2014 Prospect list

by Shane Wahl on 04-08-2014 at 10:24 AM
Here is my updated prospect list given the recent trade, releases, and injuries. This will be the last time Josmil Pinto appears on my prospect list. In two years he has moved from 50 to 5. This is yet another justification for building out long prospect lists like this.

1. Byron Buxton
2. Miguel Sano
3. Alex Meyer
4. Kohl Stewart
5. Josmil Pinto
6. J.O. Berrios
7. Eddie Rosario
8. Jorge Polanco
9. Stephen Gonsalves

Twins Top 65 Prospects (11-20)

by Shane Wahl on 12-30-2013 at 02:09 PM
I am continuing my countdown of the top 65 (now 66) prospects in the Twins system. Newly acquired Sean Gilmartin makes an appearance. This is not for effect, this really is where I think he belongs on the Twins prospect list.

(new) 21. Sean Gilmartin, LHS, DOB: 5-8-90

2013 Rk/A/AAA (AAA statistics): 91 innings pitched, 5.74 ERA, 65 strikeouts/33 walks (7.0/2.3 career K/BB)

Gilmartin was acquired in a trade for Ryan Doumit, and it is another successful move

Twins Top 65 Prospects (21-30)

by Shane Wahl on 11-26-2013 at 03:21 PM
30. Aderlin Mejia, SS/2B/Util, SH, DOB: 5/12/92
2013 A+: 328 plate appearances, .308/.359/.349 (.708, .664 career), 10 doubles, 1 triple, 0 homers, 26 walks, 30 strikeouts, 14 stolen bases, 10 times caught stealing

Mejia has been fortunate to be in the right place (Fort Myers) at the right time when that team suddenly needs a player due to injury. Mejia ran with the opportunity this year at Fort Myers, even though he basically jumped from the GCL. That's a big jump, but Mejia

Twins Top 65 Prospects (31-40)

by Shane Wahl on 11-11-2013 at 10:59 PM
This continues my prospect countdown. This is quite an interesting mix of players, for Minier to D. Romero, and the inclusion of Nate Roberts and Adrian Salcedo.

40. Amaurys Minier, 3B, SH, DOB: 1/30/96
2013 GCL: 119 PA, .214/.252/.455 (.707), 5 doubles, 2 triples, 6 homers, 6 walks, 29 strikeouts, 1 stolen base, 1 time caught stealing

There should be a fair amount of excitement surrounding Minier as he put up these numbers in the GCL before his 18th birthday.

Top 65 Twins Prospects (41-50)

by Shane Wahl on 11-09-2013 at 12:48 PM
Continuing my top 65 prospects. Here are 50-41:

50. Jason Wheeler, LHS, DOB: 10/27/90 2013 A+: 143.1, 3.70, 91/58 (6.2/3.0)

Wheeler walked more and struck out fewer in fewer innings at Fort Myers than his 2012 effort in Beloit. He has logged 300 innings in the past two seasons with a 3.57 ERA. I have to imagine he is heading back to Fort Myers to improve his K/BB rate in 2014.

49. Dan Rohlfing, C/corner OF, RH, DOB: 2/12/89
2013 AA/AAA (combined stats):
