The number might be back down to 7 pretty soon.
According to a Tweet by Kevin Goldstein, The Twins have signed Australian SS Logan Wade, giving them eight Aussies in the organization.

I wouldn't give up on Kepler quite yet. He's what, 19 years old? A bit too early to write him off.
Cool. Because there's a strong track record of all these Australian, German (Kepler), and Dutch prospects (Loek van Mil, not with team anymore) becoming huge contributors in the bigs

Kepler just turned 19 in Feb. He was still in high school when they signed him three years ago. Give the kid some time, geeze.
are you implying that a prospect hasn't proven his worth by 19? If you're not hitting 30 HR in AAA before 20 you're worthless.

I was impressed by him at Spring Training more than anybody else.
Spring Training Regular since 2011.
