I have found myself really going through the last years draft and have become very impressed with the strategy and appreciate it more that I did when the draft occurred.
We have a had a few months to acquaint ourselves with some of the players and see some performances.This is a developmental draft by far, and the performance of Cavaco is going to determine a lot how good of a draft 2019 was.Even still I really think the Twins are on to something with their draft style, get a lot of hitters in the first 6-7 rounds, a pitcher or two sprinkled in, and then draft pitchers in the rest of the early to mid rounds, that 1st have good body types and at least 1 good pitch and the rest can be trained or learned.Also they are willing to draft injured players.
For example, in a redraft Cody Laweryson would likely be drafted in the first 5 rounds now.He really is well put together and has extremely good stuff at the lower levels, but his stuff looks very projectable to me.If both Canterino and Laweryson pan out, along with a reliever like Dylan Thomas, this draft on the pitching side looks very good, and that doesn't include all the other pitchers drafted that really have a chance at succeeding.
Regarding the bats the upside is very very good.
Cavaco and Holland both have very high ceilings, whether the bat tools get there is questionable.
Wallner is very projectable and appears to be at worst a solid mlb bad.
Steer, Gray, Prato and Julien all look like they have the potential to be middle infielders or 3rd baseman.
It would not surprise me at all if 6 of the players drafted make the big leagues with the possibility of a couple players if they hit being truly elite.
Its going to take a few more years, but with some time removed and getting ready for spring training I am anticipating to see how some of the players perform this year.
