Minnesota Twins: 2022 Midseason Top 50 Prospects, No. 50-21
The 2022 Draft is in the rearview mirror, and with the the Trade Deadline quickly approaching, the Minnesota Twins are going to need to make a move. This will be mean dipping into the farm system, so with new prospects, there’s no time like the present to rerank that prospect group.
To start off 2022, I ranked the Twins Top 50 prospects, and with a good chunk of the 2022 Minor League season in the past, we have a lot more information about the players. Some struggled. Some proved themselves.
We re-rank the Minnesota Twins Top 50 Prospects after the MLB Draft.
We’ll start off by talking about the players that I moved off the list, starting with the graduating class: Joe Ryan (No. 4), Jose Miranda (No. 8), and Gilberto Celestino (No. 17) exhausted their rookie status. Josh Winder (No. 6), Jhoan Duran (No. 10), Jovani Moran (No. 28) are all just about there, so I removed them too.
Chase Petty (No. 7) and Ben Rortvedt (No. 41) were also traded, so they don’t appear on the list. Chris Vallimont (No. 36) was DFA’d. Drew Strotman (No. 24), Jordan Gore (No. 30), Yennier Cano (No. 39), Wander Javier (No. 34), Jeferson Morales (No. 40), Zach Featherstone (No. 46), Samuel Perez (No. 49) all fell off due to continued underperformance or lower value as relievers.
With 15 players missing off the list from the beginning of the season, there’s a lot of talent to replace, but the Twins have a deep enough farm system to fill it, so we start off with the lower prospects on the list and we’ll work our way up to the Top. In addition, as this is a big list, we split it up into two parts, so 50-25 will be released today. Let’s get into it.
