Cody's Top 30 Prospects: Part 2 (20-11)

One of the highlights of the off-season for a core of Twins fans is the release of the Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook. Seth Stohs has worked to put together this fantastic book for the last seven years. In 2012, he gave me my first taste of helping with the book. By 2013, I was writing an article for the annual and for the last three years I have been among a trio of writers that includes Jeremy Nygaard, Stohs, and myself.

I already released the first part of my top 30 list, and there are some strong prospects making their way to Target Field.

Young For Their League

When developing prospect lists, one of many criteria that goes into the thinking is Age-to-Level data. High-ranking prospects are often guys with great tools who are performing at a level where they are very young. If you look near the top of the Top 30 prospect lists that Jeremy, Cody and I put together for the Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook 2015, you’ll see a lot of players who were very young for their level.

Get To Know: RHP Greg Peavey

Greg Peavey is one of the newest members of the Minnesota Twins organization. On Thursday, the Twins took the right-handed pitcher from the Mets organization in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 draft. I had the chance to catch up with Peavey and ask him a few questions. He was kind enough to respond and today I present the Q&A.

PROSPECT HANDBOOK PREVIEW: Injuries Plague Twins System in '14

For the third year in a row, Seth Stohs of TwinsDaily.com asked Jeremy Nygaard and myself to help him put together the annual off-season handbook that looks deep into one of the best minor league systems in all of baseball. Several other high quality writers helped to write articles for the book and this only adds to the over 200 pages of content.

It was our goal to get the paperback version out to the public before Christmas and we will meet our goal for the second year in a row.

Why I am excited to see Miguel Sano as a Twin... and why you should be too

Hopefully this story can bring you a little cheer for the holiday season, baseball season is right around the corner, hang in there!

While we all expected Miguel Sano to debut last season, we are still waiting to see him at Target Field. Having played with him for about 250 games, I have seen him do some incredible things. Here is why I am excited to see him in a Twins uniform and also why I think you will love watching him play in Minneapolis for many years.

2015 Breakout Prospects

It's hard to argue with the breakout season Jose Berrios put together in 2014. He dominated the Florida State League and held his own in the Eastern League while being 4 1/2 years younger than the average pitcher in that league. He was already a top ten prospect in the organization but he solidified himself as one of the top three pitchers in a loaded farm system.

All-Prospect Team of the Future

As the finishing touches are being put on the 2015 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook (CLICK HERE to order last year's version for 30% off), my mind has been focused on many of the young players who are making up one of the strongest farm systems in baseball. There are a lot of big names like Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano in the system and the hope is that those players turn out to be all-star caliber players for years to come.

Twins Feel Prospect Eddie Rosario Close to Major League Ready

When Mike Radcliff returned from Arizona he was hopeful with what he had seen from Eddie Rosario.

Among the organization’s prospects playing for the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League was the recently rehabilitated Rosario. The 23-year-old had served a fifty game suspension due to a failed marijuana test -- his second such offense. In the grand scheme, with a nation heading towards increasing tolerance and two major league cities allowing use of the recreational drug, it appeared less of a concern than the use of performance enhancing drugs to inflate his numbers. Nevertheless, rules were rules and Rosario had broken them. Twice.
