Those All-Star games approximate the halfway point of the minor league season. Two-and-a-half months of season have passed and there is just about two-and-a-half months remaining. I thought it would be a good time to look at some of the top performers in the Twins farm system so far this season by looking at the leader boards in the organization in several statistics. Today, I'll look at the hitters. Later in the week weíll take a look at the pitchers.
1.) Jorge Polanco Ė Ft. Myers - 313
2.) Nate Hanson - New Britain - 300
3.) Adam Walker - Ft. Myers - 299
4.) James Beresford - Rochester - 298
5.) Kennys Vargas - New Britain - 291
This is a list that shows a lot of guys at the top of their team's order who have remained healthy and have performed well enough to remain there.

Last week, the Midwest League (MWL) and the Florida State League (FSL) hosted their league All Star games. The Cedar Rapids Kernels had three players on the MWL roster while the Ft. Myers Miracle had four on the FSL South roster.
