NEW YORK (AP) - Minnesota left All-Star third baseman Miguel Sano off its roster for the Twins' AL wild-card playoff game against the New York Yankees after he failed to fully recover from an injured left shin.
    
Sano missed 38 games after fouling a ball off his shin, returned as a pinch hitter Friday and was Minnesota's designated hitter Saturday and Sunday. He was pinch-hit for in the eighth inning of Sunday's regular-season finale after feeling discomfort in the leg. Sano went 1 for 8 with three strikeouts in the series against Detroit and finished the season with a .264 average. 28 homers and 77 RBIs in 114 games.
    
Kennys Vargas or Robbie Grossman likely will be the DH in Tuesday night's game.
    
Luis Severino (14-6) starts for the Yankees and Ervin Santana (16-8) for the Twins.
    
New York kept left-hander CC Sabathia and right-hander Sonny Gray among its nine relief pitchers. Minnesota's bullpen includes a pair of starters, Jose Berrios and Adalberto Mejia.
