The Minnesota Twins are now undefeated through their first game of the Spring Training slate, and they can lay claim to having one of the most exciting camps in all of Major League Baseball. While the Twins have plenty of positional battles just like every other team, they also boast some of the best prospects in the game. MLB Pipeline recently checked in down in Fort Myers to see what’s going on with the Twins.

Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com featured a few different areas of the Twins camp, and brought even more national attention to the club from Twins Territory. With first time manager Paul Molitor well underway running the show, Minnesota has hit the ground sprinting.
Knowing that the Twins have six prospects on Major League Baseball’s top 100 list, the team has plenty of excitement coming down the pipeline. However, prospects only matter if they end up performing at the high level when it comes to the major leagues. Mayo spoke with the Twins farm director Brad Steil, and he had this to say about the state of the system:
"“We feel good about where we’re at with the players we have right now.We’re starting to see some of those players start to surface at the top of the system and it’s nice to see them now starting to surface at the big league level. That’s what it’s all about, obviously. Prospects are just prospects until they start producing in the big leagues.”"
While prospects may highlight the Twins spring thus far, there are plenty of other areas to check on. Mayo brings a few to light.
