Every year about this time, I present profiles of College and High School players that the Minnesota Twins might draft. Last year, I identified pitching as a high need, so I presented the profiles of 23 pitchers, all potential Twins' draft picks. The Twins, properly, went ahead and picked a High School outfielder instead. I will be doing something different this year. Like past years, I will continue to present mini-profiles of every single Twins' draftee (you can find the 2012 profiles here) but instead of profiling 20some players that the Twins might pick, I will name several players (in the hundreds) that will be drafted.

The thought behind this is that everyone knows the 4-5 players who make up the pool of talent that the Minnesota Twins will select with the 4th overall picks (for a refresher, look at the aggregate mock draft picks); however, there is little information about players in later rounds. I hope that this fills that gap somewhat. I am dividing it into 4 parts: College Pitchers, College Position Players, High School Pitchers and High School Position Players. This is the first part and includes College Pitchers. One thing that we learned from the 2012 draft, the first one under the new CBA, is that the new rules favor selecting College picks. Thus, I am certain that the 129 names I am presenting here will all get selected sometime in this draft and that the Twins will select 4-5 of them.

This is just an naming names list; in the near future, additional one liners of information (micro scouting reports) will be added about each player, after I complete all four installments. I know it is somewhat of a huge undertaking, but it is fun.

    The Twins took Smelter in the 11th round 3 years ago as a pitcher. They really liked him, offered him a lot of money. He went to Georgia Tech and has completely flopped. He was good as a reliever as a freshman. He also played in the OF and hit .222 with no power. He then got hurt his sophomore year and pitched very limited. This year, he's back in their bullpen with very pedestrian numbers. Can't help but think that he wishes he had signed, but wouldn't be surprised if the Twins still take a late-round flyer on him.

    That is the risk that High School kids take when they do not sign. On the other hand, college education is worth something as well...
