John and I have discussed why some Twins hitters fall off the radar during their stints in A/AA and then rebound later in their MiLB career. Parmelee and Plouffe did that. Hicks looks like he's doing it. We wondered if the Twins put such an emphasis on going the other way, taking good ABs, and drilling fundamentals that it takes guys awhile to adjust and then when they "get it", they break out in the upper minors. I'm starting to think that is a real possibility, which is why I think an argument can be made for both Hicks and Arcia. Some guys "get it" more quickly than others and I'm not going to hold that against Aaron Hicks now that it looks like he's coming around.

While I on the other hand want Sano up here asap. It's a waste of a year or two of his MLB career to keep him down when he could be up.
I long for the day when Ryan will trade from his prospect strengths to fill in holes.Lighten up Francis....

My guess is Sano starts in Fort Myers, and assuming he starts well, will move up to New Britain when the weather gets warmer. My guess is then that in 2014 he will start the season in AAA and then prolly move up around July 1st.
Though he had good numbers at low A, it wasn't like he completely destroyed low A either. He struck out his fair share and had a period where his defense struggled.
I'd go with the same plan for Vargas

Jim Callis today (in Ask BA) was asked to do a top 10 and put Buxton at #9 overall.
I personally would put Sano ahead of Buxton...I imagine Sano was not far out of the top 10.Papers...business papers.
