    I feel I need to make a couple of clarifications about this list (which is a bit different that others.) First of all, I consider players who have played in the majors, as "graduating" from prospect status. You ...

    I have not attempted a full detailed one of those, but I think that with the Twins getting better this off-season and the possibility of trades of prospects for established players being a true possibility, I thought that it might be a good idea. There are a lot of prospect lists out there and they are all slightly different because different people value different qualities in a player, but they all serve a great singular ...

  8. Wednesday Graphic in Technicolor: The Twins pitchers and human rain delays in 2013

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch
    ---

    For most of the fans who watched the Minnesota Twins play in 2013, one thing was fairly obvious: the pitchers were taking their sweet time on the mound between pitches. I suspect that the collective gut feeling of the Twins' Territory is that it was bad, but how bad exactly was is?

    Mike Hargrove in his playing days was nicknamed the human rain delay because of his elaborate routine at the batter's box ...

  9. In the path that Brian Dozier blazed: A 2014 breakout candidate for the Twins

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch
    ----

    I think that it is fair to say that Brian Dozier's 2013 season (especially his power numbers) was not expected by many based on his fairly disappointing 2012 rookie season and his fairly flat minor league career. But was there anything is his path through the minors that could have acted as a leading indicator potentially predicting his 2013 breakout season?

    After he was drafted in the 8th ...

  10. The Dominos are falling: The Twins acquire Kris Johnson from the Pirates

    In the first trade of the 2013 off-season, the Minnesota Twins returned RHRP Duke Welker (whom they acquired in the Justin Morneau trade) to the Pittsburgh for LHSP Kris Johnson.

    Johnson (6'4", 190, 28 years old) is a former first round draft pick of the Boston Redsox (2006) and signed as a minor league free agent by the Pirates 2 years ago. He was listed as the Redsox' fourth best pitching prospect ...

  11. Twins SP Kevin Correia and target Bronson Arroyo: Eerie statistical similarities, but

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

    Twins' beat reporter Mike Berardino broke the news late Tuesday night that the Minnesota Twins were looking closely (but not yet negotiating) at the possibility of signing Bronson Arroyo, the 37 year old free agent pitcher lately of the Cincinnati Reds.

    The thought that immediately came to my mind was that the last thing the Twins need is another (and older version of) Kevin Correia, given my premise that the Twins need 3 starting pitchers better than Correia to compete. ...

  12. One Starting Pitcher the Twins should target in a trade

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch
    ----

    A week ago, I looked at the available starting pitchers who are free agents and I distilled the long list to three names who the Twins should target this off-season. The premise is that other than Alex Meyer and maybe Kyle Gibson, the Twins do not have any "sure bets" for the top of their rotation for next season and the near future that will coincide with the coming of age of uber prospects Miguel Sano and Byron ...

    It is not a secret, that the biggest problem the Minnesota Twins had in the past few woeful season, as far as players are concerned, is the lack of a reliable rotation. While a lot of fans are looking at 2015 or 2016 as the potential contenting point for the Twins, when Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton "come to age", the dirty secret is that there are not (other than Alex Meyer and potentially Kyle Gibson above A ...

  14. Performance, wRC+ and #PowerBananas: why Miguel Sano is the best MLB prospect

    Originally published at The Tenth Inning Stretch

    The art of evaluating performance inside a baseball diamond has undoubtedly changed the last few years with the infusion of science (math & statistic notations.) In the "good old days" if someone "hit 300", with more than 30 home runs and either more than 100 runs scored or 100 "ribies", he had a great season. That was the measuring stick that separated great from very good. And it still does, ...
