Twins Sign Top Pick Stewart
The Twins have signed first round pick Kohl Stewart. The team selected the pitcher fourth overall in the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft earlier this month. The 18-year-old was ranked as the top high school pitching prospect in this year’s class. He went 5-and-1 with a 0.18 ERA in eight starts this past spring at Houston’s St. Pius X High.
