Yunior Severino, INF

While it was looking like Brooks Lee would be the next top prospect to get called up, Yunior Severino might end up being the infielder we see hit the MLB roster first.

He lit up the farm last season, hitting 24 homers in 87 games at Double-A Wichita and then loudly announced himself at St. Paul in a way that should excite Twins fans hoping to see some offensive sparks at the plate.

The downside is that things haven't gone so great for him with the Saints so far this season. Severino is hitting a nearly unplayable .059 in ten games which is a far cry from the .320/.511/.832 he slashed last season. He also hit 11 home runs after making the jump to Triple-A, finishing the Eason with 35 total which is more along the lines of what we'd like to think his production level is.

What he's producing now is concerning, and isn't exactly what a struggling Twins offense needs. That being said, he fills a need in the infield and can free up Kyle Farmer and Willi Castro to platoon the left side of the infield, or could play behind Jose Miranda at third base to provide some depth.

It's not ideal, but we're getting to the point where beggars can't be choosers.
