Lewis was the number one overall pick... in the entire draft. If he's 4th in our system, it was an awful pick.

I factor into how close to the majors the player is.Lewis is at least a couple of years away.Talent also plays a part, but I would expect the first three will be with the Twins in 2018 or very early in 2019

There were a few 18-20 year olds in the rookie ball leagues throwing 92-93. There was something somewhere about Falvey and training methods that could add a couple mph to their pitches.That could make for some interesting prospects in a couple of years.

The bad part about this discussion is that given there are not any OMG prospects on the list there are not 5-10 names son the list.As the new regime brings in new ideas we shall see if the prospects start improving.

 

That guy is Graterol.

 

Well, and Lewis. Lewis is considered by many a guy who could play in the majors in 2019, which is remarkable for a high school talent. The biggest questions I got from other teams' guys who saw him in GCL or Cedar Rapids was whether he stuck at short simply because the nuance of the pro game at the position may not have time to develop before his bat is ready for the majors.

There were also a few that touched triple digits...

Like most number 1's, I don't think it matters much who is. Could be 6-8 different players. I see a lot of talented players rising to the major league roster over the next 2-4 years and looking forward to their impact on a 85 win team.
