Twins Minor League Leader Board - Pitchers

Earlier today, I posted the Twins Minor League Leader Board for the hitters. Now comes the leader board among Twins minor league pitchers. Pitchers are more difficult to compare against each other. Comparing starting pitchers with relievers is really difficult. So, what I've done is set two limits for many of these categories. I used a 40 inning limit, and then I used an 80 innings limit. There have been a couple of starters who have pitched well and consistently in the minors this year. There have been a handful of relievers that have put up very good numbers.

Here is a look at the pitching leaders in the Twins minor league system (through games played on Saturday, August 11):
