What do the Twins know about Schick that the scouting sites don't?
I see his highest ranking is 498 from Baseball America.

Decent enough stats in the Pac-12 and Cape Cod. Plus, what's not to like about a plus curveball? And you know the Twins love their 6'7 tall pitchers.

Apparently there is actually a 13th grade in Canada.

I hope Cody gets picked in the 11th round and gets twenty thousand!

 

OK, I seriously don't get this.Cody didn't sign with us b/c we came in and offered him less after his physical.It's well within his right to bet on himself, and I don't understand why we should wish that on him.

 

Besides, given his performance his senior year, it was a good thing he didn't sign as we'd likely be calling him a bust right now.

He went in the 6th Rd to Texas, where he's gonna get a fraction of what the Twins had offered even with their 2nd round discount offer due to medical reports.

If the start to a player's career is delayed by military service, is his Rule V eligibility delayed, also?

Well let's see: 12 x 60% = 7.2. Or does that only work for the speed limit up there?

No doubt Jax, from Air Force, needs to take the mound to Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone" as his walkout song.

 

Since that is Navy, probably not.

Happy to see the Twins going hard for hitters and going young. Should help set them up for a second wave. Low minors has been short on good hitters the past few years as they focused on pitching. Hard to say if these guys turn out but they did seem to get a little of everything. 5 tool guy, power guy, speed, the best prep catcher etc.

Man rounds 6-10 were rough, BA had all of them ranked in the 400s or not at all?! I know it's kinda a crap shoot at that point but it seems like we were just trying to be the smartest guy in the room. I did like the video of Carrier though

In the lower minors most of the prospects are in the pitching.  For example, with the exception of Nick Gordon, Ft Myers does not have any hitting prospects on the roster.
