3 Current Twins That Were Late-Blooming Prospects

Not every top prospect is going to make it at the big-league level and there will be plenty of unranked prospects that become significant contributors. Minnesota’s farm system has been strong in recent years and this has helped to form the team’s current core. However, there are players on the roster that took time to develop.

Josh Donaldson, Bringer of Rings

The Minnesota Twins will never be the same. This is a transformational signing. This is that first statement signing a team needs, when it matures into the kind of organization that can compete for top talent with those in bigger markets. At the plate, in the field, and on the books, Donaldson is just perfect for this team, at this moment.

A Bigger Twins Problem Than Pitching

If you’ve given any thought at all to the Twins deficiencies this offseason, the chief concern has likely been the starting rotation. Two guys returned and two new names were added, but there’re still glaring holes in that group.

On Steps and Sano

The Twins and Miguel Sano announced their contract extension on Tuesday morning. The new guaranteed deal could keep Sano in a Twins uniform for two extra years, through the 2023 season. “Regardless of winning or losing, I think I made up my mind that I want to spend my entire career here,” Sano said in a press conference. “This is the first step.”

It really wasn’t.

Should the Minnesota Twins Consider Signing These 3 Prospects to a Long-term Deal?

The Twins extension of Miguel Sano marks the third long-term agreement Minnesota has come to with its relatively young core in the past 11 months. This is great news, and while it would be nice to add Jose Berrios and Byron Buxton to the list, the Twins might also want to shift their attention to the possibility of extending some of the next wave.

Have the Twins Been Getting Beaten by Cheaters?

On Monday, sanctions came down on the Houston Astros following the revelation of their illegal sign-stealing practices. Soon after, a former Minnesota Twin spoke out and suggested that this issue runs deeper than anyone wants to believe.

One wonders if we're just scratching the surface.
