The Twins Minors' Top 25 - 4/24/13

Attached Image: 8606001039_53154c362b_z.jpg For a few years now, I have been doing a feature, pretty much on a monthly basis, which was called "Who is hot in the Minesota Twins' minors" (you can see last seasons' versions here.) This included a list of the best players in the Twins' system, based on cumulative performance year to date, broken down by position.

I am giving it a new twist this year: I am listing the best team of 25 players in the Twins' organization, by position based on cumulative performance. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK] This is listed as a 25-man roster squad with starters, bench, rotation and a pen. No batting order. Ages, handedness and team are listed along with the stats. This is the first one and I will be doing these every 3-4 weeks.

This first version of the Twins' top 25 in the minors is led by players from the Fort Myers Miracle and Cedar Rapids Kernels, teams that are dominating their leagues. There is also representation from the Rochester Red Wings and New Britain Rock Cats squads. This is from a small sample size and the results can be skewed, especially on the pitching side. And of course there are some surprises.

The 2013 Twins minor leagues best 25 are:

Starters:

C - Josmil Pinto (RHB, 24, AA) : .294/.400/.544, 4 HR, 15 RBI, 80 PA

3B - Miguel Sano (RHB, 20, A+) : .384/.439/.740, 7 HR, 19 RBI, 1 SB, 82 PA
SS - AJ Petersen (RHB, 24, A+) : .345/.418/.448, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 2 SB, 68 PA
OF - Byron Buxton (RHB, 19, A) : .404/.514/.614, 2 HR, 10 RBI, 7 SB, 70 PA
