Baseball America Boasts Twins Prospects In Top 100
The lone big name escaping Baseball America’s list is Kohl Stewart. The Twins 2013 first round pick had a strong 2014 before experiencing some shoulder discomfort at the end of the season. Baseball America couldn’t find a place for him however.
Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press categorized the Twins and how they landed on the main prospect lists wonderfully. He notes:
"Earlier this week they placed an industry-leading eight prospects on the Baseball Prospectus Top 101. Buxton topped that list, followed by Sano (12), Meyer (14), 2013 first-rounder Kohl Stewart (28), Berrios (48), Gordon (70), Australian lefty Lewis Thorpe (91) and power reliever Nick Burdi (99). MLB.com placed six Twins in the top 36 spots of its annual Top 100. Buxton led the way, followed by Sano (11), Meyer (29), Berrios (32), Gordon (33) and Stewart (36). The ESPN list, which was the first to be released this offseason, had Buxton at No. 2, followed by Sano (15), Meyer (30), Gordon (43), Stewart (53) and Berrios (97). Besides Buxton, four other Twins prospects made all four lists. Their average rankings were as follows: Sano 12.75, Meyer 33.75, Gordon 51.75 and Berrios 53.25."
This all continues to back the notion that the Twins have one of the best farm systems in the major leagues, and the horizon remains incredibly bright.
