Seth Stohs of TwinsDaily.com will chat with players in the Minnesota Twins minor league system each Monday night. This week, he will chat with one player who made his Major League debut in 2017 for the Twins. He will also talk with three top Twins prospects, all three of which appeared in Baseball America's Top 10 Twins Prospect rankings (and Seth's personal Top 10 Twins prospects).
The following will be guests on this show:
Toby Hanson is a senior on the University of Minnesota baseball team. He went to high school at Delano. As a junior in 2017, he hit .319/.350/.477 (.827) with 14 doubles, four triples and five home runs.
Aaron Slegers made his Major League debut with a strong game against Cleveland. The lanky right-handed pitcher has moved up one level each season. He'll join the show and we'll talk about his debut, being in the Twins clubhouse down the stretch, and look forward to 2018.
Alex Kirilloff was the Twins first-round pick in 2016. He debuted in Elizabethton where he hit .306 with seven homers in 55 games. Unfortunately, he missed the 2017 season after having Tommy John surgery in March. We'll discuss the injury, rehab and his hopes and goals for 2018.
Brent Rooker was the Twins 38th round pick in 2016, but he returned to Mississippi State where he won the SEC's Triple Crown in 2017. The Twins selected him again in 2017, but this time as a Comp pick after the first round. He split his pro debut between Elizabethton and Ft. Myers and hit a combined 18 HRs. We'll discuss his debut and his goals for 2018.
Royce Lewis was the first overall pick in the 2017 draft out of high school. He debuted in thet GCL but moved up to Cedar Rapids. He's the top Twins prospect and we'll find out what that means to him.
