In the 27th round, the Twins selected Gabriel Ojeda, a catcher from Puerto Rico.
In the 28th round, the Twins selected Austin Diemer, a CF from Cal-Fullerton
In the 29th round, the Twins selected Cameron Avila-Leeper, a LHP from Grant (Calif) High.
In the 30th round, the Twins selected Theo Theofanopoulos, a LHP from Cal
In the 31st round, the Twins selected Sam Hilliard, a LHP from Crowder College (Mo)
Sounds like the Twins are taking a shot at signing him. Here's BA:
Hilliard could be a two-way impact player at Wichita State if he doesn’t sign. He played one season at Navarro (Texas) JC before transferring to Crowder, where he wound up performing better on the mound. Hilliard’s fastball can sit around 90 mph from a high arm slot, and he’s built for durability at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds. He has plenty of strength that plays at the plate as well, though he hit just three home runs this spring.
In the 32nd round, the Twins selected Orynn Veillon, a RHP from St. Thomas More High (La.).
He's signed with Lousiana-Layfayette. Sounds like a heck of an athlete. Good hoops player.
In the 33rd round, the Twins selected Trey Vavra, a 1B from Florida Southern...
Yup, the Twins take another one of Joe Vavra's kids.
