Minnesota Twins Top Prospects

Kyle GibsonHey, it's the offseason right? If you paid attention, the Minnesota Twins didn't make a huge splash this offseason. It just didn't happen. I'm okay with that though because we did upgrade in the infield with "Yoshi" and the contracts that Jesse Crain and Matt Guerrier got were too much in my opinion. We also gained a draft pick because of Orlando Hudson leaving and still have a chance to resign Jim Thome and Carl Pavano.

Anywho, instead of talking about who we didn't get or who we should get, how about we talk about who we have. Here are my Minnesota Twins Top Prospects currently:

1) Kyle Gibson - could make the rotation as early as this season. Big arm, big guy and hopefully can upgrade our 4/5 starter
2) Aaron Hicks - unlimited potential with high baseball IQ. Smart player that "could" be a 5 tool player, has speed, can field, can hit for average, and hopefully hit for power.
3) Miguel Sano - extremely young and raw but has scouts drooling over his game already
4)Alex Wimmers - very good command and control, a prototypical Twins arm. I feel I value him more than some other critics have given him credit for.
5) Ben Revere- saw a glimpse of him last season. You're gonna see with what you get from him, he has speed, field, and hit for average. Won't be a power guy by any means but the guy has a love for the game and can slap the ball around (Juan Pierre in my mind).
