The Minnesota Twins' crop of young players in 2013 is much more exciting than years prior simply because they won't be filling in for injured or ineffective big leaguers. Instead, there will be a team full of healthy, young competition vying for spots on the major-league roster.

So who's most likely to jump out as a new everyday player?
2013's roster could be full of surprises both on the field and on the mound. But only a few will step up and leave an indelible mark on the franchise.
