I'm guessing that it is assumed Kepler will be trade bait or get deported back to Germany at some point since he doesn't appear on the future roster part... ?

I'm surprised to see Arcia listed at DH in the projected lineup. I like that they kept Span and not Revere though, if only that would truly happen

I don't see Kepler ready by 2016. Especially with how Twins seem to slowly push their OF'ers along

Surprised that Rosario is so low and that Daniel Santana is so high, but I'm okay with the rest of the list. It's been a few years since the Twins had this nice of a Top 10.

Very true... forgot how young he is.

I think Kepler will be ready by 2016, its just who are you gonna sit ahead of him? No one

Things work themselves out and BA tells you to not look closely at the projected rosters, they are just for fun

Kennys Vargas has more power than Sano.

Vargas- 11 HR, 41 G, 186 PA, 16.9 PA per HR vs Sano- 28 HR, 129 G, 553 PA, 19.75 PA per HR. I'll rephrase it, if it was who could hit it hardest and farthest, Kennys wins. Vargas had a 50 game weight loss drug suspension last year, so he didn't have as many games.
