The Minnesota Twins reported to their Spring Training facility at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, FL earlier this week and unfortunately are already dealing with a bit of training camp controversy.

Spring Training is the ultimate opportunity for top prospects around the organizations to leave a lasting impact, carve out roster spots for the upcoming campaign, and set up their futures for resounding successes.

However, one top Twins prospect made a name for himself, but not for reasons the Twins are excited about.

Pitcher Jordan Balazovic suffered a broken jaw due to an off-site altercation last week. The No. 16-ranked prospect in Minnesota's system completed a surgical procedure to repair the injury and will miss the beginning of camp.

Balazovic has not yet made his MLB debut but pitching through Triple-A last season, and was expected to contribute at some point on the major league roster in 2023.

For now, the Twins hold +3300 odds to win the 2023 World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
