MLB Draft 2012: Scouting Report On Twins Pick Jose Berrios

The Minnesota Twins had three picks on the first day of the 2012 MLB Draft and, fortunately, they all seem to be fairly promising. The most random selection may have been their first pick in the compensation round, however, as Jose Berrios wasn't ranked quite as high as the Twins picked him.

It seems signability might have been taken into concern, though, and even then SB Nation's John Sickels writes about him as a pretty promising player.

Listed at 6-2, 180, Berrios added 20 pounds to his frame in the last 12 months, boosting his fastball as high as 97-98MPH. He also has a very good slider and changeup, and should be easily signable away from Miami Dade JC in this slot.

Berrios was born in 1994 and will be coming to the Twins organization straight of the Bayamon, Puerto Rico high school leagues if Minnesota's able to sign him easy as it sounds like they should be.
