Kiriloff, Rooker, Larnach, Raley, and perhaps even Rolls Royce Lewis could all potentially debut next season for the Twins or another team. Cave and Wade deserve to be in the conversation as well. We pretty much know what we have in Buck, Rosie, and Kep who set a high bar.

Some of the above starters, back ups, and prospects will almost certainly be traded, waived, or non tendered.



Additionally, Jaylin Davis was already traded. I wonder where he'd slot in? A useful thought in considering potential return on trade capital.

I'd love to see how we rank these guys based purely on hitting ability at the MLB level.

I'd rank them today:

1) Larnach
2) Cave
3) AK
4) Davis
5) Rooker
6) Raley
7) Lewis
8) Wade

I have very little confidence in my ranking. General feeling from stats, publications, and limited video.

I'd love to know how others feel these bats stack up to both each other and national hype.

Nice idea, I think you could split that list into hitting for average and hitting for power. Kiriloff would probably top the former and Larnach/Rooker would top the latter.
