Twins Minor League YTD Stats

When your favorite team/ player is playing bad, we often rely on the Small Sample Size argument (see Aaron Hicks.) However, when your player is doing well, the Small Sample Size just annoys the crap out of you.

In first two weeks of the young minor league year, we have seen a LOT of really nice play out of the Twins Minor League system. - Especially in the lower levels. Its too early to declare that the Twins have 10 superstars playing for them right now, but it sure seems that way.

AAA

Rochester is 2-8, 7 Games Behind. They have lost 4 in a row.

Notable performers are Oswaldo Arcia - who just got called up - Chris Colabello who has 4 HR and a 1.3 OPS - WOW. Clete Thomas is playing well early. Kyle Gibson has started 2 games and has struck out 10 in 9.1 innings. However, opponets are hitting .308 against him. Hes got to cut that down. Tyler Robertson is pitching well in the bullpen. Andrew Albers is pitching really really well in his first 2 outings. Keep your eye on him! Like Gibson he has 10 SO in 9.2 innings, but opponents are hitting .194 off him. So he is looking pretty good. Joe Benson is really struggling. I hope something clicks for him soon.

Outside of those guys, its been a real stink-fest at AAA. I really think this team is poorly constructed with many bad players in many positions where the MLB team is weakest. - Pitching and MI.

AA

New Britain is 5-5, 2 games out.

New Britian has had a little more offensive output than I anticipated and their pitching is doing worse than I thought. Daniel Ortiz and Josmil Pinto are the stars of this team. Pinto has 4 HR and 1.09 OPS! Ortiz has a 1.1 OPS and is doing it all. Great start from these two. Alex Myer is doing decent. 14 So in 10 innings. But opponents are hitting .293 against him. This needs to come down for him to be that ace we are all looking for. Trevor May is doing well with 11 SO in 9 innings, but 6 walks is a bit concerning. Michael Tonkin is pitching bad. I am surprised by this. This team needs their bullpen to get going as the offense is not star laden. Danny Santana has been up and down early and has 4 errors.

One player who I think I should highlight is Antoan Richardson. This 30 Year old journey man has a .432 OBP with 7 walks and 5 steals, most days batting lead off. He is really showing the value of a lead off hitter who is getting on base, and stealing when he can. He is putting pressure on the defense and is surely part of the reason Pinto and Ortiz are getting pitches to hit.

High A

Fort Myers have not lost a game all year. 10 wins in 10 games. This classifies as a pretty great start. There are only 3 players with an OPS below .700!

Sano & Rosario are the stars of the team. But players like Matt Koch & Angel Morales are really doing well. If Morales can get on track...this would be huge for the team. Adam Peterson is having a hot start as well. He is hitting .314 and is pulling his weight in the star studded team.

Zach Jones, Ryan O'Rourke, Chad Rogers have been amazing in the bullpen. DJ Baxendale as been the team's best starter. Madison Boer is struggling. His first start was terrible, his second start was better. But I don't think he will be a starter much longer.

Low A Cedar Rapids

7 - 2 tied for first!

Byron Buxton, Dalton Hicks & Jorge Polonco have been getting all the headlines. But really outside of these 3, the offense has been up and down. The true stars of this team has been the pitching staff.

2012 picks Tyler Duffy, Mason Melotakis & Taylor Rogers, have been doing well as starters. Hudson Boyd has 9 SO in 9.2 innings and opponents are hitting .182 against him. Tyler Jones has been great in the Bull Pen.

The whole pitching staff is doing great and its great to see the experiment of the '12 draf paying dividends so soon.
