Minnesota Twinsights: Max Kepler holding his own in the Arizona Fall League » Twins Now

Several quotes from AFL/NB manager Jeff Smith regarding Max Kepler and how well he's doing in the AFL, his elbow, and how well he fits in.

Good to see. A lot went right for the Twins minor leagues this year but he was one of the few bad seasons. Hopefully, he has a nice bounceback next year.

Kepler's season wasn't even that bad considering how little experience he had before signing with the Twins. He was considered a longer project than most. The other really encouraging thing about his season is that his BB and K rates are really good while he showed some power. His statline looks bad due to a .254 BAPIP. Adjust that up to .300 and he would have had an awesome statline.

Seth, where you do think Kepler will begin the year?
