Minnesota Twins Prospects No. 10-6

No. 10: Jhoan Duran, RHP

We’ve reached one of the only prospects on this list that we expect to see on Opening Day: Jhoan Duran. Duran has been lights out in Spring Training this year, and even though there’s a question as to whether or not he’s a starter long term, Duran could be a weapon out of the bullpen. ETA: Opening Day

No. 9: Matt Canterino, RHP

Matt Canterino has some of the best stuff in the system and a track record of success, but he also is 24 and has made just 13 starts in pro ball. Similar to Enlow, Canterino should start the year in Double-AA. He also needs a big year to move up the ranks, but he could end up as a reliever a little later. ETA: Late 2023

No. 8: Jose Miranda, 3B/2B/1B

Whether or not Jose Miranda should or shouldn’t have made the Opening Day roster isn’t up for debate here. The first injury that happens to Gio Urshela, Luis Arraez, Miguel Sano, or Jorge Polanco, Miranda will arrive. I expect to see him soon. ETA: Early 2022

No. 6: Josh Winder, RHP

We skipped No. 7 because that was Chase Petty. As for Josh Winder, he’s in a similar spot to Miranda. He’ll be the first starter called up to the majors when any injuries occur and could be called up for a spot start. ETA: Early 2022
