Twins Florida Instructional League Roster

Every year following the long minor league season, the Twins invite many prospects and recent draft picks back to Ft. Myers for the Florida Instructional League. For the most part, this time is pretty self-explanatory. It is a place for extra instruction for young players. For 2012 draft picks, it is likely a preview of what to expect from minor league spring training next March. Sometimes, players go to “Instructs” to learn a new position or a secondary position. You’ll notice at least one position player doing that this year. It's also a place for players who missed time for whatever reason to get extra time. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
Along with the instruction, teams do play games. It is very similar to Extended Spring Training. The Red Sox, Orioles and Rays have nearby facilities, so there are games. We won’t get any official statistics, but occasionally we get some reports on how players are doing.

With that introduction, here is a look at the players who will be participating in Florida Instructional League starting next week.

PITCHERS


DJ Baxendale, Jose (JO) Berrios, Hudson Boyd, Josh Burris, JT (Jon) Chargois, Tyler Duffey, Andrew Ferreira, Dallas Gallant, Tyler Jones, Zach Jones, Yorman Landa, Brett Lee, Austin Malinowski, Andre Martinez, Chris Mazza, Mason Melotakis, Kaleb Merck, Josue Montanez, Luis Nunez, Hein Robb, Gonzalo Sanudo. (note – Luke Bard will be there rehabbing)


CATCHERS


Kelly Cross, Jorge Fernandez, Tyler Grimes, Matt Koch, Bryan Santy


INFIELDERS


Niko Goodrum, Travis Harrison, DJ Hicks, Aderling Mejia, Levi Michael, German Minier, Jorge Polanco, Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano, Daniel Santana, Kennys Vargas


OUTFIELDERS


Byron Buxton, Romy Jimenez, Max Kepler, Zach Larson, Jeremias Pineda, Jake Proctor, Dereck Rodriguez, Adam Walker


When there are games, the team will be managed by Tommy Watkins with Henry Bonilla as his pitching coach. GCL manager Ramon Borrego , New Britain manager Jeff Smith and FT. Myers hitting coach Jim Dwyer will also be on the coaching staff. Pitching Coordinator Eric Rasmussen and Hitting Coordinator Bill Springman will work there. Paul Molitor will also be there as an instructor.

This is a good opportunity for more instruction for young developing players.
