Royce Lewis listed on Twins' initial 60-man roster

Top prospect Royce Lewis was included in the Twins' 60-man roster for the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

Like many MLB teams the Twins are using the taxi squad as a means to continue developing their top prospects. Lewis, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2017 draft, would likely need a couple of injuries to get a chance in the majors this season. He should be considered a good bet to start contributing in 2021, however.

Royce Lewis hits second homer of the spring on Tuesday

Royce Lewis went 1-for-3 with a homer in the Twins' Grapefruit League game against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The homer was his second of the spring. Lewis, the first overall pick in the 2017 draft, is set to begin the season in Double-A. He'll likely be an everyday player for the Twins by the early part of the 2021 season.

Royce Lewis scores three runs on Friday

Royce Lewis went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, and three runs scored in the Twins' spring opener against the University of Minnesota on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The 20-year-old shortstop is considered one of the best prospects in baseball. Lewis had somewhat of a down season in 2019, batting .236/.290/.371 between High-A and Double-A. However, he rebounded in a big way in the Arizona Fall League en route to winning MVP. If he gets off to a strong start in Double-A again this year it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in the majors later this summer.

Royce Lewis reassigned to minor league camp

The Twins have sent top prospect Royce Lewis down to minor league camp.

Fantasy Impact

Lewis dealt with a strained oblique all spring and never got into a game. There's still a chance he could return later this spring, but it's a bummer for Baseball America's ninth ranked prospect. He carries plenty of value in dynasty leagues.

Royce Lewis (oblique) out indefinitely

Twins top prospect Royce Lewis is out indefinitely with a strained right oblique.

Fantasy Impact

Lewis described the pain as if "something was stabbing him". It doesn't sound like a severe injury but 2017's number one overall pick could've used as many spring ABs as possible. Baseball America recently ranked Lewis as the ninth best prospect in the game.
