Minnesota Twins: 2020 Preseason Top 30 Prospects
By Otto Johnson
With the Minnesota Twins starting the season in less than twenty days, Puckett’s Pond ranks the Twins’ Top 30 prospects.
The Minnesota Twins have one of the top farm systems in all of baseball, with a very deep group of prospects that are getting ready to make the jump to the majors. The system is led by former No. 1 pick Royce Lewis, but the order of who comes after him is all up for grabs.
After a rather disappointing 2019 for the system as a whole, we took a look at who barely survived the season and who improved. Each hitter is graded for on the five tools for batters: hitting (contact), power, running, arm, and field. Each pitcher is graded on their fastball, changeup, each of their other pitches, and control. Then each grade is put together for an overall. The highest grades in the system can be found here.
Otto Johnson and Brandon Copley graded all thirty players and ranked them all to create the official Puckett’s Pond Top 30 prospects, a list that will be updated throughout the season. With the season less than three weeks away, it’s time to officially begin with No. 30.
