Australians who could make it to Twins before Lewis Thorpe (in order):

James Beresford, 27, 2B-SS: Entering 10th season in organization. A lefthanded hitter who batted .307 at Class AAA in 2015. With the beloved Doug Bernier gone, maybe he will see big leagues.

Sam Gibbons, 22, RH starter: Had four-start stretch last August at Class A Cedar Rapids with 1.16 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 31 innings.

Logan Wade, 24, utility: Plays everywhere but catcher and switch hits. There's always hope for a guy like that.
