Twinkie Town 2011 Top 50...Prospect #22!

New, 79 comments

With 77 of 253 votes (30%), Trevor Plouffe moves up one spot from last year as our Twenty-First ranked prospect. Anthony Slama was twenty votes back with B. J. Hermsen nine votes behind Slama.

Cesar Ciurcina didn't collect two percent of the votes and will be dropped from the next round. Added will be Nikko Goodrum and Dakota Watts. Goodrum, who was the Twins second round pick last year, is a tremendous athlete who struggled in his adjustment to professional baseball, hitting .161/.219/.195 for the GCL Twins. On a positive note, Seth Stohs and others have reported that he was very good in the Fall Instructional League. Watts was the Twins sixteenth round pick in 2009 out of Cal State, Stanislaus. Watts began his year in Beloit with a stop in Ft. Myers before making a couple late season appearances in New Britain. Watts had a combined 6-3 record, 3.10 ERA and 89 strikeouts in 81.1 innings with 44 walks.

Voting for this round will remain open until 3pm, Wednesday, January 5th. Please continue to comment on why you voted for certain players and who you would like to see added. Also, let me know what your thoughts are on two high picks from 2009, Matt Bashore and Ben Tootle. Both were considered top prospects when drafted, however, missed most of 2009 and all of 2010 with injuries. Should they be included at some point?
