Turner is undoubtedly the organization's best catching prospect going forward, since Pinto is graduating the list this season. He carries accolades for both his bat and his skills as a backstop. He seems a good bet to be given time over a full season this year, instead of a short season, so we'll get to see him over an extended period and we'll see how ready he is. Can he develop quickly? How much room does he have to grow? There's upside, but a lot of unanswered questions, too.
Taylor Rogers, LHP
2014 Age: 23
2013 High Level: Fort Myers, 130.2 (Advanced-A)
Rogers was, as our own Roger notes, one of the better pitchers in the Twins' minor league system last year. He doesn't strike anyone out, but the command is decent and he does a good job of limiting base runners. He was an 11th-round pick in 2012 so you'd like to hope he can move quickly, but some of that will depend on how well he adapts to tougher competition. Can he continue to be successful even if he posts pedestrian strikeout rates?
