The month of April could not have gone better for manager Rocco Baldelli and the Minnesota Twins. After the biggest signing of the offseason, shortstop Carlos Correa and his squad sit atop the AL Central standings at 13-9.

The good times will continue rolling in May as the Twins announced plans to call up one of their top prospects, infielder Jose Miranda.

Miranda is ranked No. 3 in the Twin's organization, according to MLB.com's prospect rankings. He'll join the team ahead of a four-game set against the Baltimore Orioles.

Outfielder Kyle Garlick may be placed on the injured list as a corresponding move.

Miranda joins the squad in the midst of a six-game hitting streak at Triple-A St. Paul. The young infielder has done nothing but tear up minor league pitching, boasting a .344/.401/.572 slash line along with 30 home runs and 94 RBIs , between Double-A and Triple-A in 2021.

He's a ferocious hitter who can play all over the infield, heralded for his ability to limit strikeouts and make contact at the plate. Miranda has yet to make his MLB debut.
