WWWWWW - I was too lazy to scroll down to last weeks posts related to Twins prospects but I believe you missed this up and coming stud. Luke Hughes is absolutely lighting it up with the New Britain Rock Cats. This young Aussie was named the Twins minor league player of the month for April and it was really a no brainer. He's like a Nick Punto that can swat. Apparently they have played him at multiple positions but he appears to be settling in at 3rd base, most likely because that has been a giant black hole in the organization since the God Man was patrolling the hot corner.
Here are his stats in 29 games.

Not sure where he was drafted. Not sure where he is ranked in our prospect list but who cares. Keep an eye on this hitting machine.
