Low Minors - Who should I track?
Posted 17 July 2013 - 09:48 PM
I like to look at the box scores from every level each night and I am familiar enough with the Twins top 20-30 prospects that I know who to look for at Rochester, New Britain, Fort Myers, and Cedar Rapids (although maybe not as much now with the recent promotions from CR), but when it comes to the low minors I could use a little help.
Other than Minier, Stewart, and Eades I am fairly clueless.
Could someone give me, say, the top 5 hitters and top 3 pitchers to keep an eye out for at each level?
Thanks in Advance

Pitchers: there are lots but specifically there are five other than Eades and Stewart. Randy Rosario, Yorman Landa, Lewis Thorpe, Stephen Gonsvalves, and Felix Jorge. The young pitching is solid in the low minors!

Zach Larson who is almost 20 is having a really good year for the GCL Twins. He is young and showed adjustments from last year. Currently he is sporting a 1.02 OPS.
Hopefully he gets sent up to E-town in the near Future.
Jorge Fernandez – 19 Years old, from Puerto Rico. 7th Round Draft Pick in 2012. 6' 3" 188 lbs. The main reason I am following him closely is because of the success the Twins have had with Puerto Rican prospects. Also at the GCL.
As mentioned above, pitchers are the strength. Hopefully a few of these guys turn out:
Kuo Hua Lo– 20
Sam Gibbons – 19
Lewis Thorpe – 17
Yorman Landa – 19
Austin Malinowski – 20
Randy Rosario –19
Felix Jorge - 19
Kohl Stewart - 18
Stephen Gonsalves - 19 (just turned)

Two guys that I know nothing about that have been good so far are Alexis Tapia, a RHP, and Frank Encarnacion, an outfielder. Both are 17 years old.
