This is the second year that Derek Falvey, the Twins' Chief Baseball Officer, is in charge of the draft for Minnesota. He led the decision-making that led the Twins to take 18-year-old shortstop Royce Lewis with the No. 1 overall pick last season. 

Lewis is off to a fantastic start in the minors, and was recently referred to as the second coming of future Hall of Fame shortstop, Derek Jeter.
