4. The Prospect Timetable

Like everyone around Twins Territory, wanting Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano to surface at the major league level is something we are highly anticipating. With that in mind however, just when exactly they do is indicative of how the Twins season is going.

It remains very unlikely that either Sano or Buxton would make the 25 man roster out of Spring Training. With that in mind, how many teams throughout the major leagues have the ability to add two top talents to their roster at any point throughout the season without making a trade or signing? Whether the two top prospects surface out of forcing themselves onto the scene, or out of need, the Twins should be in a good spot regardless.

Byron Buxton could be called upon should the Twins outfield need help, and he would immediately provide a boost over the likes of Jordan Schafer or a struggling Aaron Hicks. If Kennys Vargas struggles at the plate, Miguel Sano could immediately make a splash with his bat. Both players give the Twins the ability to improve through their eventual call up. If they are competing, it would be a situation that they improve through within. If Minnesota is struggling, both prospects could help to change the direction.
