Prospect Max Kepler heading to Cedar Rapids
Minnesota Twins outfield prospect Max Kepler tweeted today that he is finally leaving the extended spring training and heading to join the Cedar Rapids Kernals.
The 20-year-old German-born Kepler had a fantastic season at Elizabethton as a 19-year-old last year, hitting .297/.387/.539 with 10 home runs in addition to 16 doubles and a manageable 27-to-33 walks-to-strikeouts ratio. He was also successful in swiping seven bases in seven attempts.
Kepler was in Ft Myers nursing an elbow injury back to health.
