You may have seen Codyís 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 hereís 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,
Today's baseball news was focused primarily on 12 players who received 50-game PED suspensions and one other who received a 211-game suspension and has decided to appeal. I haven't turned on ESPN, but I'm sure you could get a more in-depth run-down on these 13 players within 30 seconds on turning it on.
Fortunately, no Twins were involved. Former Twin Danny Valencia was investigated and cleared. It turns out he had higher-than-normal amount of "swag", but nothing illegal from Biogenesis.
Happy Trade Deadline Eve! All is still quiet on the Twins front, though activity around baseball has started to heat up. Division rivals Detroit and Chicago have already been active (with Bostonís help). Detroit added SS Jose Iglesias to replace Jhonny Peralta (who will be suspended soon) while Chicago traded Jake Peavy to the Red Sox. The White Sox get in return OF prospect Avisail Garcia (from Detroit - who might rank as their new #1 prospect) as well as other minor-league prospects.
