Before jumping into 1990's class, I have to add in a player born in 1988 who I mistakenly skipped over.
50. Lester Oliveros, RHR, DOB: 5/28/88
AAA, but 2013 GCL: 6.1 IP, 8 strikeouts, 3 walks.
Oliveros is making his way back from injury but is still a promising reliever. He should be off to AAA to start 2014 with a chance to make it again with the Twins soon.
Now, getting on with it.
There are 13 players born in 1990 who make it on
There are 20 players born in 1989 who make my end of 2013 Twins prospect list. I remember the very day that one of them was born, Michael Tonkin, because he was born on my ninth birthday and I remember it well. The 1989 bunch range from AAA/MLB players in Tonkin and Josmil Pinto down to current low-A pitchers, Tim Shibuya and Madison Boer.
10. Josmil Pinto, C, RH, DOB: 3/31/89
2013 AA/AAA/MIN (AA/AAA stats): 528 plate appearances, .309/.400/.482 (.882)
As the minor league seasons wind down and the trading period is over for the season, I have established my new Twins prospect list heading into the offseason. While I will post the full list at the end of this series, I decided to take a different approach and list the players not in rank order, but in year of birth order. Within each calendar year I then order players by level in the system, not by actual birthdate.
The period goes from 1986 to 1996, which was an interesting fact
