Watch: Miguel Sano misses a pop up and it bounces off his head

Do. Not. Stare. Directly. Into. The. Sun.

Those are words to live by, but Miguel Sano of the Twins had no choice during today's game with the Rochester Red Wings.

Sano tracked an infield pop fly near the pitcher's mound and the ball came down and bounced right off his head only to land in the glove of his diving teammate. Check it out.

Sano is with the Twins' Triple-A affiliate working his way back from a hamstring injury. Twins manager Paul Molitor still wants Sano to get some work in at right field before he rejoins the Twins at the big-league level, according to the Pioneer Press.

He looked much better on Tuesday night when he smacked an opposite-field home run, the second consecutive game with a homer for Sano.
