I haven't seen any notice on Twins Daily yet, so thought I'd leave this here.
Eric Longenhagen has posted his new Twins prospect list at FanGraphs. The lists aren't as exciting this year, as very little info is available about prospect progress in 2020. However, there are a few notable changes to the FG list and I recommend reading those players' blurbs:
- Alex Kirilloff moves to #1 on the list. He now has a 60 Future Value, which puts him in the potential star category. Lewis holds his grade and Larnach is bumped to 55 FV.
- Matt Canterino moves to #7 and will be at the back end of their "Top 100" (FanGraphs includes everyone with a 50 FV, so it ends up being about 125 players). Says he developed a new change-up in 2020 based on info the Twins shared from Instructionals.
- Josh Winder jumps to #13, citing increased velocity and again, a new change-up, which could cause his "value to explode".
- 2020 Draft Pick Aleck Soularie is placed at #16. Sounds very boom or bust. A fun writeup.
Longenhagen talks about the Twins draft strategy at the end of the article. I fully agree. The Twins need to draft more up-the-middle athletes.
