    Not sure that I can say that Deibinson Romero has been overlooked in the organization. He was added to the 40 man roster a few years ago to be protected and was invited to the ST this season. I like him a lot and I think that the Twins know what they have in him.

    I am really not that high on Beresford as some people are. I've seen him play a few times now. And all I can think is Dinkelman or Tolleson. Despite the allegations of a great glove.

    Grimes is having a great season, but he is at least a couple of levels below his age group. I want to see what he can do in New Britain, where he should be age-wise

    Hard to omit Kennys Vargas in the most overlooked list. He should be in New Britain and in Rochester next season.
    I'd probably add Matt Koch and Evan Bigley in the list as well. Heck, I overlooked Bigley until last season as well. And unfortunately he has been injured most of this season, but I think that he's got it...

    Romero has clearly been overlooked by most Twins fans. Few have probably even heard of him.

    Beresford will only be a Twin because of big bats around him. Otherwise no amount of defense is going to make up for his lack of punch.

    Grimes should have been promoted to Fort Myers at some point this year, yes. And Vargas should have been promoted to New Britain.

    Koch is interesting, but you make age claims about Grimes and not about Koch?

    Evan Bigley is never going to be a major league baseball player. Talk about starting to get old!

    Your post confuses me.
