Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: Recap

We've spent the past couple weeks profiling our picks for the Top 20 (and beyond) prospects in the Minnesota Twins organization. Now, as spring training gets underway in earnest, these exciting young talents will bring the team's minor-league complex to life.

Let's step back and take stock of the Twins' system as it stands entering the 2020 season.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #1 SS Royce Lewis

Over the past two weeks, we have been counting down our Top 20 Minnesota Twins prospects. The system is remarkably deep but also contains some elite, high-ceiling talent. You've seen that the last few days, but today we announce that shortstop Royce Lewis is again the choice for the organization's Number 1 prospect.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #2 Alex Kirilloff

At this point last season, Alex Kirilloff was coming off one of the strongest seasons in the entire minor leagues. Unfortunately, injuries hampered him throughout the 2019 season as he played the entire year at Double-A. Now healthy, Kirilloff will try to get back to the player he was in 2018 and continue to get closer to Target Field.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #4 Brusdar Graterol

Brusdar Graterol is a Dodger, of course, but we passed the point of no return in terms of adjusting our list. Instead of our usual breakdown of what’s to like, what’s left to work on and what’s next, I thought it would be more interesting to have a conversation about ranking prospects in general.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #5 Jordan Balazovic

Who is the best pitching prospect in the Twins system? That answer has changed several times over the past few years as promising arms have jockeyed for top billing on this list and others. From Jose Berrios to Fernando Romero to Brusdar Graterol...

Now, a new contender emerges.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #6 Jhoan Duran

Brusdar Graterol is no longer part of the Twins organization, but the club still has a triple-digit flame thrower in the minor leagues. Jhoan Duran came to the Twins from the Diamondbacks as part of the Eduardo Escobar trade. Since that time, he has continued to move up prospect rankings and he could be a top-100 prospect at this time next season.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #7 Ryan Jeffers

Ryan Jeffers epitomizes the depth of Minnesota's system. To have a player of this caliber – a two-way standout at catcher who's done nothing but perform as a pro, reaching Double-A within two years of being drafted – ranked seventh?!

Well, it's much more a credit to the guys above him than a knock on Jeffers, who beams with promise at a premium position.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #8 SS Keoni Cavaco

Today, we continue our Top 20 prospect rankings series with a look at our choice as the Twins #8 prospect. If prospect rankings were based solely on tools and ceiling, Keoni Cavaco would likely rank much higher on this list.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #9 Brent Rooker

The Minnesota Twins are not short on slugging talents presently, but that doesn't negate the excitement of having a truly prodigious power hitter, fresh off crushing at the highest level of the minors, ready to join the big-league ranks.

Brent Rooker has left little doubt that he can hit. All he needs now is an opportunity.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: #10 RHP Blayne Enlow

This week, the Twins traded one of their top pitching prospects (pending physicals), but for the first time in a long time, there are pitching prospects-a-plenty in the Twins system. You saw some really good pitching prospects in our 11-20 prospect rankings earlier this week, and more in the Honorable Mention list. As we jump into the top ten Twins prospects, we profile a very young, very talented Twins pitching prospect.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: 11-15

Fresh draft picks and international signings rule over this next segment of our 2020 Minnesota Twins top prospect rankings, which are brimming with dynamic talents of all kinds.

Twins Daily 2020 Top Prospects: 16-20

As we embark on our Minnesota Twins 2020 prospect list, it’s important to keep in mind this is a deep system. There’s not a huge gap between the 16th prospect and the 36th. Sorting everyone out is difficult, but that’s why we combined the opinions of four Twins Daily writers. Let’s get into it ...
