2017

Javier, an 18-year-old from the Dominican Republic who received a $4 million signing bonus in 2015, finally made his professional debut and impressed, albeit in a very small sample. He notched a 199 wRC+, 5:4 K:BB and two home runs across nine games (30 plate appearances) in the the Dominican Summer League before being shut down for the season with a hamstring injury. A potential plus hitter with plus power who has a shot at sticking at shortstop, Javier has the most upside of any player in the Twins system. He measures in at 6-foot-1, 165 pounds, but he projects to fill out in the coming years. With added strength should come a more impactful swing, which will allow him to realize his potential as a hitter. He is at least four years away from sniffing the majors, but if he hits over a full season in 2017, his price tag in dynasty leagues will skyrocket.
