The accolades continue to roll in for the Minnesota Twins' newly-revamped farm system.

According to Baseball America's newest top-100 prospect list, unveiled Tuesday, the Twins have two players in the top 10 -- third baseman Miguel Sano (9) and outfielder Byron Buxton (10).

Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia (41), right-hander Alex Meyer (59), right-hander Kyle Gibson (68) and outfielder Aaron Hicks (72) also cracked the list.

Those same six players were also ranked in MLB.com's top-100 prospect list earlier this offseason.

In an interview with 1500 ESPN on Sunday, Twins assistant GM Rob Antony said Sano, in particular, despite never having played above Low-A, is "not far away" from the big leagues. Sano hit .258/.373/.521 with 28 home runs and 100 RBIs for Beloit last year.
