Gulf Coast League Twins

Record: 26-20, first in South
The GCL club is yet another team that is on pace to be in the playoffs, currently sitting in the 3rd seed of a 4-team playoff with each division’s winner having a place. The team did just lose Royce Lewis, but this has allowed fellow 2017 Ricky De La Torre to play his natural shortstop position and give surprising Emmanuel Morel more plate appearances as he continues to impress.
