07:41 AM ET 01.22 | The future remains bright for Twins 3B prospect Miguel Sano. After some years of being a relatively weak spot prospect-wise, third base has become much deeper in talent. 1. Miguel Sano, Twins: There isn't a player in the Minor Leagues with more raw power than Sano, who has been one of the most-watched prospects since he signed with Minnesota in 2009. The exciting thing is that the power has been consistent almost from the get-go, and he was one of four prospects to hit 30 or more homers and drive in more than 100 runs in 2013. Yes, there's some swing-and-miss in his game, but he's a better overall hitter than many think. Some believe he'll eventually have to change positions, but with that bat, who cares?

Where he can look forward to playing in obscurity.

Great news for Twinkle fans, but there is only one problem, if he is that good he will leave Minnesota as soon as he is eligible for free agency for the big money he cannot get there.

You have to extend them before arbitration just as the Rays did with Longoria.

That is a long way off. They should get at least 3-4 years and then have an attractive trading chip if nothing else

This is assuming that the Red Sox don't move Bogaerts to 3b.

Bogaerts won't be as good as this kid.

You're right. He'll be better.

BTW: the Red Sox sign OF Grady Sizemore.
