Haven’t really seen anything about this anywhere else, but it was posted like 6 days ago.

Am I missing something?

Well if he pans out it'll be the best thing that Park Byeong-ho has done for the team!

If it is true that is super exciting news.Finding 5 tool players is very hard to do, especially ones with a good hit tool.Sure wouldn't mind adding more high schoolers to the farm as it makes for a deeper farm system IMO.

 

If the Twins hadn't done as well as they have internationally their 1st round pick drafting could have really hurt them.But when you can find a Sano, Ploanco, Kepler, Arraez etc.That really helps.Hopefully this kid can continue that trend.

One of the only “5-tool” players you’ll ever see playing 3rd base in high school . A project...worth $800k, I would think.

Yeah, I think the "5-tool" description might be a tad hyperbolic, we'll see.
