Twins Spotlight: Episode 24 (Royce Lewis)
Posted 17 February 2021 - 11:46 PM
The discussion was live on the Twins Daily social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube pages.Royce Lewis was the Twins top pick in the 2017, the #1 overall pick out of JSerra Catholic High School.
He had a strong pro debut that year in the GCL and at Cedar Rapids. He began the 2018 season on an immensely-talented Kernels team. Shortly after the All Star break, he was promoted to Ft. Myers where he helped the MIracle to a Florida State League title.
In 2019, he split the season between Ft. Myers and Double-A Pensacola. Following the season, he went to the Arizona Fall League where he was named the league's MVP.
Lewis has been the Twins Daily Twins Top Prospect the past three years, and you'll find out next week if he retains that title.
This week, he was named as a Non-Roster invite to Twins spring training for the third time.
He has been a frequent guest on podcasts and was a guest in December on a Twins Spotlight discussing the impact Torii Hunter has had on him and our other guests that night (Jacque Jones, Niko Guardado). Check that out here.

Thanks so much, Seth.
What a fantastic interview with an exciting and interesting young man. He will be a great addition to the Twins family when he arrives, hopefully, later this summer.
