The Twins wrapped up Day 2 of the MLB Draft, selecting eight players; five of them being pitchers. The team's first selection of the day was Blayne Enlow at the No. 76 pick.

Enlow was considered a top-30 prospect who dangles a filthy breaking ball. Three of the pitchers drafted on Tuesday are also lefties. Here's who they selected.

  • RHP Blayne Enlow, St. Amant (Louisiana) High School,
  • LHP Charlie Carnes, Clemson University
  • 3B Andrew Bechtold, Chipola College
  • SS Ricardo De La Torre, Puerto Rico Baseball Academy
  • LHP Ryley Widell, Central Arizona College
  • LHP Bryan Sammons Western Carolina University
  • OF Mark Contreas, UC Riverside
  • LHP Calvin Faucher University of California-Irvine

All-in-all Minnesota drafted two high school players and added six college products.

Wednesday will be the final day of the draft with rounds 11-40.
