    After former Twins third baseman Corey Koskie left before the 2005 season, the Twins had trouble finding a suitable replacement for years. They trotted out such names as Tony Batista, Mike Lamb, Joe Crede, Matt Tolbert and Nick Punto to name a few. Then came the 2010 season when Twins prospect Danny Valencia finally broke into the big leagues.

    Valencia impressed during his time with the Twins (85 games played). He hit .311/.351/.448 with 7 homeruns and 40 RBI in 322 plate appearances. The Twins and their fans were confident they had finally found Coskie's replacement for years to come.
