Twins Top 50 Prospects

Rate this Entry
This is my assessment of the Twins current minor league system. You'll notice that Liam Hendriks, Brian Dozier, and Chris Parmelee are not included because I no longer consider them prospects. Much of this has been done from a statistical viewpoint and age is another big factor. I listed positions to give a clear cut view of how depth is at each spot. I'd like to give a little credit to shanewahl and TwinkieTown for providing reasonable comparisons to my own. Please enjoy!

    Pretend you have him at #46, since Mazzilli hasn't signed yet (although until 4:00 tomorrow, he still could.)

    Like it the list. Particularly have Oswaldo so high. The guy can rake. I do have to give a shout out to one of the two pitchers with the most most organization wins...Jason Wheeler- 10 and 4. I think in the 50 he could have some slot maybe taken by a guy who has not thrown a professional pitch or has been out performed by him at Beloit. You know I have to defend the honor of my Adopt a Prospect.

    That's a good quick fix. I'll go on thinking that I did so the whole time.

    Ahhh yes. The Torrance Tornado...How could I forget? I'd probably slot him 40 above Shibuya. Like the criticism so far and wouldn't mind some more. I do love feedback.

    A tear of joy has appeared in my eye with the news he would be included. Justice has once again been served on the Twins Daily site. God Bless America.

    Good list, and I like having Arcia so high. Between his hitting ability (hasn't lost a step moving up to AA so far) and the young age, he should be shooting up most lists.

    I might move Wimmers down a little, since he's very much in limbo right now.

    The worst farm system in MLB without question. Not one impact pitcher among the bunch. Oh well we have Scott Diamond and Brian Duensing we should be fine.

    Not the Worst farm system

    actually rated in the top 20 overall.... of the 30 teams without question to me, but, its definately outside the top 10.

    Evan Bigley OF - New Britian would be in my top 50.
    Caleb Theilbar RP - might be right at #50.
    Angel Morales OF - would be no higher than 35.
    There are a few others....

    but for the most part good list YOur House MY House.

    Good list. Bruce Pugh is pretty dominant right now. I am going to be moving him up my list quite a bit.

    Now you have to put someone else in for Mazzeli, because he didn't sign before the deadline.
