Minnesota Twins: 5 Most Underrated Prospects in Their System

Deolis Guerra used to be a top prospect in the Twins' system, but has fallen in recent years. So why is he underrated?

The Minnesota Twins have been undergoing changes in the way they treat prospects. In the Bill Smith era, prospects were used to getting more players to help a team that was poised to make a run in the playoffs. As the 2011 season evidenced, this wasn't the best way for the franchise to go.

It led to former Twins general manager Terry Ryan returning to the team on an interim basis. Under Ryan, the team built one of the strongest minor league systems in baseball.

It was such a machine that if an important player got hurt, the Twins could dip into Rochester and plug someone else in.

As the Twins are looking to get back to those days, it's important to look at prospects who may not be the most highly touted in the system. While prospects like Miguel Sano and Kyle Gibson will make an impact, the Twins will need to find lower-level prospects that can contribute.

Here's a look at some of the guys in the Twins' system you may not have heard of but who could start to make some noise in the near future.
