Minnesota Twins fans have already seen many of the team’s top prospects this season.
Aaron Hicks began the year as the leadoff hitter and starting center fielder and held a spot on the roster until getting injured earlier this month.
Oswaldo Arcia was called up shortly after the season started and hit for power, but struggled to handle off-speed stuff and was sent down for a short period of time before getting the call a second time.
Most recently, Kyle Gibson got the call after being passed up for Samuel Deduno and P.J. Walters earlier in the season. His first start will come against the Kansas City Royals on Saturday, June 29, according to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press. Much is expected of the 25-year-old righty, who was on the fast track to the majors before undergoing Tommy John surgery last year.
Pedro Hernandez and Chris Herrmann also got a stint with the Twins this year, meaning that many of the players in the high minors already have been to Target Field this season.
There are still a couple guys in waiting that have a chance to get the call, but most of the team’s best prospects are still in the low minors and are unlikely to make an appearance this season.
This list is in no exact order, as it consists of prospects who have a chance to crack the major league roster this year, however, the best prospects appear later in the slideshow.
