Miguel Sano was interviewed by investigators from Major League Baseball on Tuesday, a sign that the inquiry into an alleged assault on a female photographer in 2015 may be nearing a resolution.

Sano, 24, missed the Twins' workouts Tuesday after his representatives informed the team of his appointment with MLB's security departments, according to a source with knowledge of his whereabouts. Sano returned to Hammond Stadium by late afternoon, in time for the Twins' night game against Boston, though he was not in the lineup.

Sano did some weightlifting after returning to camp, Paul Molitor, and the manager decided to stick to his plan to have the burly Dominican make his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday. Sano will bat cleanup and play third base in the Twins' home game vs. Tampa Bay, according to the lineup posted in the Twins clubhouse.
