Several Twins minor league players were selected in today's Dominican Winter League draft... 

 

 

I believe to be eligible to be drafted a player has to have played at least with a full-season squad during the season... So, most of these guys played in Cedar Rapids, and a couple in Ft. Myers.

Six teams in the league. So, sixty players selected in the first ten rounds. Average MLB team should have two. We had four. That many Twins prospects selected suggests we have a strong Dominican program going, right?

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

The Twins are again not participating in the Instructional League (2nd year). They are just continuing with camps with more purposeful instruction.

Side Bar Question:
A lot has Been made about minor league pay and how it should be increased. How do these instructional camps and leagues play into that? Are they at least paid while participating?

I don't know that for sure... my assumption would be that it is like spring training and they don't get paid for spring training. I'd certainly think that their flights and other expenses would be paid... I'd hope!
