Note: With a lot of recent demotions by the Twins there are a lot of players in the minors that I do not deem prospects (prospects to me mean players that have yet to be on the teams 25 man roster). To cover them I have also added a section of players of interest.
1. 3B Danny Valencia AA - New Britain
Previous Rank: 1
Stats: .275 3 HR 9 RBI
Did not play this week due to a sore wrist but should be back at any time.
2. C Wilson Ramos AA - New Britain
Previous Rank: 2
Stats: .269 1 HR 10 RBI
Is struggling a little on offense with a .289 OBP and a .344 SLG with only 5 extra base hits.
3. OF Ben Revere High A - Fort Myers
Previous Rank: 3
Stats: .308 1 HR 17 RBI 15 SB
Basically a singles hitter with only 3 extra base hits but he gets on base and steals a lot of bases when he does.
4. OF Aaron Hicks Rookie - Elizabethton
Previous Rank: 4
5. RHP Anthony Slama AA - New Britain
Previous Rank: 5
Stats: 15.1 IP 2.35 ERA 26 K
Has struggled a little recently but 26 strikeouts in 15 innings is a very good rate.
6. RHP Anthony Swarzak AAA - Rochester
Previous Rank: 6

A sign he is favor with the Twins brass. He has only walked 6 batters in 31 innings.
7. RHP Carlos Guetierrez High A - Fort Myers
Previous Rank: 7

Has done a good job recently cutting down the strikeouts striking out only 6 times in the last 30 at-bats. That may not sound impressive but before that he had struck out 15 times in 57 at-bats.
