Lewis Thorpe Contract Information:
Agreed to sign with the Twins in July of 2012.
Thorpe, coming off a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his left (throwing) elbow, didn't pitch in winter ball and the Twins are hopeful an offseason of rest will correct the issue, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. “Right now we’re expecting him to break (camp)," said Brad Steil, Twins director of minor league operations. "Depending on the throwing program and the point we get him back on the mound, we are hoping he'll break with the club."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Thorpe has emerged as a top pitching prospect for the Twins after an impressive season for Minnesota's team in the Gulf Coast Rookie league. He had a dominating 64:6 K:BB ratio in 44 innings with a 2.05 ERA, all at age 18. He made just eight starts (four relief appearances), so we'll need to see how he holds up with a larger workload. But his first full professional season could signal great things to come.
