James Beresford was fifth with 18 votes while Anderson Hidalgo had 10 and Evan Bigley 9. Both Bigley and Hidalgo will remain in our next round.

Dropped from voting witll be Adam Bryant (5), Jose Gonzalez (4) and Bobby Lanigan (3). Added will be Steven Gruver, A. J. Pettersen, Luis Nunez and Markus Solbach. Gruver reported to Elizabethton after the draft where he posted a 1-0 record with a 3.45 ERA in 31.1 innings. Working out of the bullpen, Gruver struck out 32 batters while walking 10. Pettersen had the misfortune of being hit in the face a few days after reporting causing him to miss about half of his short season. Limited to only 56 at bats, Pettersen hit .286 while striking out only nine times, taking seven walks and scoring sixteen runs. Nunez was the main closer for the GCL Twins, where he had a perfect 5-0 record with a 1.67 ERA in 32.1 innings. He also recorded 37 strikeouts while issuing only six walks. Solbach is a young German who was playing his first professional baseball as a Twin. He had a 3-3 record with a 1.91 ERA in 28.1 innings.

The next round will remain open through noon, Wednesday.
