Twins Winter League Update - 10/29/13

You may have seen Cody’s update earlier today on how the Twins prospects have done while playing in Arizona so far this fall.

There are some other leagues underway in the warmer parts of the world and here’s an update on those players.

This only includes players that are under contract to the team. Expected minor-league free agents are not included. *Stats through 10/28, in order of #Impressiveness

Dominican Winter League:
  • Jorge Polanco: 7 G, 11-for-28, 7 R, 3 2B, HR, 5 BB, 3 K, 2 SB, .393/.438/.607
[PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
Jorge Polanco has had a very positive start to his winter. If Polanco follows the same development path as Eddie Rosario, we could see him competing for a spot sometime in 2014. While the debate has been if Rosario or Brian Dozier should be considered the 2B of the future, Polanco should definitely be a part of that discussion.
