⚾️Missed the On Deck Circle Podcast live stream? Check us out as 😍@nzaniboni93🧢@JRBecks and I go "Down on the Farm" to discuss Minnesota Twins prospect Spencer Steer @spenc__er of the @StPaulSaints
My midseason #MNTwins top prospect update, focusing on seven players having big, stock-raising first halves.
Emmanuel Rodriguez, CF
Spencer Steer, 3B/2B
David Festa, RHP
Cade Povich, LHP
Christian Encarnacion-Strand, 3B
Marco Raya, RHP
Louie Varland, RHP
Spencer Steer of @Twins keeps powering up at Triple-A, hits 10th HR in 25 games since promotion from Double-A, where he had 8 HR in 35 G, goes 2-for-4 with HR on Thur; see where 24-year-old 2B is in our updated #FantasyBaseball Top 500 Prospect Rankings https://t.co/wl4v3GfSKY
Spencer Steer hit his 10th home run of the year for St Paul in only his 25th game of the year for them. He also had 8 with Wichita in 35 games this year, giving him 18 HR in 60 games. Brian Dozier, anyone?
@weigel_a @CodyPirkl When Polanco comes back, you can get Arráez a lot of ABs as a third baseman as well. Urshela kind of becomes the third best option at 3B.
I'd favor trading Urshela. The Twins could always call up Spencer Steer if someone hit the IL. Steer is already knocking on the door anyways.
@OfficiallyJace @therealLHSV @Clay_sno I’d love to see the Reds pry one of Larnach or Kirilloff from the Twins. I’d expect the Twins to be reluctant. Spencer Steer would be a great secondary piece.
Groshans isn’t an outfielder but think he’s an excellent target for the Reds and essentially MLB ready.
@twinsdaily @NoDakTwinsFan Urshela = Yes. Miranda and Arráez can cover 3B with Spencer Steer looking ready in AAA.
Kepler = Maybe after the season ends since the Twins will have too many lefty corner OFs going forward.
Sano = You're not going to get anything for him, so just keep him.
Correa = WTF no
@LetsTalk_Twins I definitely would. Urshela is the definition of mediocre third baseman (102 OPS+, 0.5 WAR).
Since may 26th, Miranda has hit .333/.355/.567 (.922 OPS). The Twins will also need to find places to play Arráez when Polanco returns. And Spencer Steer looks MLB ready in AAA as well.
@e_hughes11 @DanHayesMLB @AaronGleeman Jorge Polanco. The twins are stacked with in house SS options. Spencer steer can play SS too. Gordon is hopefully just a back up to start the season. Obviously it’d be nice to have Correa as well, but Polanco at SS, Miranda or Arraez at 2B and Kiriloff at 1st isn’t bad
Spencer Steer of @Twins mashing even more in first 16 games at Triple-A (1.071 OPS, 8 HR) after crushing in 35 games at Double-A (.976 OPS, 8 HR), 24-year-old 2B rises 13 spots in our updated #FantasyBaseball Top 500 Prospect Rankings https://t.co/zm7CM6lXek

❗️ CHECK THIS OUT ❗️
Louie Varland (@LouieVarland) named Twins Minor League Pitcher of the Week.
Former Wind Surge Infielder, Spencer Steer (@spenc__er ), name Twins Minor League Player of the Week. https://t.co/UoagIciJLP
@DanBarreiroKFAN SS I presents a dilemma for the Twins next season IF Correa does opt out. Lewis is likely out 14 months is what I’m hearing. Our best infield prospect is Spencer Steer (Saints)-he has a 1.007 OPS 16 HRs & 49 RBIs.
While you're watching the last couple of #MNTwins innings, check out all that happened in the Twins Minor League system on Thursday! Joe Ryan Rehabbing. David Festa Dominating. And a Walk-off from Spencer Steer.
Spencer Steer has put in the work and made himself into one of the #MNTwins top prospects. He has powered through the minor leagues and is now with the @StPaulSaints. He leads Twins minor leaguers in 2B, HR and RBI. (Article and Video) https://t.co/OpJrxfAkkU
@aaronwelch @Clay_sno I don't dislike Martin, but I don't value him like a "top organization" or "top 100" prospect either.
From the Twins I'd rather have:
Simeon Woods-Richardson + Spencer Steer + x
From the Dodgers I like Vargas and Pages a lot. Knack too.
Dodgers are a problem
ICYMI: There were many prospects who played at an elite level for the Minnesota Twins this week. Alex Kirilloff and Spencer Steer each cranked 4 home runs, but who else joined them in this week's edition of Minor League Monday?
All four affiliates had winning weeks. The DSL and FCL Twins started their seasons. The Mighty Mussels tossed another no-hitter. Spencer Steer had a 3-homer game. Alex Kirilloff and Emmanuel Rodriguez put up some crazy offensive numbers. What a week!
Spencer Steer of @Twins rides 3-HR game on Sun, has 4 HR in past 2 games at Triple-A, 24-year-old 2B moves up 44 spots into top 200 of our updated #FantasyBaseball Top 500 Prospect Rankings https://t.co/zm7CM6lXek

@AaronGleeman If Spencer Steer continues his development, he may force the Twins FO to add him to the 40 man roster. He would give the Twins an infielder with power. Depth. We can always use more prospects banging on the door to play at ML level. Good news. Thanks Aaron for the info.
@jzenk42 @JackGriffiin @AaronGleeman Nick Gordon has very little value for the Twins at this point. He's not going to displace Arráez in the infield; Celestino is now better in the outfield. With more prospects like Austin Martin and Spencer Steer on the horizon, the Twins should deal Gordon for relief help now.
Spencer Steer was promoted to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday after a successful second turn through Double-A Wichita. He’s now one step away from an eventual Major League debut.
St. Paul has sent IF Kevin Merrell to Wichita to make room for Spencer Steer. He was signed to a MiLB deal this off-season. He has hit at both Wichita and St. Paul, but Steer getting playing time is obviously the priority. 3 HR at each level, but no OBP skill.
