Blog Spotting: Draft-Worthy Pitchers

Rate this Entry
One of the great things about Twins Daily is that everyone can start up their own Blog. As we have pointed out, the best of the best can be promoted to the front page. Also, we can promoted series as well.

Over the last week to ten days, frequent Twins Daily contributor Thrylos has been working on a tremendous series called Profiles of the Top 22 Pitchers in the 2012 MLB Draft. It's a great series in which we can learn more about future, potential Minnesota Twins. A few of them will be considered for the #2 overall pick. But the Twins have six picks in the top 100, so it's possible that the Twins use some of their extra picks on these guys too. Here are the profiles so far:
  1. RJ Alvarez
  2. Mark Appel
  3. Jake Barrett
  4. Chris Beck
  5. Ryan Burr
  6. Zach Eflin
  7. Max Fried
  8. Kevin Gausman
  9. Lucas Giolito
  10. Andrew Heaney
  11. Brian Johnson

Based on the series title, I would say that Thrylos of half-way through his series. Be sure to frequent the Twins Daily Blog page to see the rest of the profiles as they are posted.

For those interested, bkucko, also has a near-daily blog entry that gives the player and pitcher of the day. Within it, he also shares a document that shows this information for the Twins and their affiliates for the full season.
