Who is NOT Hot in the Twins minors? 2012 version 2

Rate this Entry
This is the second version of the 'who is NOT hot in the Twins' minors' series for 2012. I have been doing the Who is hot in the Minors series for a few years now and I decided that a complimentary list might be in order. I will be updating those every month or so, as well. The current "who IS hot" list can be found here and the former "who is NOT hot" list can be found here. This list is getting smaller, but it is unfortunate to see one of the Twins' top prospects (Adrian Salcedo) in it.



Without further ado, here is the list, going from AAA to A. The clubs represented are AAA Rochester Red Wings, International League, AA New Britain Rock Cats, Eastern League, A+ Fort Myers Miracle, Florida State League, A Beloit Snappers, Midwest League (Note: Yesterday's games are not reflected) :

Rene Rivera (RHB, 28, AAA) .169/.250/.277 2 HR, 3 RBI, 73 PA

Kyle Knudson (RHB, 24, A) .154/.154/.154 0 HR, 1 RBI, 15 PA





Infielders:




Danny Valencia (RHB, 27, AAA) .125/.125/.188 1 RBI, 16 PA

Estarlin De Los Santos (SHB, 25, AA) .169/.233/.205 0 HR, 5 RBI, 91 PA

Andy Leer (RHB, 24, A+) .175/.246/.302 0 HR, 2 RBI, 71 PA





Outfielders:




Rene Tosoni (LHB, 25, AAA) .125/.222/.167 0 HR, 3 RBI, 55 PA

    Disappointing to see Benson falter right when he should be stepping into position with the bug club.

    Hicks easily makes the conversation for disappointing outfielders. He's batting just .239/.325/.384 with 41 K's to 19 BB's in 138 AB's. It's his first go at AA pitching, so it's not time to panic, but if he's still struggling against righties later in the season, then the Twins need to scrap the switch hitting and have him start batting right-handed.

    Sano is hitting 216 in his last 10 games , Rosario is batting 162 in his last 10 games. Why they arent on your list is mind-blowing

    The list is overall YTD-based performance based, that's why they are not here. It is not a slice in time list.
    Also, batting average is one of the considerations. Sano at this point has the highest OPS in the organization at any level. If I put Hicks on this list, 3/4 of the organization would also need to be in it.

    Uggh, has the Twins organization slipped to the bottom of the league rankings? Considering we are the worst team in the majors and it appears at least 3/4 of the players in the minors are struggling, what the heck is going on?

    No... 3/4 of the minors are not struggling

    they just have worse OPS than Hicks. He is doing fine and they are doing fine. New Britain and Beloit are very competitive in their leagues and might win it all this season. When the Rookie leagues open, E-town will be a force to reckon with. GCL will depend on drafting, but based on the DSL imports they will also be great.

    Lots of good players in the system.
