Twins prospects on view at spring training

The Minnesota Twins play their first spring training game of the year against another team Friday in Florida. The game against Boston will be the first taste of major league competition for some top Twins prospects.

Their names are already familiar to many fans:

Outfielder Byron Buxton heads just about everyone's list of top prospects in all of baseball...with third baseman Miguel Sano not far behind.

Pitcher Alex Meyer has also been invited to spring training and he's seen as a potential ace in the future.

MPR's Perry Finelli talked Twins prospects with Howard Sinker, digital sports editor for the Star Tribune.
