    Yeah, undrafted, exhausted his college eligibility, dad's a pro scout for the Twins. All of those things.

    Is there any kid or nephew or relative of people in the organization, who play baseball that they haven't signed?

    Tom Brunansky's son, Jason, just exhausted his eligibility at Kansas, and he's not in the Twins organization (yet).
