Educate Yourself on Twins' Minor League Prospects

Spring training is just around the corner and it's time to think about Twins baseball and the 2010 season. Although there are seemingly few jobs open this year on the current roster, injuries and trades happen and the Twins often dig into the minor leagues to fill spots on the Major League roster.

To be prepared for these moves, I strongly suggest you pick up a copy of the Minnesota Twins 2010 Prospect Handbook. Compiled by Seth Stohs, linked here often, especially when talking about Twins' minor league prospects, the handbook is jam-packed with information about the players populating the Twins' minor league affiliates. The 2010 version has over 120 pages of solid information, including some of the following (thanks for providing highlights, Seth):
  • Foreword by Kelly Thesier
  • Over 150 Twins minor league profiles
  • In-depth statistics and splits
  • Scouting reports from several people in, around, and outside the Twins' organization
  • Top 5 Prospects from the Twins DSL Team
  • Twins as Players in the International Markets
  • Twins in the AFL
  • Interview with Jeff Manship: Big Leaguer
  • Profile of Danny Valencia: On the Cusp
  • 2009 Draft and Derek McCallum Q&A
  • SethSpeaks Top 30 Twins Prospect lists, 2006-2010
  • Top 10 Twins prospect lists from several minor league experts and some of your favorite Twins bloggers
Seth provides a ton of great content to fans of Twins Territory throughout the season. Do yourselves a favor and buy this book - like I did - and get prepared for the upcoming season.
