BNS - Minnesota Twins: Top 10 Prospects For 2013


1) One of the most prominent international free agents signed out of the Dominican Republic in several years, 19-year-old Miguel Sano features power to all fields and projects to hit for average and power as he grows stronger and climbs the minors. A defensively sound third baseman, Sano was among the leaders in multiple offensive categories in 2011 in the Appalachian League and belted 28 home runs with 100 RBI last year in the low Single-A Midwest League.

2) The second overall pick of last summer’s draft out of high school, 19-year-old Byron Buxton is a potential five-tool center fielder who gained valuable experience between the Gulf Coast League and the Appalachian League after he signed. Buxton projects to hit for average and power while stealing bases and providing superb defense.

3) A Venezuela native, 21-year-old Oswaldo Arcia is prone to striking out, but he possesses raw power and is best suited as a corner outfielder. He batted .320 with 17 home runs, 98 RBI and a .928 OPS between advanced Single-A and Double-A last season. Chris Parmelee, Buxton, Arcia and Aaron Hicks (see below) could give the Twins an array of formidable homegrown outfield options by 2015.
