Some DSL Prospects to Watch

by Shane Wahl on Today at 01:12 AM
I am working through the minor league system team by team and providing six to ten players to watch for the remainder of the season. I will start here at the bottom in the Dominican Summer League and work all the way through Rochester. This provides a nice mix of known and unknown players to pay attention to for the rest of the dismal 2014 Twins season.

My DSL players to watch:

1. Lewin Diaz, 1B, LH, DOB: 11/19/96

2014 statistics: 92 plate appearances, .272/.359/.457

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.

5. Josmil Pinto
6. J.O. Berrios
7. Eddie Rosario

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
