    Article: Twins Minor League Report (6/17): Familiar Faces Shine

    Scouting Report: Tools - Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
    Spring Training Regular since 2011.

    Gilmartin promoted. That should open a spot for Berrios.

    Definitely. Though Berrios might not be first in the promotion pecking order.

    But the Twins always talk about consistency with pitchers when determining promotions, so if Berrios hasn't been consistent (-ly awesome), I don't know how they define it!

    Not only impressive consistency, he also seems to have matured quite a bit since 2013. I hope the Twins go against their normal SOP of promoting by seniority-first and give Berrios his well-deserved reward. Fernandez went straight to the Marlins out of ST after finishing the previous year at age 20 in High-A ball.

    Consider these stats, in the same level, at the same age:

    Fernandez: ERA- 1.96 FIP- 2.34 K/9- 9.65 BB/9- 2.78
    Berrios: ERA- 2.09 FIP- 2.34 K/9- 10.47 BB/9- 2.44

    Should Berrios be able to continue this current success in New Britain this year, he would have an excellent chance at being a first or second call-up (after Meyer?) next year. Exciting times, especially if the Twins choose to be aggressive.
