Brusdar Graterol

We save the most impactful prospect who could be coming up in September for last. Eyes have been fixated on Brusdar Graterol for the past couple months and it’s not hard to wonder why. Since returning from a shoulder injury in July, Graterol has been lights out in the Twins system and was recently promoted to Triple-A.

The Twins have seemingly been waiting for Graterol to prove himself during this time as they’ve used him exclusively as a reliever and even have let him close games. Since his return, Graterol has been dominant in the pen throwing 11 1/3 shutout innings while allowing just five hits, three walks and 12 strikeouts.

Next. The Twins must fix Jose Berrios' struggles. dark

While the Minnesota front office has sworn not to rush Graterol to the majors, it sure seems like they have a plan in place for the 20-year old to be a key piece of the Twins postseason push. The only question remaining is if those plans will come to fruition or if the Twins exercise their usual caution with their prospects.
