On Thursday night, the Cedar Rapids Kernels played their third and final game of a series against Lake County, Cleveland’s Low-A Midwest League affiliate. Before that game, I had the opportunity to interview a couple of their players who have ties to Minnesota Twins prospects. Tonight, let’s get to know a little bit about left-handed pitcher Juan Hillman.
Juan Hillman was Cleveland’s second-round draft pick in 2015. The southpaw was a graduate of Olympia High School in Orlando. As you recall, the Twins first-round draft choice in 2014 was a shortstop out of Olympia, Nick Gordon.
