Okay ... here is the (very) long list of remaining prospects. They are organized according to where they were in the organization at the end of the season last year (thanks, Seth!), and then alphabetized. I also included their positions, in case you want to draft according to position, in case you wanted to adopt an entire team! ;) As to where they will start this year still remains to be seen. Not surprising that the largest numbers are in the lower minors and are pitchers. In this round you can adopt as many as you want, whenever you want. No more one at a time, one per day ... as many as you want, first come, first served. Just post below (starting Monday, 9am CT) and I will confirm with a like and posting 'adopted by' following the prospect name on the list before; and, as before, don't fret if I don't get to this until later in the day. When you can, get your threads started. If you want to wait until your prospects have been assigned, that's understable so just get your threads going soon after that.

Seeing this long list of names reminds us all just how many prospects it takes to fill out the system and ultimately field a major league team. Many of these young men ... hard working for little pay ... ever fullfill their dreams. It's a long, tough road and many of these names won't even be recognizable to most. So let's show them a little love and give them their day!

Monday at 9am I'll open the thread and you can put in your claims! :)

If you see any on these lists that are no longer in the system, or I missed someone, or got a position wrong, let me know so I can adjust/correct accordingly. After the MLB draft, we'll have a round 3 for a new batch of prospects, once everyone has signed (or not).

You found the place. I was just going to respond to your PM. You did exactly right. You can read the thread below this one that gives you some suggestions on how to get started, or just read through a few of the other threads to see what they've done. Basically, just give us an idea of who your prospect is ... how/when he became a Twin, what pitches he has, and keep us updated as to his progress this summer.

You got them both. And I'll add Donny Breek to our list ... thanks fort he correction! I'm not sure where he'll be place in the org, so for now I'll list him with the GCL Twins.

 

Welcome aboard!

Will add further ... we didn't have him listed because he was signed in September, after the MiL seasons were ended, and our list was based on the 2017 season. :) Again, thanks!!

With the 6th pick...

(how did we get to 6 so fast? I think there was some draft tampering going on)

With the 6th pick of the 2nd round Goulik chooses to draft Austin Bizzle.

Kevin Lawless here,

This Just In, Goulik has a trade offer in with Ashburyjohn

Proposed trade: Austin Bizzle for John Curtiss, and a PTBNL or cash considerations contingent on Ashburyjohn drafting John Curtiss.

I'll take John Curtiss.

 

Counter-offer: your Fernando Romero for Curtiss. You can throw in Bizzle if you wish. :)

Can I take Willans Astudillo? Did not see him on here I am assuming because he was just signed last November. Not sure if he will go to AA or AAA.

Yes, you can have him ... and yes ... I was working with the 2017 rosters, so I didn't have him. Where I put him on my list won't matter, just so he's somewhere on the list ... but where he goes will matter for you prospect thread! :) Who knows when you'll know that ... maybe Seth has insight into that? Anyway ... he's yours! :)

 

Edit: It looks as if he's already assigned to the Red Wings, so I'll put him there.

Fernando Romero and Bizzle for Curtiss, PTBNL, and Next years first round pick

:ph34r:

OK, in the spirit of the Twins' impenetrable Rule-5 drafts the past couple of off-seasons: Curtiss plus cash considerations plus a PTBNL, for Bizzle plus equal cash considerations plus the same PTBNL. Final offer. :)

That sounds really, really equal, but there's one more thing you need to consider: the "pending physical." When Ben Noble and I did our trade, he had to intentionally fail his physical because he knew I had no shot to pass mine :)
