Minnesota Twins: Varland and Miranda named Top Minor Leaguers of 2021

Every year, the Minnesota Twins announce two players, one batter and one pitcher as their Minor League Hitter and Minor League Pitcher of the year. It’s fun to break down who wins each year as these players end up in the majors sooner rather than later.

In 2019, Trevor Larnach and Randy Dobnak were named the Minor League Player and Pitcher of the year, and within a year and a half both were in the majors. In 2018, it was Alex Kirilloff and Lewis Thorpe. In 2017, it was Brent Rooker and Stephen Gonsalves. All six of those players have already seen the majors.
