Minnesota Twins Top 50 Prospects: Summary

Over the past three weeks, I have been posting my choices for the top 50 Minnesota Twins Prospects. As the lists have been posted, there has been some tremendous discussion in the Comments about the lists. So below, I will post my top 50 as presented. I encourage you to let me know who is too high, or to low?

Then, I've been encouraging you to prepare your own person Top 10 or Top 20 or Top 50 Twins prospect list. It would be interesting to see who others rank where because we all have our own personal favorite prospects that we may rank a little higher than others. It's all part of the fun.[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

RH Starting Pitchers: 14
LH Starting Pitchers: 11
RH Relief Pitchers: 5
LH Relief Pitchers: 0
Catchers: 3
Corner Infielders: 6
Middle Infielders: 5
Oufielders: 6
