Top 10 Minnesota Twins Prospects To Watch In 2015

4 of 10


7. Nick Burdi RHP: Burdi has all the makings of a back-end-of-the-bullpen type guy, and projects strongly as a major league closer. With Glen Perkins currently in that role, Burdi could find himself setting up for him or slotting into a 7th inning role. Consistently touching triple digits, Burdi is one of the hardest throwing pitchers in the Twins organization. In 2015, look for Burdi to make quick work of Single-A Ft. Myers and make the jump to the upper ranks. It wouldn’t be out of the question to see Burdi throwing at Target Field late in the season.
