Who is Hot in the Twins minors? 2012 version 1

Originally published at The Tenth Innning Stretch
-----
This is the first version of the 'who is hot in the Twins' minors' series for 2012. I have been doing this for a few years now and 3 weeks into the 2012 season, there are enough IPs and PAs and is about time I get the first version of 2012 out. I will be updating those in pretty much monthly basis.

Attached Image: 7098789651_02fb66b359_z.jpg About a month into the minor league seasons now, it is not surprising to confirm that the Twins have a nice pitching depth in all levels of their minors (including LHP, which has been one of the organizational weaknesses in recent seasons. It is nice to see a balance between leftie and righty arms, even though it is early in the season) There are several pitchers in Rochester who might jump in and contribute with the big team, as necessary.

The bats are a bit cool this time of the year, but it is nice to see that the Twins' top prospects are pretty hot. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
Speaking on top prospects, Angel Morales after a lost 2011, is quickly putting himself back to the top prospect list. Also nice, as far as the big club goes, is the fact that Brian Dozier and Mike Hollimon are hot in Rochester, in case the Twins need middle infield help (the only position that is not backed up well in the major league club).

Here is the list, going from AAA to A. The clubs represented are AAA Rochester Red Wings, International League, AA New Britain Rock Cats, Eastern League, A+ Fort Myers Miracle, Florida State League, A Beloit Snappers, Midwest League:
