Kyle Gibson RHP (07-09) Minnesota Twins.
Gibson spent part of 2013 as a starter for the Twins and was one of the final pitchers to make the Twins roster for 2014. He needs to prove he belongs at this level this season.

Doug Mathis RHP (05)
Round Rock Express (Pacific Coast League) Texas Rangers organization. In his 10th season in professional baseball, Mathis has been with several organizations, has been up to the major leagues and back down to the minors with several organizations (including a stint in Korea). For 2014 he is back with the organization where his career started. This will likely be a make-or-break season for his career. He either proves himself and moves back up to the Rangers, or they'll release him mid-summer, and from that point his future in professional baseball would be doubtful.
Brett Nicholas C/1B (10)
Round Rock Express (Pacific Coast League) Texas Rangers organization. Nicholas, who has been splitting time between catching and first base during his minor league career, was a non-roster invitee to the Rangers spring training camp. He has been steadily rising through the Rangers' farm system, powered by a productive bat and flexibility at defense. He's probably a long shot to make the major league club in 2014, short of a breakout season in Round Rock. But he's definitely a true big league prospect.
First day. Feeling fortunate to be able to put this jersey on! @MaxBatBaseball @LzSkinsBaseball @palmettosports pic.twitter.com/GBL7Hc1Z4f — Brett Nicholas (@bnicholas15) February 17, 2014
