    Baseball America Hot Sheet - May 31st

    Think this is the first list of the year without Buxton or Sano on it, but another Top Twins hitting prospect made it:

    No. 12 Eddie Rosario, 2b, Twins
    Team:
    high Class A Fort Myers (Florida State)
    Age: 21
    Why He’s Here: .474/.500/.789 (9-for-19), 1 HR, 3 2B, 5 RBIs, 5 R, 2 BB, 2 SO, 0-for-1 SB
    The Scoop: In his first season spent exclusively at second base, Rosario has shown a wide array of skills that could make him a future above-average regular at the position. He’s hitting .328/.367/.508 through 177 at-bats, ranking third in the Florida State League batting race and third with 34 runs scored. Rosario and Miguel Sano are the driving forces behind the Miracle’s FSL-leading .353 on-base and .444 slugging percentages.

    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.

    Also some Twins questions in the related chat with Ben Badler:


    • Amanda (Minneapolis): What % chance do you think Sano has of sticking at 3B? How about Eddie Rosario at 2B? Thanks!

    Ben Badler: Sano has the tools to stay there, he's just such an enormous human being already that you have to wonder how much range he's going to have if he puts on more weight. What's crazy is he's a pretty good athlete for someone his size, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt to be able to stay at the position.


    • Ian (MPLS): Buxton or Sano?

    Ben Badler: Buxton. He might be the best prospect in baseball by the end of the year.


    • Amanda (Minneapolis): Can J.O. Berrios be a successful MLB starter, or does his height doom him to the bullpen?

    Ben Badler: I've never subscribed to the idea that a pitcher isn't tall enough to be a starter. There's no reason his height should limit him to a relief role.
