MLB Draft Insider Top 14 in' 14 Minnesota Twins
Christopher Crawford, one of the two writers who helps Keith Law around draft season, released his top 14 Twins prospect list last night. He does great work. The list is very interesting with a surprise pick at #3. Also, some of his grades seem a bit conservative but it is worth the read. Here is his intro to the list:
"Well, when your system starts out with arguably the two best offensive prospects in baseball, you’re off to a pretty good start. The Twins have drafted extremely well the past few years, and have used their limited big-league assets to help build the quantity of the system, as well. As good as Buxton and Sano are, Minnesota’s pitching is the highlight of the system, with a trio of hard throwing right-handers that project to be No. 2 starters or better. There are several names here that would be top ten — maybe even top five — prospects in other systems that didn’t make this list, which speaks to the depth they’ve accumulated over the past few years. If this isn’t the best system in baseball, I’m not sure what is."
