2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/13/12

Rate this Entry
Here are my updated Class of 2012 Power Rankings. In short, a few things that jump out:

  • Honestly, any one of the top three (Baxendale, Berrios, Jones) could be ranked #1. I have Baxendale there because of his unbelievable K/BB and K/9 ratios.
  • 11th round pick Taylor Rogers out of the University of Kentucky has now thrown a total of 140 innings this year (89.1 in college, 50.2 as a Twin). His numbers for Beloit, although not terrible, are significantly worse than the numbers he was putting up at Elizabethton. He has 10 total appearances with the Twins, all starts. I wouldn't be surprised to see him come out of the bullpen soon if not shut down completely.
  • Adam Walker continues to impress with the stick. He has four HR's in his last ten games which, according to Seth's Minor League leaderboard, places him in the top 10 among all Twins minor leaguers in just 45 games.

    This is very interesting and looks like it took a lot of work.

    I am glad to see that your top 6 are pitchers. The Twins could use some good ones.
