MLB Draft Rumors: Kevin Gausman Could Be Minnesota Twins' Favorite

The Minnesota Twins have been linked with Byron Buxton for awhile now, but the latest MLB draft rumors heading into Monday night seem to believe that the team playing its home games at Target Field is ready to go in a different direction. It shouldn't be a surprise when it happens, either, according to one local report.

Charley Waters of the Pioneer Press wrote on Monday that the team is apparently leaning toward LSU Tigers pitcher Kevin Gausman when their turn comes up following the first pick from the Houston Astros.

The Minnesota Twins have the No. 2 overall pick in Major League Baseball's amateur draft Monday evening, June 4. Don't be surprised if they choose 6-foot-4, 190-pound right-handed pitcher Kevin Gausman and his 94-mph fastball from Louisiana State.

Gausman seems to be gaining steam on Monday afternoon considering ESPN's Keith Law mentioned his name as one of the possibilities the Twins could look at on Monday night.
