One of the most stable franchises in baseball is going through a bit of a rebuilding period, but the organization is certainly on the right track to be competitive again very soon. With one of the strongest farm systems, that includes both bats and arms, the Twins are in a very good position moving forward. Here are five prospects who have made a good impression in Spring Training.
The top prospect in the Twins' system, Byron Buxton is true five-tool player. While he hasn't had a great spring, he still deserves to be on this list. In 19 plate appearances, Buxton is hitting .158/.158/.368 with a home run and a double.
In 26 plate appearances, Danny Santana has been raking in Spring Training. He is hitting .391/.462/.696 with a 1.157 OPS. He has walked three times while striking out just twice. Santana has also showed off impressive skills on the bases, stealing three bases without being caught.
One of the Twins' top infield prospects, Jorge Polanco has hit relatively well in Spring Training. In 13 plate appearances, Polanco is hitting .273/.385/.364 with two walks and no strikeouts.
Battling with Alex Presley for the Opening Day center field job, Aaron Hicks is doing very well in Spring Training so far. In 24 plate appearances, Hicks is hitting .292/.292/.500 with a home run and two doubles.
The Twins' top pitching prospect, Alex Meyer hasn't gotten many chances to prove himself this spring. In just two innings, Meyer has struck out one batter and allowed four hits. He has a 4.50 ERA after allowing one earned run in his two innings.
