I never used to follow the minor leagues years ago. Have there been other players who have come through the Twins system with similar talent? I guess I'm wondering, if there were, were they sucessful in the majors?

Let's just say that Sano winds up being a Top 10 prospect in all of baseball. Twins players that have been Top 10 in all of baseball (in the last decade) include Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Michael Cuddyer and Francisco Liriano.

Hard to argue with this, but I think that Chris Colabello, other than the fact that he is playing 2 levels below his age, should probably be included. Cooled off a bit lately, but his OPS is still higher than both Santana and Hicks

As long as 3+ of this list every month is a top prospect, I'm happy....

Colabello was very much considered due to OPS, but also due to some really big hits during the month, but that .236 BA is hard to ignore. I'm a big OPS guy who understands that BA is the least meaningful of the triple slash, but .236...
