Within the next few days, we will be sharing a bunch of information on the 2016 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook. This will be the 8th annual Twins Prospect Handbook that I have been part of, and Cody Christie and Jeremy Nygaard, and – I might be biased – this feels like the best one yet.
As I write about the various prospects, I always learn a few really interesting tidbits on some Twins minor leaguers. One of the more interesting stories or backgrounds in the 2016 book is that of Australian Aaron Whitefield. Recently, he answered some questions to help us get to know a little more about him and his story.
Aaron Whitefield signed with the Twins in 2015. He had visa issues so by the time he got to the States, he played in just seven games for the GCL Twins. He only began playing baseball one year ago. Previously, he had been a softball player, competing for the Australian national team in some international competitions.
