2015

2014

Tonkin is a late bloomer who came on strong in the minors the past three seasons with outstanding strikeout rates and a mid-90s fastball. He began last season in Double-A, but aced his second trip to the level and then also posted a strong strikeout rate while showing good control at Triple-A. After he was called up in September he struck out 10 batters in 11.1 innings and did not give up an earned run until his ninth and final appearance with the Twins. Despite his fastball velocity (94.4 mph), Tonkin's age (24) could limit his upside, and he did give up five unearned runs with the Twins last year. Still, he could win a high-leverage role in Minnesota's bullpen with a strong spring.
