Minnesota Twins: 5 Potential Replacement Options for Eddie Rosario
Minnesota Twins Eddie Rosario Replacement No. 3: Trevor Larnach
Another option from down on the farm, Trevor Larnach was the Twins first round draft choice in 2018 and is the third Top 100 player behind Kirilloff and Lewis in the Twins farm system rankings. To put it simply, he can hit.
In just under 170 games in the minors, he slashed .307/.385/.468. That’s really good, and the fact that he’s got a little bit of power potential makes his bat a must watch. The Twins could use a hitter that could do both.
With that in mind, Larnach isn’t perfect. He’s still a prospect for a reason, and similar to Schwarber, strikeouts are high for the 23 year old. He is also limited as a fielder, but that bat may be too good to keep down.
Larnach’s other advantage is his playoff experience. The Oregon State product left Corvallis with a College World Series ring in hand thanks in large part to his clutch hitting, something the Twins could use come playoff time in November. Noticing a pattern here?
It would be a bit of a gamble for the Twins to bring up Larnach over Kirilloff, who’s already made a big league debut of sorts, but with the ways he’s been in control at the plate, it’s hard to see him sitting in the minor leagues for much longer.
