Twins' top draft pick to make pro debut Thursday


Kohl Stewart, the Texas high school right-hander the Twins picked in the first round of the MLB draft last month, is set to make his professional debut Thursday.

Stewart will appear in a Gulf Coast League game in Fort Myers, Fla., facing Tampa Bay Rays minor leaguers, the Pioneer Press reports.

Stewart signed with the Twins on June 19, passing up a football scholarship at Texas A&M to play baseball instead.
