Slideshow: Miguel Sano Is Too Big


Nineteen-year-old Miguel Sano was drafted signed as a shortstop. He was then seen as oversized for that position, so he was moved to third base. As the above photo — where he is compared to the 5’10”, 175 lb. Eduardo Escobar — shows,  he may be a little large for third base as well. But Sano’s largeness doesn’t just apply to the baseball field. Miguel Sano is too big for many, many things.

    According to B-ref, he’s the same height and weight as Derek Jeter. Of course, Derek Jeter is arguably oversized for his position.

    Just to nitpick, Sano wasn’t drafted.

    That aside, the Bag End one is hilarious.

    Miguel Sano is the same age as I am and he’s occuping his time being massive and I’m just sitting here eating peanut butter.
