Minnesota Twins Top Prospects and Where They’ll Open 2021 Season

The Minnesota Twins season is already well-underway but that’s not the case for its minor league affiliates. Their seasons will start this week but before these affiliates play any games, they need players. All four of the Twins’ minor league teams (A, A, AA, AAA) released their Opening Day rosters today. Let’s take a peak at where the Twins’ top prospects (MLB.com) landed.

Remember, the Twins’ top prospect, Royce Lewis, is out for the season, following knee surgery. Alex Kirilloff, their #2 prospect, is already with the big league club.
