5 Questions with Twins Prospect Travis Blankenhorn
Image courtesy of Seth Stohs, Twins DailyBlakenhorn has been younger than the average age of the competition at every stop in his professional career. Now entering his age-23 season, he has been added to the Twins 40-man roster and he is waiting for his chance to prove himself at the big-league level. His versatility and baseball instincts could make him a valuable piece of the Twins in the not-so-distant future.
Twins Daily (TD): How is preparation for this season different from other years?
Travis Blankenhorn (TB): I have some weights in my basement and some nets to hit into, so I’ve been able to continue working out and training for baseball.
TD: You’ve played five different defensive positions during your professional career. Which position are you most comfortable at and why?
TB: I’m just trying to be the most versatile player to get in the lineup.
TD: The Twins added you to the 40-man roster this off-season. What did it feel like when you got that news?
TB: Getting that news was great. It was fun to enjoy the night with my family.
TD: If you were writing a scouting report on yourself, what would it say?
TB: Hard working, with the ability to play anywhere.
TD: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
TB: I’ll take teleportation so I can go wherever I want whenever I want. I think I could get around the bases pretty fast that way too. Haha
