ESPN Insider Keith Law’s Top 10 Twins Prospects 2015 Edition

7. Lewis Thorpe, LHP

The Australian phenom continues to rise up the prospect rankings, and it appears Law has taken notice as well. At just 19 years old, Thorpe was already pitching for Cedar Rapids last season. In 2015, the biggest thing for Thorpe will be getting back to consistency and continuing to development.

In Cedar Rapids, he compiled a 3.52 ERA across 16 starts. His 10.0 K/9 was impressive, but he simply walked too many batters allowing 4.5 BB/9. With young pitchers, command is always going to be an issue, and if Thorpe can figure that out, he has dominant ability.
