Maybe one of the most intriguing prospects debuting during Spring Training this year is Kepler. Now on the 40 man roster, and 22 years old, seeing him compete at the major league level if becoming a reality. The Twins were high on the German when they signed him and it’s becoming apparent as to why.
Kepler showed well during the Arizona Fall League and had a solid season at Single-A Fort Myers. Whether he remains in the outfield or moves over to first base remains a question, but Kepler appears to posses real major league talent. He is going to start in Double-A Chattanooga, and now is becoming very close to contributing for the Twins.
When any team has such a solid farm system, you are bound to have plenty of players of intrigue appear at Spring Training. For the Twins, many of those prospects getting time down in Florida are close to debuting with the big league club, making the excitement that much higher.
