Who is hot in the minors V3

This is the third version of the list of the best performing players in the Twins' minor league system year to date. A reminder that several players are still in extended spring training since the Elizabethton (Appalachian League) and the Gulf Coast League rookie teams have not started their seasons yet. The numbers are as of 5/25. Some players have dropped from the list either because their performance dropped or because they were promoted (Swarzak, Henn):


Allan de San Miguel (RHB, 21, A, A+, AA, AAA) .278/.447/.361, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 47 PA


Brian Dinkelman (LHB, 25, AA) .343/.422/.507, 3 HR, 29 RBI, 164 PA
Danny Valencia (RHB, 24, AA) .339/.432/.597 5 HR, 22 RBI, 146 PA
Ramon Santana (RHB, 24, A) .402/.495/.646 4 HR, 19 RBI, 98 PA


Ben Revere (RHB, 21, AA) .335/.403/.399 1 HR, 20 RBI, 18 SB, 176 PA

What's the latest on Casilla?

Marv said...

I notice that Casilla is hitting .231 in his last 10 games (39 at bats). Not what I suspect we'd all hoped for.
Luke Hughes is hitting even worse for the last 10 games batting .194 in 36 at bats.
In fact, they all suck in the last 10 games. What are they doing down there?
Maybe Danny Valencia can jump from AA. There has to be someone out there that can hit over .200 and play in the infield.

Yes, they both were not that great this week. Hughes is hurt. And arm issue. I hope that was his hitting problem. He still hits LHP pretty well and when healed is worth a call up.

The only was I can see Valencia up this season before September is if Crede is placed on the DL and Valencia takes over at the full time 3B

Tolleson is been heating up in new Britain but he is not going to crack this list yet because he started very slow. Give him a couple more weeks

Dinkelman is not on the 40 man roster but has been very consistent this season.

Of course it is not a secret that I do not find a single redeeming factor of having Buscher and Redmond in the bigs at this point...
