1. Jose Berrios RHP: There may be no Twins prospect that shot up the rankings faster than Jose Berrios. After making his Target Field debut in the Futures Game, Berrios decided his goal was to be included in the Twins 2015 starting rotation. It’s almost a certainty that doesn’t happen out of spring training, but Berrios is incredibly close. Berrios made a mockery of the Florida State League, and was competitive with Double-A New Britain. I would expect Berrios to get a decent amount of time with Triple-A Rochester prior to cracking the Twins rotation. In 2015, Minnesota has plenty of options when it comes to arms, but don’t be surprised if Berrios forces their hand.
It is one thing to hear about the talent that the Twins have in their farm system, but to see ten prospects that don’t even include the likes of Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton is a testament to the depth. Terry Ryan has drafted and acquired a lot of young talent, and 2015 is going to be a big year in the developmental phase for many of these young prospects. Minnesota will rise to the top of the AL Central again through many of these names reaching their potential, here’s to hoping for big steps forward this season.
