Lewis Thorpe heads the list of players sent to the minor league complex.
Along with Thorpe, the Twins also optioned infielders Nick Gordon and Travis Blankenhorn; outfielder Gilberto Celestino; and pitchers Jorge Alcala, Dakota Chalmers and Jhoan Duran to Minor League camp in a big exodus of top talent. All seven prospects are on the 40-man roster and listed among MLB Pipeline's top 30 in the organization.
