Jose Berrios

Considering he addressed it as his goal, and we recently found out that Berrios has received a non-roster invite to spring training, this is an option worth being addressed. Last season, Berrios tore up the Florida State League, over-powering batters left and right. Success continued, although not to the same extent, at Double-A New Britain. He made a start late in the season for Triple-A Rochester as well. In 2015, I would assume that Berrios starts at Double-A Chatanooga, but is quickly moved up to Rochester. Although I don’t see Berrios pitching out of the 5th spot in the rotation to start the season, I think it’s a very real possibility that he makes starts for the Twins by the end of the summer or early fall.
