#36 Kohl Stewart
After being selected with the Twins first pick in the 2013 draft, Stewart has lived up to the hype thus far in his minor league career. Law had Stewart just outside the top 50 (53) in his rankings, but MLB.com sees him more favorably. Posting a sub 3.00 ERA through his first two professional seasons, Stewart has done a lot of things right.
Despite experiencing some shoulder discomfort a season ago, all expectations would be that 2015 should see a clean bill of health from Stewart. Expect a rise to Fort Myers to come relatively early, and for him to settle in against some tougher competition this season. Stewart is probably at least a year and a half away yet, but has shown top of the rotation potential.
While Keith Law had six Twins prospects in his top 100 as well, it is MLB.com that sees each of those six all in the top 50. Regardless of number or positioning, Twins fans have to be excited about the level of top-tier talent that the farm system possesses. With names such as Eddie Rosario, Lewis Thorpe, and Stephen Gonsalves all being void of the top 100, Minnesota has a ton of depth to be excited about.
As the Twins look to turn things around in 2015, the wave of prospects should help to usher in a new generation of winning.
