2010 MLB draft: 26 Left Hand Pitchers you should know

Earlier this week, I presented a list of 34 middle infield prospects for the 2010 MLB draft. An additional, and more pressing need for the Twins organization that will be addressed in the 2010 MLB Amateur draft, is left hand pitchers and especially starters. Here is an alphabetic list of 26 LHP of note, eligible for the 2010 draft. One or more of these, could be drafted by the Twins. There are links to player profiles, statistics, scouting reports and videos, as well as different articles and interviews when I could find them. The list consists of shortstops and second basemen, however, some of these players project to play at third base in the next level. All links open pages on a new window/tab so you do not have to navigate away from this page and then get back.
