1BMinnesota Twins  
February 26, 2014
Barrie, an 18-year old prospect from Australia, signed a contract with the Twins that included a signing bonus of around $250,000, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Barrie led his team to the gold medal while earning the best hitter award in the Under-18 Australian national championships in January. He doesn't profile as adding much with the glove, but the Twins feel he could be an impact bat and beat out three other teams to sign him. He'll likely begin the season in Minnesota's Gulf Coast rookie league team.
