ID:	8310What an interesting day in Twins Territory!

    It was announced this afternoon that the Twins were awarded the 4th pick in Comp Round B of the 2015 MLB Draft. (This is fantastic news... especially for me!) Adding a pick like this will give the Twins around $800,000 extra in their draft pool.

    Shortly after that, the Twins completed a Anthony Swarzak-led victory. And after that, Matt Guerrier was designated for assignment.

    Of course, ...
  2. The Future Arrived (But Only for One Day)

    It's always exciting - at least for me - to get to see guys play well before they are major leaguers. Whether it's watching Brian Dozier play for the Beloit Snappers or sit in the Metrodome during a blizzard watching a Tom Windle/Sean Manaea match-up, I enjoy it. I'm no scout, but trying to project how these guys will be against the greatest baseball players in the world is an exercise I enjoy doing.

    Yesterday, then, would classify as a highlight of my baseball-watching experience. ...
  3. Twins Minor League Report (6/23): Berrios, Roberts Lead Miracle

    The Twins have a scheduled off day before starting a series in Anaheim against the Angels.

    The club is expected to make a move before tomorrow's game. The belief is that they'd like to get down to 12 pitchers. While the exact moves are unknown, it should be noted that Chris Herrmann was replaced in tonight's game for no apparent reason.

    We should know more tomorrow.

    Moving on to Monday's action:

  4. Twins Minor League Report (6/16): May Annexes June 16th

    The Twins opened up their annual Fenway Series on Monday night with Kevin Correia looking to defend his spot in the rotation.

    Saturday's injuries to Trevor Plouffe (who went on the disabled list with a rib injury) and Eduardo Nunez (who's day-to-day with a hamstring issue) led to Sunday's recall of Pedro Florimon. The Deduno Rotation Watch continues, but, as you'll read later, we can eliminate one possibility.

  5. Twins Minor League Report (6/2): Thorpe, Romero and a bunch of losses

    The Twins and Brewers started a four-game home-and-home set Monday night. Between this series and the upcoming draft, there should be plenty of newsworthy topics.

    But the newsiest news dropped after the Kernels game when Jake Mauer informed the media that Ps Derrick Penilla and Felix Jorge were being sent back to extended spring training. He couldn't confirm who would be taking their places, but floated Ps Lewis Thorpe and Fernando Romero as possibilities.

  6. Twins Minor League Report (4/28): The Pitchin' Was Bit... Awesome!

    With the Twins off on Monday, the focus of the sports world in the state of Minnesota is on the Wild, as they work to force a game seven against the Avalanche.

    Byron Buxton returned to Extended Spring games yesterday and was rusty. Minor League Director Brad Steil said today that Buxton should be joining the Miracle within two weeks.

  7. Top 20 Prospects

    As the Handbook receives it's finishing touches - and if you follow Seth on Twitter, you know it will be available very soon - I decided that I should put my list on here to get picked apart. Seth and Cody already made their choices public, so what the heck.

    Romero is a long ways away and still has plenty of question marks, but the upside is evident.

  8. Twins Minor League Report (8/19): Pitchers Get It Done... AGAIN!

    We've been dealing with dreadful pitching in the major leagues pretty much everyday since... well... 2011. Today was more of the same. In fact, Kyle Gibson was sent back to Rochester after today's outing.

    There were some other minor league moves as well. A.J. Pettersen was moved from New Britain to Fort Myers along with Matthew Summers. To make room, Fort Myers sent Alex Swim back across the street.

    On a positive note, those in the FSNorth viewership got to see a glimpse ...
  9. Twins Minor League Report (8/18): Pitchers Get It Done

    The Twins remain in the 7th slot for the 2014 MLB Draft if the season ended today. It will be an interesting six weeks as only four games separate the 4th pick from the 15th pick. The Twins are currently 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs (who would pick 4th) and only 2.5 games behind Colorado (who would pick 15th).

    The Red Wings announced this morning that OF Antoan Richardson would be activated and UTIL Brian Dinkelman would be placed on the DL with a quad strain.

    This afternoon, ...
  10. Twins Minor League Report (7/8):

    Monday morning got out to a quick - and good - start when Baseball America released their mid-season Top 50.

    Byron Buxton was ranked the #1 prospect in all of baseball.

  11. Twins Minor League Report: Berrios Debuts

    It's April 22, yet we're experiencing another snowstorm. The Twins were postponed and will play a split-doubleheader tomorrow (hopefully; I wouldn't bet on it). And despite having a day-off Wednesday, there won't be a game because the Marlins have 20 straight days with games starting Thursday, so they can't play Wednesday.

    Only three affiliates were in action today, let's see how they did:
