Twins Spotlight: Episode 17 (Chris Vallimont)

On Thursday night (6:00 central time), Seth will be chatting with Twins minor league RHP Chris Vallimont on a new episode of Twins Spotlight.

The discussion was live on the Twins Daily social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube pages.

Chris Vallimont came to the Twins at the July 2019 trade deadline. Along with Sergio Romo, Vallimont came from the Marlins organization in exchange for first baseman Lewin Diaz. He finished that season with four starts for the Ft. Myers Miracle.

Then came 2020 and we'll find out how that year was for the lanky right-hander.

The Erie, Pennsylvania, native stayed home after high school and attended Division II Mercyhurst College. As a junior, he struck out 147 batters in 80 1/3 innings and led his team to the Division II World Series.

The Marlins drafted him in the fifth round of the 2018 draft.

He's an intriguing prospect who has good size, a big arm with a fastball that sits 95 and 96 but has touched 98 at times, a changeup, and of course, both a slider and a curveball that can be very good.

Seth- Is there a 2021 Twins Prospect Handbook?

I was pretty excited when the Twins got Vallimont in that trade.His 2019 numbers looked pretty good to me. throws mid 90's has good K rate and WHIP.Granted he was only in High A but the numbers looked solid to me.I was really hoping to see if he improve on those number or at least keep them the same as he moved up but 2020 was lost season for everyone.

 

I liked getting a chance to see what he had to say about his approach to pitching and happy to hear he liked the how the Twins were handling their pitchers.Here's to hoping he is starter material and reaches his potential.

Not yet... still not sure if I'll work on it for the next 5-6 weeks or just skip the year and do more content here on the site?
