Baseball America: Twins farm system ranks 20th in baseball
According to Baseball America's rankings, the Twins come in at number 20 on their list of best farm systems.
Texas's farm system paced the field but the Royals (2) were not far behind. Kansas City was the only AL Central team to finish ahead of the Twins, so in terms of direct competition, Minnesota might be positioned well for the future. Detroit's (23) system ranked slightly lower but pulling up the rear of the entire list are the division rival Indians (29) and White Sox (30).

I wonder how much it will change after this year's draft and after Gibson shows he is recovered from surgery.

The other thing that will be in play for next seasons' rankings (other the aforementioned) are potential trades that can bring back high rated prospects... Too early to look at the 2013 system before like February of 2013.-----
