On Thursday, Minnesota Twins third baseman Miguel Sano was accused of sexually assaulting a female photographer in 2015.

The accuser, Betsy Bissen, wrote a lengthy public Twitter post detailing the assault which went viral. One day later, her account became private.

“He didn’t rape me,” Bissen wrote, “but he sure did assault me.”

I won’t go into all the details, since I’ve already covered it thoroughly on Sports Rants; feel free to read it here.

Unsurprisingly, the 6’4”, 260-pound Sano denied committing the assault, issuing the following statement on Thursday:

“I unequivocally deny the allegation made against me today — it never happened. I have the utmost respect for women, especially those working in professional sports, and I deeply sympathize with anyone who has experienced sexual harassment. There is no place for it in our society.”

The Twins posted a statement of their own:

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
