The MLB Draft is coming up this Sunday, and the Minnesota Twins will have the chance to select an elite talent with their highest pick since they went with Royce Lewis at No. 1 overall back in 2017.
This is a really big draft for the front office. Since Lewis was picked in their first draft class in 2017, they’ve struggled quite a bit to draft and develop their talent. Most of the Twins top prospects have underperformed, and Keoni Cavaco and Aaron Sabato (the team’s 2019 and 2020 first rounders) look like busts.
The team needs some talent in their system quickly, especially considering the fact that they’ll likely be shipping out at least one of their top prospects in a trade soon. Drafting at No. 8, No. 48, and No. 68 the team has to nail these picks (they lost their third round pick for signing Carlos Correa).
We rank the Top 10 players the Minnesota Twins should draft at No. 8.
For our list of Top 10 Prospects for the Twins to pick, I didn’t add Druw Jones, Elijah Green, Termarr Johnson, and Jackson Holliday, my Top 4 MLB Draft prospects (in that order) because there would have to be some drastic surprises for the Twins to land one of them at 8.
Not to worry though; there’s still plenty of talent, and the Twins will have a chance to draft any of these guys. Whether it’s a college bat that could move quickly through the system or a high schooler with some upside, let’s get into it, starting with number ten.
