It was a challenging year for many of the Twins’ famous prospects. Royce Lewis had his second ACL surgery on his knee, Emmanuel Rodriguez’s season ended early with knee surgery, Jordan Balazovic had shoulder issues and posted a 7.79 ERA, and Austin Martin slugged .316 in Double-A. None of that is good. On the other hand, the Twins got arguably the best hitter in July’s draft in Brooks Lee, Edouard Julien looked great, showing intriguing power and speed, and Misael Urbina started to put things together. So, as the old saying goes, you have to take the good with the bad.
