2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Silva great up in Venezuela. He represented his country in some international competitions. He signed with the Twins in July of 2012. He is a very advanced defensively. He receives the ball well and has a very strong arm. He has thrown out no less than 37% of base runners at any stop. Offensively, it has been more of a struggle. In 2013 in the DSL, he hit .223/.289/.250 (.539). He moved up to the GCL in 2014 and hit just .270/.294/.342 (.636). He doesn’t like to walk. He doesn’t have a lot of power, but he can get himself in trouble by swinging too big.
