2012 MLB Prospects: Twins Top 20


At the end of the month (27-29 Jan) Twins fans from around the state (the nation, and maybe even the world) will descend upon the H.H.H. Metrodome for Twins Fest 2012.  And only a few short weeks after Twins Fest, there will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 65 Minnesota Twins players/prospects heading down to Ft. Myers, FL for Spring Training.  You can get the full scoop on the 25 non-roster invites from Nate by following his daily series on the prospects. In addition, sometime before Spring Training, and hopefully before Twins Fest, Seth Stohs (@SethTweets) will be releasing his 2012 Prospect Handbook.  In an effort to get my top prospect out to the world prior to the release of Seth’s be-all/end-all prospect handbook (a MUST own/read for any die hard Twins fan, or anyone heading down to Spring Training), you can find my list of the top 20 Twins prospects after the jump.
