    Good idea  , would be nice to get  SWR exposure in the bjgs  and added to the 40 man roster sooner than in the off season  to protect from rule 5 draft , .....

    I like this idea. Give him a start. It's not doing anything drastic to his service time since he likely won't be in the rotation to start 2023 anyways. Let him get the feel and experience of a big league game and be that much more motivated to attack the offseason and come into spring training ready to steal someone's job. I don't see what it could hurt to let him finish the Saints season and then make a start against Chicago to end the season. 
    Overall it's time to turn things over to Varland, Ronny, Ober, Winder, Ryan, Gray this season. Bundy has fulfilled his role, but I don't need to see him start anymore games. Archer's season should be over. Be careful with Gray coming back from his hammy cuz there's no reason not to be, but the rest of the starts should go to young guys who will be part of the future. Don't care about Ws or stats. Get them some experience.

    I'm fine with the idea and it makes a ton of sense, as long as Ober, and Winder, and Varland don't lose starts/innings as they need the innings and expose as well. But with Archer and Gray and Mahle all out, I don't think it's going to be a problem.

    Another interesting question, Ted.  
    Biggest reason to not add him is if he didn't have to be added to the 40-man until 2023.  Checked and see that he was a 2018 draft pick, so needs to be added this November.  That eliminates that excuse, so what the heck Twins...bring him up for that one game.  Heck, maybe he and Varland could get back-to-back starts and we would get a good glimpse of the Twins future, perhaps near future.

    Will be interesting next year, Nick.  Especially, if Lewis returns playing like he did prior to his injury.
    Assuming Correa is gone, of the two who is the shortstop?  And putting the other at third base isn't an easy answer.  If you do, what do you do with Miranda?  
    Appreciate this article, especially after the way this season is ending.  Will also agree with those above that Rodriguez could be special.  Any word on how bad his knee injury was and how his recovery is coming?

    Royce Lewis also showed why he was the #1 overall pick. Can't wait to have him back

    They're very young but 3 international OF signings had pretty good years in the DSL as well. Acuna, Mercedes, and Jose Rodriguez

    I think Jhoan Duran, Jose Miranda and Royce Lewis are the brightest spots for the farm system in general. Those guys have seriously made an impact, even if Lewis didn't have enough time for things to stabilize, he was incredibly exciting when nobody expected him to contribute so quickly.

    In the minors specifically, I agree about Wallner. He's made a really fantastic change to his game by learning to be more patient and taking walks. It elevates his game dramatically and showcases the fact his ability to read pitches is far greater than I expected. He's a legitimate top prospect for the Twins at this point.

    Woods-Richardson... well, I don't know. The reports on his velocity and mechanics being all over the place are flat out bad. Maybe he throws 89 or maybe he throws 92. It seems like he's got some great stuff, but only when his mechanics are in order and he's repeating his delivery like he should. I'd like to see him against MLB batters.

    It's been great to watch Brooks Lee hit well in the minors, just like advertised, and unlike some other prospects who just didn't seem to be able to make the transition in tact. 

    Emmanuel Rodriguez has really turned some heads and rocketed up the prospect chart as a result, but Julien has also had a really great year. That's been a bright spot as well.

    POSITIVE PROSPECT DEVELOPMENT  IS THE KEY WORD ...
    These prospects are all rated in our top 30 list  ...
    It's great that they are doing well and getting to the next level  , step by step they have to continue to earn there way up towards the MLB level and earn there keep at staying  , its difficult to preform at the major league level ...
    I like what they have accomplished and continue to be impressive and will really help the MLB  CLUB ...
    I'd really like our homegrown  minnesotans , varland and Wallner to lead the twins to a world series like hrbek did  , sorry mauer you were not a leader ...

    Lee and SWR are the cream of those guys, but if Varland is a starter or reliver, is a great story 
    That said, Wallner seems to adjust at every level, and has a pedigree. His ascent is very timely given the health of their projected OF.

    I think the general feeling on Lee is he won't have the range to be a big league SS. Now scouts have certainly thought that about others and been proven wrong, but I think Lewis looked like he could handle the position pretty well when he filled in for Correa. I wouldn't be mad with either configuration as both are likely above average 3B, but I'd lean Lewis at SS for the added range he'll likely provide. 
    Mostly I just hope both reach pretty close to their ceilings and things will take care of themselves from there.

    Not only that, he was a 5th year senior sign who was drafted in round 10 mainly because he would have a small bonus and the money could be assigned to other draft picks. He's hit the snot out of the ball at the professional level.

    I agree with the first part—why change the draft? But no I think some teams are tanking or not trying that hard. I don’t necessarily have a problem with that. But take a look at the number of teams hovering around 500. There are only a few of them.

    It will add an interesting twist to the draft. Thanks for sim link, I tried it, on 12th try Twins popped up 3rd, otherwise were in the teens.
    Whether its 3 or 16, there will be talent available, can they choose wisely and develop said talent is the question. It sure looks like they hit on Lee. Please dont trade him for RP next year.......
