I don't see Sano making it to the bigs until September 2014, but it could be earlier. He could be added to the 40-man roster next season.
If we don't add him couldn't a team pick him up in the Rule 5 draft? I am thinking around the same lines you are cat, Sano has a ways to go. There is a huge difference between hitting in Beloit and the MLB, right now Sano is going up to the plate with the sole purpose of hitting it. In the MLB to be successful you have to plan ahead and adjust your plan according to the pitcher and situation. Sano has all the potential in the world but there is no reason to risk it by rushing him through the system.
