Minnesota Twins Post-Draft Top-20 Prospects: 16-20

In the aftermath this year's MLB Draft, it can be fun to reevaluate where an organization stacks up in the prospect department. For better or worse, franchises can make it or break it with their selections in the draft. It's also important for teams to be able to build from within to help manage the bottom line.

Minnesota's top prospect list is littered with highly drafted players over the last handful of years. Players like Royce Lewis, Alex Kirilloff and Trevor Larnach have all been taken with first-round picks. Ideally, these players will form the nucleus of Minnesota's next championship winning club.

What's Next for the Twins and Undrafted Players?

It has been an unprecedented year in so many ways already. That includes the sports world, and obviously it affected the 2020 MLB Draft this week. Instead of 40 rounds, there were just five rounds, and now things will get really interesting as teams can sign undrafted players.

Minnesota Twins 2020 MLB Draft Recap

The 2020 MLB Draft will go down in history for not only being just five rounds long, but for the lack of scouting teams were able to do in the months leading up to the draft, thanks to the seasons being cut short by the coronavirus. This created a whole new set of challenges for MLB organizations like the Minnesota Twins. So, let’s take a look at how the Twins faired with their four picks in this year’s draft.

Twins Select Kala'i Rosario with the 158th Overall Pick

It's weird talking about the Twins making their last pick on the second day of the draft. It's even weirder talking about their fourth pick being their last pick. But here we are...

Twins Select Marco Raya with the 128th Overall Pick

After taking two college hitters in Aaron Sabato and Alerick Soularie, with their first and second round picks, respectively. In the fourth-round, the Twins selected their first pitcher of the draft, taking Marco Raya, a right-handed pitcher from Laredo, Texas.

Twins Select Alerick Soularie with the 59th Overall Pick

Derek Falvey and Thad Levine have followed certain draft trends since taking over as the architects of the Twins franchise. On Wednesday, those trends continued as the Twins added another powerful bat from the college ranks. Would the Twins follow any other trends with the second-round pick?

2020 MLB Draft Day 2 Thread

After a night where the Minnesota Twins added yet another powerful bat to their farm system that is loaded with them, they look to add three more new young and exciting prospects into the Twins minor league ranks, with picks in the second, fourth and fifth rounds.

Twins Select Aaron Sabato with the 27th Overall Pick

The Minnesota Twins have selected University of North Carolina first basemen Aaron Sabato with their first-round pick. Sabato has about as much power as any player in this draft, short of first overall pick Spencer Torkelson. He fits in nicely with how the Twins have drafted in recent years.

2020 MLB Draft Day 1 Thread

Be sure to refresh this page as we will be making updates throughout the night.

The 2020 MLB Draft is finally here. This was supposed to be an historic draft for Major League Baseball, as it was originally scheduled to take place in Omaha, Nebraska ahead of the College World Series. However, that all changed with the outbreak of COVID-19. Now, the MLB Draft will be historic for an entirely different reason, as it will consist of just five rounds, the fewest in MLB Draft history.

Twins Daily Minor League Draft: Rounds 13-16

The final four rounds of our draft were all about filling out our rosters and hoping to find those diamonds in the rough nobody else was looking at for positions of need. I’d wager there’s some names you had forgotten about in these final picks, and plenty of other guys you’ve read about in our Minor League reports.

Reviewing Minnesota's Recent First Round Picks

This week’s MLB Draft is certainly going to have a different look and feel. The draft will be limited to five rounds and many of the players being selected played little or no spring season due to the on-going pandemic. Because of their strong finish last season, the Twins will have the 27th overall pick in the first round. How has the club fared in recent drafts with their first-round selections?

Twins Daily Minor League Draft: Rounds 9-12

We kick off the back-half of the draft with rounds nine through 12. By this point, each drafter is digging fairly deep into their minor league knowledge for their picks.

Drafting at this point is not unlike searching for supplies during an apocalypse as you're really hoping that no one is looking where you're looking. Each snipe is even more brutal as there are generally very few players who can now replace the guy you were looking at.

Let us know who you think is shaping up to have the best roster after 12 full rounds.
