Minnesota Twins: Ranking the Top 5 Prospects We should See in 2022
The Minnesota Twins farm system is one of the better groups in Major League baseball, ranking 15th in the league by MLB.com. That may seem low, but with most of their top prospects at Double-AA or higher, the Twins are reaping the rewards of maintaining a deep and stable wealth of young talent.
Despite the graduation of Alex Kirilloff, Trevor Larnach, Ryan Jeffers, and Bailey Ober, this system still has plenty of talent within its ranks and the potential for several MLB regulars to bolster the roster for the 2022 Twins.
The Minnesota Twins will see a several prospects debut next year, so we broke down the 5 best.
Similar to those four players, the Twins will likely see several names on the prospect list make their first big league appearance next year, especially if the team doesn’t make enough moves to get back in contention.
For this list, we’ll rank the best players that we should see in the upcoming year. We won’t include players like Joe Ryan, Edwar Colina, or Jovani Moran, as the trio have made their big league debuts already (despite still being considered prospects).
I’ll also get this out of the way too: Royce Lewis and Austin Martin don’t make an appearance here either. If either player makes the big league roster out of training camp, I’ll be stunned. I don’t realistically expect the duo to make a big impact on the roster until 2023.
The rankings will be based off of three things: overall prospect ranking, usefulness to the Twins, and when in the season they’re likely to be called up. With 8 of the Twins Top 10 prospects at AA or higher, this should be a fun list. Let’s get it started as we always do with a couple of honorable mentions.
