AFL rosters for 2017 were announced this afternoon. The Twins prospects will play for Surprise. Unfortunately, only four players from the Twins organization were announced:
RHP Tom Hackimer
LHP Tyler Jay
OF LaMonte Wade
IF Chris Paul
Paul missed 2+ months with a broken hamate. Jay missed most of the season.
Now, teams will typically have 6-7 players in the AFL. My assumption is the Twins will add 2-3 more players. Players have to be healthy to play there. A guy like Kohl Stewart could be added if he is cleared before then. Also, I would guess innings limits could factor in. For instance, Zack Littell could be a candidate, but he's already around 150 innings. The Lookouts are going to the playoffs, but if they got done with the playoffs and he was at 158 (to make up a number) and they hoped to get him to 175, this would be a great way to do that. But if the Lookouts get all the way through the playoffs, and he's made three more starts and is already at 165 innings, they likely would send someone else, maybe a Cody Stashak who has missed time this year on the DL. Will be interesting to follow.
