One of Terry Ryan's main goals since resuming his role as Minnesota Twins general manager was to bolster the organization's pipeline of young talent.
It appears the Twins are on the right path.
MLB.com unveiled its annual Top 100 Prospects list on Tuesday night, and the Twins were well-represented with six, including 3B Miguel Sano (No. 12), OF Byron Buxton (No. 19), RHP Alex Meyer (No. 40), RHP Kyle Gibson (No. 49), OF Oswaldo Arcia (No. 93) and OF Aaron Hicks (No. 98).
Gibson, Arcia and Hicks are all expected to compete for spots on the 25-man roster during spring training. Meyer could see time in the big leagues as soon as this year. Sano and Buxton still have yet to play above Single-A.
Texas Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar topped the list.
