Starting at 10AM CST on Tuesday 4/16, you can adopt a Twins prospect in this thread. Just put down the players name and submit (http://twinsdaily.com/#) it and THEN CHECK TO MAKE SURE NOBODY POSTED THAT NAME BEFORE YOU. If someone has, you didn't get that player, but it's not big deal - just submit another post with someone else's name - and then make sure nobody posted THAT name before you. Lather, rinse and repeat until you get a name that nobody else did.

Once you reserve a name, you can start a thread. Just title the thread the name of the prospect like "Miguel Sano." First post must be an introduction of the player. The format of the post is up to the individual, but please be sure to get all the important information needed on the player. For Example, Name, Position, Handedness, Drafted/Signed/Acquired (out of where/what round), Previous Stats, etc. Feel free to make it as detailed as you want. (There are a lot of websites you could link to such as their Baseball (http://twinsdaily.com/#)-Reference, The Baseball Cube, First Inning, Fan Graphs, etc.)

We will post a message at approximately 10:00 CST saying that the Adoptions May Now Begin. Following that e-mail, submit your names! We'll occasionally post updates showing which players have been adopted by whom. Have efun!

If you're looking for names to consider, here is the Twins minor league page on Baseball-Reference.com, though I'd remind you there are players on the DL or still at Extended Spring Training that you can also adopt.

...or you could look at the Roster and Payroll page that lists every minor leaguer in the system.

Adopt A Prospect 2013 (http://twinsdaily.com/adopt-prospect-2013/)

Go to the Adopt a Prospect 2013 forum, at the top you can click on Post a New Thread (or Topic, or something like that). Then the title should be the name of the player and then write in the message.

I brought Darin Mastroianni some good luck when I picked him last year, after a brutal start at AA. Let's hope the magic rubs off on the enigmatic Benson.

Let's keep the Prospect Adopting going. If you have a prospect but haven't yet set up their forum thread, please do so in the next day or two. Thanks for participating. I'ts possible that we will have a second round soon in which we allow people to 'adopt' a second player. There are still a lot of prospects out there to be adopted, so we want to make sure they all get recognized!
