Baseball America has an interesting post today featuring the top 10 position players who have missed significant time this season due to injury. Unfortunately, the Twins are featured heavily on the list with Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano and Eddie Rosario all making appearances.

When listed off like that, it becomes blatantly clear just how unlucky the Twins have been this year when it comes to injuries to their farm system.

The silver lining is the Twins have enough quality minor league talent to get three names on the list...I guess?

If Rosario is included, I guess BA is lumping in suspension time as "due to injury."?

I wonder which pitchers make the list. I am glad that there are no twins on that list.

They admit that Rosario making the list is a bit of a cheat because he wasn't "injured". I thought it was interesting he made the list, since his time off was self inflicted.
