The Twins have one of the game’s top prospects in Byron Buxton. Injuries were the root of a down 2014 season but the young outfielder is still just a year removed from slashing .334/.424/.510 and stealing 55 bags.

Miguel Sano is another promising prospect coming off of injury. Tommy John surgery took away his entire 2014 season but no one believes the injury will limit the power that allowed him to 83 home runs from 2011-2013.

Alex Meyer and Trevor May are the future of the Twins rotation. Both have front of the rotation ability but neither has shown enough consistency to be a big leaguer yet.

Jorge Polanco has the offensive tools to play in the big leagues but may find himself in the outfield in his glove doesn’t improve.
