Andrei Lobanov signed with the Twins as a non-drafted free agent in August of 2007. He's spent two years in the Gulf Coast League, but he showed significant improvements in 2009, which is why he has moved up from no. 50 (his ranking on this list last year). Lobanov is a lanky southpaw with impeccable command. In 2009, Lobanov didn't walk a batter until the final game of the season. He also struck out 35 batters in 22 innings of work. He will spend the 2010 season in Elizabethton.
