I apologize for my ignorance, but can someone give me a timetable of the Big 3 pitchers in Eliz. Just curious to see when they could be up.

Best Case Scenario 4 years. 2014 in A, 2015 in A+/AA, 2016 in AA/AAA, 2017 in MLB.

IF all of them make it, and at this point, the odds are more likely that none of them do than all of them do, it will be in the 2017 to 2019 range.

There have been other "Big Three" guys in the GCL and even ET, so have to have caution, but these three are exciting.

Hmm, sounds like Twins fans will have quit a wait before the pitching staff gets turned-around--without free agents.

Yes, but here's the important question... when could they be "up" to Cedar Rapids?! :)

I was never high on Roosevelt. He could knock them out of the yard but you could never get him to walk. It really hurt his OBP.

I'd take that over Stalin's character issues. Could you imagine him being signed in this kind of media environment. Churchill was fine, but he never quite fit into the locker room. At least we never had to hear of a schism in the locker room until after his career.

Best to add more to this group and include some GCL guys to increase the chances 1 or 2 of them pan out
As Seth Says, its a long way to go from E-town the bigs:

To hedge our bets I suggest:
Kohl Stewart
Lewis Thorpe
Stephen Gonsalves
Austin Malinowski - The grandfather of the group at age 20
