Stewart is a classic lifer AAA pitcher. He cannot make the jump.
One of the worst 1st round picks in Twins history. Considering how high our selection was that year, he may very well be the worst.
If you consider some of the pitchers chosen over the past ten years in the draft, you can see the complete "system failure" with respect to drafting top notch pitchers that SHOULD be part of the rotation RIGHT NOW! The draft should have provided at least two more pitchers at least or better quality than Berrios. Further, there should also be a couple of additional quality BP arms now pitching for the Twins who were failed starters. This is why the Twins are so far behind the Indians with respect to the pitching staffs.
2013 MLB draft
# of first round pitchers currently in the bigs
ONE: Jon Gray (picked just ahead of Stewart)
Sean Manea of Oakland was a competitive round pick
Aaron Judge(compensatory round)
This was the Mark Appel Draft. Considering Stewart has even pitched in the bigs the Twins did WELL compared to other teams.
Berrios was the 32nd pick.Buxton was picked 2nd that year. Good draft.
These blanket statements just kill me. Are you just out to bait people with broad stroke Gas?
Yeah, the Twins should draft pitching better. You'd be better off with actual statements of truth than this.
The Twins had a pattern of college pitchers trying to fit as starters. THAT was an epic failure,
Luke Bard(now w/Angels)
All 2012 in the top 10
in 2013 in the top 10
Ryan Eades #2- still in AAA, 1 cup of coffee in 2019
Garver was a 9th round pick that year.
Just those 2 years, you see how poorly they DEVELOPED players
and they're not alone, which is why most teams outside the Dodgers and Astros are constantly shuffling pitching.
The management changed, the philosophy changed. W/O trading for help, developing it like this is like watching a snail in a 100 meter race: Slow and painful.
And yep, we're seeing the results. A bunch of nobodies and has-beens paraded through MN year after year.
Nope, about two months ago I posted all of the pitchers the Twins have drafted over the last 15 seasons or so. It is truly amazing how few ever evolved into anything as far as a ML career. You picked a couple years where the Twins did not fare quite as badly. But there have been many seasons where the draft was a complete bust with respect to pitchers. And it is not particularly encouraging right now despite Failvine presumably "loading" our farm system with prospects. What is truly amazing is the number of pitchers the Twins parade through every season with the ultimate DFA tag. This year, the DFA was used at a premium. What seems to be the most troubling occurrence is the Twins prospects topping out at the AAA or mythical AAAA level. Players that go up and down between the Twins and Rochester, that look like a can't miss thing on the mound until they enter a game in a Twins uniform. Some of this HAS to be on poor coaching, there can be no other logical explanation.
