The Twins tenth round pick will either become a big time centerfield prospect for the Twins, or will be helping LSU try to win a National Championship next season. The Twins are hoping for the first scenario, as they selected Jared Mitchell out of Westgate High School in Louisiana. He has speed to burn, but is raw, and scouts don’t know how his bat will project.
In Mitchell, the Twins will get a great athlete, who already projects to be a great defensive centerfielder. He has a good arm, and he hits from the left-side, so he’ll be a big-time bunt threat. He reminds some scouts of a young Denard Span.
