The Minnesota Twins minor league system lacks top-tier talent right now, but the organization did place four youngsters on Baseball America’s top 100 prospect list, which was published on BA’s website Wednesday.
The highest-ranked Twins prospect was starting pitcher Kyle Gibson, who Twins fans might see as soon as this season. He placed 34th and was followed by outfielder Aaron Hicks (45th), infielder Miguel Sano (60th) and outfielder Joe Benson (100th).
Washington Nationals No. 1 overall pick Bryce Harper was ranked first overall. The Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Rays dominate the first 30 or 40 picks on the prospect list. The Royals had three of the top 10 and five of the top 20.
