    The upper-levels of the Twins minor league system is stocked with relief pitchers performing at a high level. Here is a quick rundown:

    Michael Tonkin (AAA, 24)- Tonkin has been arguably the best reliever in the Twins system since the start of 2012. This year in AAA, Tonkin has a 3.08 ERA—nothing special—but his K and BB numbers are excellent: 26 K’s to just four BB’s in 26.1 innings. He’s been even better in this department since the start of June: 18 K’s to one BB in 18.1 IP. Tonkin

    Here are three Minnesota Twins prospects (all are 1.7 years younger than the average player in their respective leagues, according to Baseball Reference) who, at first glance, appear to be struggling so far in 2014. A closer examination, however, tells a different story:

    Taylor Rogers (AA SP)

    • 32.2 IP in 8 GS
    • The bad:
      • 5.36 ERA
      • 1.53 WHIP

    • Why he’s better than his numbers:

    Shortstop appears to be the weakest position in the Twins organization. Danny Santana is the closest legitimate SS prospect to the majors. But with a .691 OPS this season and 29 errors already (Alexei Ramirez leads all shortstops with 21), does Santana have a legitimate chance to be a franchise shortstop? A closer look gives reasons for optimism.

    Heading into the 2013 season, there were five 2B prospects that were generally considered to be among the top 100 in baseball: Jedd Gyorko of the San Diego Padres, Nick Franklin of the Seattle Mariners, Kolten Wong of the St. Louis Cardinals, Jonathan Schoop of the Baltimore Orioles, and Delino DeShields Jr. of the Houston Astros.

    My question is this: how does Eddie Rosario stack-up statistically against these more heavily hyped prospects?
