Minnesota Twins: Ranking the top 5 position player prospects
By Tyler Kruse
#3 Trevor Larnach OF
Another prospect creeping closer to the majors is the 2018 MLB draft first-round pick Trevor Larnach. WIth Larnach also being a solid outfield prospect, it’s fair to question if all these guys will be around in the years to come. Drafted 20th overall, Trevor led Oregon State to the College World Series title in 2018. At 6’4″ and 223-pounds, Larnach is just 22 years of age meaning time is on his side.
A more well-rounded prospect than Rooker, Larnach still has a decent amount of pop to go along with his solid overall game. While he’s currently with the AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos, Trevor has a .306 average on the year between A+ and AA. The thing I like most about Trevor is his ability to draw walks and keep his strikeouts to a minimum.
With a stout outfield at the highest level and a few top prospects playing the position, it’s easy to question whether Larnach will be with the Twins long term. It’s safe to assume the Minnesota Twins front office would love to keep a kid with his potential.
Though circumstances may force the Twins to part ways with him or one of the other top outfield prospects, it doesn’t necessarily have to be for MLB talent. We saw a couple of prospect focused trades this past deadline which could help strengthen the Minnesota Twins pitching prospect depth. With Trevor being only 22, he has a couple of years to develop if the Twins think the extra time would be beneficial.
