In 2015, the Minnesota Twins will look to turn the page towards competitiveness under the direction of new manager Paul Molitor. Having gone through plenty of losing seasons in recent memory, there is some buzz building around the organization for 2015 and beyond. Outside of the free-agent acquisitions of Torii Hunter and Ervin Santana, a bigger part of the turnaround could be in the home grown talent in the Twins farm system.

For Minnesota to take a step forward, and for the club to experience continued success for years to come, much of the young talent will need to keep progressing and make an impact at the big league level. Considering the amount of players that currently project as big league contributors, Twins fans have a lot to get excited about when looking through the minor league rosters.
In 2015, few of the big name prospects will surface at Target Field, but no matter where they play, there is a handful that can use 2015 as a springboard towards furthering their careers.
Let’s take a look at the top 10 prospects to watch in 2015. Presented in no particular order, here we go:
10. Max Kepler OF: Out of Germany, Max Kepler is a name that the Twins have been high on since his arrival to the US. Last season was really a rebuilding year for Kepler as he missed much of 2013 with an elbow injury. He’s an athletic outfielder who has the opportunity to hit for both average and power from the left side of the plate. In the Arizona Fall League this year he batted .307 across 18 games and flashed much of the promise he is known for. Already on the 40 man roster, look for Kepler to take a step forward this year and potentially find himself playing with the Chatanooga Lookouts in Double-A at some point.
