Continued: Twins must wait and watch with No. 4 overall draft pick

After that, the Twins ranked the best players by position. They will spend the first handful of rounds drafting the best player available. But when the smoke clears, they will draft several pitchers.

“You still got guys with ability on the board, high upside players,’’ Johnson said of the first five rounds. “We’re still going to try to get that, whether that be a pitcher or position player. We are still going to try to get starters, that philosophy hasn’t changed.’’

This week, discussions with agents who are advising prospects have been ongoing. Twins General Manager Terry Ryan and assistant GM Rob Antony have remained in the Twin Cities so they can speak with agents.

Teams will try to get an idea of what other clubs are doing. Some teams will share information, based on relationships. Some frequently send out mixed signals.

“There is a lot of poker being played right now,’’ Radcliff said.
