If you were to tell me at the beginning of the season that the Minnesota Twins would enter into May around .500 (now at .500 after be victorious against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday afternoon), I definitely would have taken it.
If you would have told me that Kevin Correia was going to be the ace of the staff…well, I would have said I told you so. Seriously, I did. Click this.
That was, of course, after I ripped Correia in an earlier article, so take it as you may. Hopefully I just saw the future.
Speaking of the future, it is bright for the Minnesota Twins. The minor league clubs are a combined 63-38 so far this year with most help coming from the high Class-A Fort Myers Miracle who are 21-4 and low Class-A Cedar Rapids Kernels who are 18-6 on the year.
Plenty of prospects are going to be moving up soon, so let’s grade the top 10 Twins prospects and see how they have done one month into the baseball season.
The top 10 Twins prospects are based on MLB.com’s list of the top 20 prospects per team. I have exempted three of MLB.com’s 10: Aaron Hicks since he has played all season at the major league level and outfielder Max Kepler and reliever J.T. Chargois are exempt since their rookie-ball season has not yet begun.
Stats are all from the players respective player pages at MILB.com.
