Seth's Twins On Deck Podcast (Episode 5)

Tonight at 8:00 (central time), Episode 5 of Seth's Twins On Deck Podcast will go live. Tonight, he'll be joined by four Minnesota Twins prospects each of who is relatively new to the organization and another senior on the Minnesota Gophers roster.

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.

Charlie Barnes was the Twins fourth-round pick out of Clemson. After signing with the Twins, he went to Elizabethton where he went 2-1 with a 1.19 ERA over six games and 22.2 innings. He moved up to Cedar Rapids where he went 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA over 25.2 innings. In 48.1 combined innings, he walked 18 and struck out 46.

Another new member of the organization is also a left-handed starter, Tyler Watson. The 6-5 southpaw was the 34th round pick of the Washington Nationals out of high school in 2015. He came to the Twins at the July 31 trade deadline in exchange for closer Brandon Kintzler. He reported to Cedar Rapids where he made five starts to close out the year.

David Banuelos was drafted in the fifth round just last June by the Seattle Mariners out of Long Beach State. He came to the Twins this offseason in exchange for some international slot dollars. The catcher is known for his great defense, but he put up some strong numbers in his final collegiate season.

Alex Robles was the Twins 30th round pick last summer out of Austin Peay in Tennessee. He was a two-way player all four seasons, and he was really good as a pitcher. However, as a pro, he is likely to play around the infield.

So, we’ll get to know four new members of the Twins organization.

In addition, we will be joined by another member of the Minnesota Gophers baseball program. Senior third baseman Micah Coffey hit .340/.396/.493 (.889) with 15 doubles, two triples, four homers and 46 RBI for the Gophers.

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.

Another fun show.... I apologize for the technical difficulties which cost the first five minutes of the show... but it still turned out fine.

 

Also, Micah Coffey messaged me to say that his phone died. We'll have him on again soon. 

 

But Charlie Barnes, Alex Robles, Tyler Watson and David Banuelos were all good interviews.

Thank you for doing these. I look forward to listening tonight or tomorrow.
