Minnesota Twins: Interview with Twins Prospect Matt Canterino

Matt Canterino was picked by the Minnesota Twins in the 2019 draft, with the 54th pick in the second round. He’s a pitcher with a strong fastball and two other plus pitches in his four pitch mix. A top 50 draft prospect before the draft due to his performance at Rice University, Canterino has continued his success since reaching the pro level.

Upon reaching the minor leagues, Canterino (over two levels) started 7 games and threw 25 innings, striking out 31, with an ERA of just 2.16. He quickly has risen up the prospect rankings to #14 in the Twins system (per Prospects1500), with a lot of optimism over how he’s developing.
