MLB Prospects Update: Hottest, Coldest Hitters at Every Minor League Level
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Miguel Sano has posted a 1.222 OPS with 10 home runs this season at High-A Fort Myers.

I don’t know what the Minnesota Twins are feeding their young hitters, but I want some.

In all seriousness, the team’s top position prospects have been absolutely raking to begin the 2013 season.

At the top of the list is third baseman Miguel Sano, obviously, as he’s already posted gaudy numbers in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League (High-A). Meanwhile, playing alongside Sano at Fort Myers is Eddie Rosario, a 21-year-old left-handed hitter who possesses one of the more underrated hit tools in the minor leagues.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Top draft pick Byron Buxton has nearly mastered Low-A after only five weeks, and he’s pacing the Midwest League in nearly every offensive category. Not to be outdone, teammate and fellow outfielder Adam Brett Walker II (ABW2) has also put up big power numbers thus far. But the fact that he’s done so as a 21-year-old in Low-A does make it less impressive.

Anyway, enough of my gushing about Twins’ prospects.

Here’s a look at this week’s hottest and coldest hitters at every minor league level.
