A team who saves money early could get a steal in Fedde.

With Fedde out that leaves Beede and two control pitchers. I know the Twins have scouted Nola extensively, but they need to stop. Not taking a 4-5 pitcher at #5 shouldn't need to be explained.
If the Twins are left without an obvious choice at #5 and go pitcher, I'd prefer HS arms Holmes and Toussaint. I don't think they have been scouted as much as Nola has though. They've also been checking out Sean Newcomb and Sean Reid-Foley. If the team thinks they know how to correct Newcomb's high BB rate, he'd be great, but I'm not sure the Twins have a potion for that.

After reading the Hoffman news, I was starting to hope for a Freeland/Hoffman first two picks for the Twins.
what are the chances Hoffman or Trea Turner fall to the Twins in the second?
There are 10-15 teams that have a 2nd pick before the Twins and are in a much better position to make that happen.
