As I indicated yesterday, middle infield is one of the needs for the Twins that will be addressed in the 2010 MLB Amateur draft. Here is an alphabetic list of 34 middle infielders of note, eligible for the 2010 draft. Almost certainly one or more of these, will 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.
