twins wrap up the series against the Angels Wednesday afternoon with a chance to split, then welcome the Mariners, also of the American League West.
