• Terry Doyle Stars on Twins Podcast

    photo/milb.comTwins Rule 5 draft pick Terry Doyle was the star guest on last nightís SethSpeaks.net Weekly Minnesota Twins Podcast. The right-hander comes to the Twins organization after spending the past few seasons in the Chicago White Sox organization. The New Hampshire native went to Boston College where he went four years, was drafted twice and graduated with a math major. He teamed with the Twins prospects on the Mesa Solar Sox roster in the Arizona Fall League where he went 4-0. All told, last season, he passed the 200 innings pitched count. He is certainly excited about his opportunity with the Twins.

    Twins pitchers and catchers will report to Ft. Myers (officially) on Saturday and their first workout is on Sunday. Of course, as is always the case, most of the Twins roster, including many minor leaguers, are already working out in Ft. Myers.

    Following the 20+ minute interview with the talented right-hander, Fanatic Jack and I discussed/argued several Twins related topics. I also gave a minute or two rant about why I chose to be optimistic and positive despite my ability to be realistic as well. I actually think it went pretty well as it wasnít an interview session, it was just back and forth Twins banter on a smorgasbord of Twins topics.

      When was the last time a Twins Rule 5 pick made the team for Opening Day? I honestly can't remember one since Santana.

      That is pretty much correct. The Twins took Jared Camp with the first pick in that 1999 Rule 5 pick, and then traded him to Florida for the #2 pick (Santana). Here are their Rule 5 picks since:

      2000 - Brandon Knight
      2001 - None
      2002 - Jose Morban (later spent time with O's)
      2003 - None
      2004 - Ryan Rowland-Smith (The Aussie has spent a lot of big league time)
      2005 - Jason Pridie (was returned to TB, but obviously came back)
      2006 - Alejandro Machado (spent year on DL, next year in Rochester, when healthy)
      2007 - None
      2008 - Jason Jones (spent one year in Rochester)
      2009 - None
      2010 - Scott Diamond
      2011 - Terry Doyle
