    The 2020 draft was different than it had been before. There were just five rounds due to the COVID pandemic. When the Twins called their fifth-round pick, they went with a high school power-hitting outfielder from Hawaii named Kala'i Rosario. 

    Legendary Twins scout John Leavitt covers southern California, but he also gets the opportunity to cover Hawaii. He saw Rosario before the season was shut down in 2020, but he had seen him other times previously. Rosario had some of the highest Exit Velocity readings at Perfect Game events, and he beat Red Sox pick Blaze Jordan in the home run derby at the Area Code games as well. He reportedly hit one ball 440 feet. 

    In 2021, he played in 51 games for the FCL Twins. He hit .277/.341/.452 (.793) with 10 doubles, four triples, five homers and 40 RBI. He was named the Twins Daily Short-Season Minor League Hitter of the Year, and was just named to the Florida Complex League All-Star team.
