Miguel Angel Sano tops list of breakout performers in the Minnesota Twins system

This offseason, will be honoring the players -- regardless of age or prospect status -- who had the best seasons in their organizations. We're taking a look at each team to determine the outstanding seasons in Minor League baseball. Select a team from the dropdown below.

The debate over which organization has baseball's best farm system might be a close one, but there's no question that Minnesota's ranks in the upper echelon of player development pipelines. There's certainly no debating that the Twins' one-two prospect punch of Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano is the tops in the game.

Scary thing is, there's plenty to excite Minnesota fans beyond that duo. Three of the team's full-season affiliates qualified for postseason play (Triple-A Rochester, Class A Advanced Fort Myers and Class A Cedar Rapids), but more important to the big picture, the Twins' big-name prospects emerged as budding can't-miss stars, while former sleepers and unknowns became breakout performers, and in some cases, Major League contributors.
