2008 Ranking
| Not Ranked

The Twins drafted Dan Osterbrock in the 7th round of the 2008 draft. He had a very successful career with the Cincinnati Bearcats, but he's been even better as a Twin. He had a 13/1 K/BB ratio in his first season of Rookie Ball. Osterbrock has oustanding control on his pitches and has a great arsenal of pitches in which he's in able to use at any time. Here are his Scouting Report from The Baseball Cube:

Osterbrock will probably spend most (if not all) of the 2009 season in the Midwest League, but he is a guy to keep an eye on to jump a level or two per season the rest of the way through the system. He is a very polished pither and it will be interesting to see the way he plays in full season league like the Midwest League.
