They just switched Steer to SS. I guess they want to give Cavaco some competition.

I give up, man.The guy is not even in the top 200.Not sure why he had to be picked there.Well I am usually wrong about these picks so will just hope it is a good pick.

It's starting to feel like the Twins are going to spread their bonus pool around pretty evenly, much like they did last year. Jeffers, Keirsey, Sands and Mack all got between $800k-$500k. Grace, Garry, Helman and Winder all got between $350k-$198k.

 

Different circumstances this time around, still lots of draft to go, but that's just my guess at this time.

BTW, easiest way to find Fangraph's player by player thoughts for MN:

 

https://www.fangraph...m=min&pagenum=0

 

Note, as of now, they have not added their third rounder.....

 

actually, I don't think their 3rd round pick is even in their list, now that I look for SS and 3B.....hmmmm.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

I was hoping for Graeme Stinson, but I like Steer. Added some power this year. OPS'd .974 in the Pac-12 this season and hit over .300 with 5 HR's in the wood bat Cape Cod league last summer.

Steer - Well, the Twins just added 600K to fish for prospects in the next few rounds.

 

Oops - thought he was a senior. NM

As far as I can tell, Fangraphs rated 443 players, and Steer wasn't on the list. But, it's possible I missed him somehow....

They have him listed as a 2B, but do not have a scouting report available on him.

Was thinking similarly - if they're going outside the rankings around this range of picks, I would have liked to see it be for pitching. Then again I know so little about these players so what do I really know...

Stinson still there (as are Ealy and Hearn) .... I like how these rounds fly by

I'm no expert, but from afar, I couldn't be more underwhelmed with the Twins draft so far.

 

3rd rounder with no power who won't stay at SS?

 

A reach at 13?

 

WTF??

Sure would be nice to know what the Twins see in some of these picks.So far it looks more like they are looking for good defenders and not as worried about hit tools.Sure hope they are getting things right in their evals.

I'm really wondering what the strategy is at this point. None of these guys are ranked highly at all and where is the pitching going to come from in the low minors if you don't draft pitchers?
