    Blake attended Eden Prairie HS and now plays for Maryland. Outstanding SS and competitor. Played on EP's Legion World Series Champions team in 2011 and was named MVP of the tournament. Great pick!

    It is insane that they draft over 1000 players.

    With the MLB Draft going on I put together a database of the Twins minor league system and wanted to see the impact the draft has had on the Twins organization. Some interesting (at least to me) notes.

    1. The oldest draft year still represented in the Twins organization is 2007, with Dan Rohfling a light hitting catcher drafted out of Missouri high school and playing in Rochester (AAA). The Twins top draft pick that year was Ben Revere.

    2. The oldest college players drafted that are still in the organization are from the 2008 draft. Mike Gonzales (9) and Nate Hanson (28) are still in the organization from the draft that yielded Aaron Hicks as a first round pick. Three HS players from that draft are still in the organization, Daniel Ortiz, BJ Hermsen, and Michael Tonkin (would be nice to see Ortiz get a shot in September call ups).

    3. Only one player from the 2009 draft is still in the organization, 6th round pick Chris Hermann. Kyle Gibson(1) and Brian Dozier(8) are two players on the major league team from that draft.

    4. The big cut for draft years is between the 2009 and 2010. While only 1 player from the 2009 draft still remains in the minor league system, 13 from the 2010 draft are still playing minor league ball. Only one has had a taste of the big leagues, 6th round pick Logan Darnell and only 46th round pick AJ Achter has joined Darnell at the AAA level. Most likely, only a couple of these guys will still be in the organization next year.

    I know that the Twins really try hard to sign their top 12-15 picks... so I would think there would be a good chance, but you never know. They generally have a pretty good idea if they can sign a guy or not.

    This is great stuff... nice work on your database... have you seen Jeremy's Rosters & Payrolls database here at Twins Daily?

    Freaking love this pick. Hope they can sign him. Pat is from my hometown and was a water boy for the Varsity football team when I played as a senior. Dude was just a little guy. Now that Twins drafted him! And he's a heck of a player! Teammate of OF Ryan Boldt who almost went first round last year if not for injury. Both from Red Wing.

    Kelly sure seems to be loving up the pick. I am friends with his sisters on FB and they're celebrating at his house with family/friends. Here's a pic from it.

    His family is having a draft party and he's in pictured wearing a Twins cap so I'd think signs are good. He also tweeted about how lucky he was being drafted by the hometown team. Hopefully they can get Boldt next year

    The son of former Twin's relief pitcher Mark Guthrie was the Twins' last selection. He is a ss, and he has a commitment to U of Florida.

    @asmiff: #MNTwins director of scouting Deron Johnson expects to sign at least 25 of 40 draft picks, "Maybe a few more."

    Believe it or not, I just graduated today with the Twins 34th round pick, Michael Baumann. It was really cool that the Twins picked him, but I doubt he will sign. Just throwing that out there.

    Amazing catch by Tanner English on the highlight video. Any chance he could be signed and ready to play Sunday? LOL

    Really happy to see the Twins draft 2B Pat Kelly. Gotta be team leader and MVP for the Huskers. Batted cleanup this past season. Very solid and clutch. Very much the
    "gamer" type. Not as versatile as Christensen, also from the Huskers, who I'm thinking might be the real deal as an eventual super-utility type capable of helping at 6 positions. But Kelly is a really nice ball player and a great pick. Kind of torn about him signing though, I admit, as I want him with the Twins but also want home back with Erstad and my Big Red next season.

    You have me intrigued by Roberto Gonzalez. Really like to know more about him. Is this a potential steal?

    Late picks, I think the Twins should consider going over any normal slot value for #20 pick 3B McCarthy Tatum. Don't know a thing about him, but Fresno State is a top power who doesn't recruit slouches. Wondering if this might be the kind of kid, who if he doesn't sign, might be a top 10 round pick in a few years.

    Like the Vavra pick but it was also expected. The Guthrie pick is also neat.

    Thank you Willihammer for your notes! Very appreciated.

    No offense to Buxton, Sano, Meyer, May or anyone else in the Twins minor leagues, but the minute he is hopefully signed, my most favorite Twins minor leaguer will be Theo Theofanopoulos. This kid absolutely has to make the show!

    Yeah, I would assume he wouldn't drafted at that point. Might as well go to college and be great and sign in the Top few rounds in 3 years.

    Greatly depends on how many of the Top 10 picks are willing to take below slot, and by how much.

    DocBauer -Gonzalez if very intriguing. Very fast runner - 6.6 60 - hits 94, so a great arm! Very much a toolsy type. Would move very slowly, but I like that upside!
