Tonight at 8:00 (central time), Episode 4 of Seth's Twins On Deck Podcast will go live. Tonight, he'll be joined by three Minnesota Twins prospects, including one with a strong opportunity to start the season with the big league club, and another senior on the Minnesota Gophers roster. Tonight, he'll also be joined by a gentleman who scouted a lot of Chattanooga Lookouts games in 2017.

Tune in at 8:00 tonight to listen live. If you can't listen live, it will be available at the same link shortly following the show's completion.

Tune in live at 8:00 central time tonight when Seth will again be joined by five guests.

Leading off will be a guy who could be in the Twins leadoff position at times throughout the 2018 season, Zack Granite. He burst onto the prospect scene when he was the Twins Minor League Player of the Year in 2016. He built upon that success with another strong 2017 which included his MLB debut and a spot on the Twins playoff roster.

Baseball in Puerto Rico continues to be very strong. On this show, we'll be joined by infielder Nelson Molina who spent most of the 2017 season in Ft. Myers with the Miracle, though he also got some games in Chattanooga.

Lewis Thorpe missed two seasons due to Tommy John surgery and illness, but he made his return in 2017 and pitched very well with the Miracle. Following the season, he was added to the Twins 40-man roster and recently participated in his first Twins Fest.

Chris Blessing is a prospect writer for Baseball HQ and USA Today Sports Media. One of the teams he saw most frequently was the Chattanooga Lookouts. We'll discuss some Lookouts players for his thoughts, but also about the art and science of scouting a ballplayer.

Finally, we will be joined by another member of the Minnesota Gophers baseball program. (Still awaiting verification and will update with a name at that time.

If you have any questions for any of these guests, please feel free to leave them in the comments below. I'll ask them during the show. If you are listening during the live show, I will also ask for questions on my Twitter feed, so you can ask questions there as well.

You can listen live, or you can listen later. Either way, you'll want to listen and learn more about some Twins minor leaguers and more.

For Chris: what did he see from Nick Gordon in the second half, and also if he has any thoughts on his struggles against lefties? Thanks.

For Zack:Tougher catch at the wall (in his mind)...the one where he robbed Manny Machado of an extra base hit at Target Field or the home run saving catch off the bat of Will Myers of the Padres?

For Zack: His thoughts on playing in a playoff game in Yankee Stadium after growing up nearby in Staten Island and attending games in the Bronx as a kid?

For Lewis:What level of minor league ball would you most compare the Aussie League to?Rookie League, A ball, Advanced A?

 

For Chris: From your experience in watching young ballplayers,what is the toughest transition they need to make during the jump from A-ball to AA?For both hitters and pitchers?
