2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: A Sydney, Australia, native, Van Steensel originally signed with the Phillies and spent one season with their GCL team. He signed with the Twins before the 2011 season and spent that season in Elizabethton before being let go. He spent 2012 in The Netherlands playing. He has spent his summers (in Australia), pitching for Sydney in the ABL. Before the 2014 season, he re-signed with the Twins and had a strong season in Cedar Rapids and Ft. Myers, 1.39 ERA in 58.1 innings. Van Steensel has a high leg kick and throws hard. He’s got the goggles on and looks intimidating. He sits in the low-90s but can touch 95 with the fastball. His slider is also a strikeout pitch.
