|No winter ball for Jose Berrios |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/23/13) Coming off a disappointing year in which he went 7-7 with a 3.99 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 8.7 strikeouts per nine innings in 19 starts for Class A Cedar Rapids, Twins pitching prospect Jose Berrios will not participate in the Puerto Rican winter league, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. General manager Terry Ryan said he wanted the 19-year-old to come back fresh.
"Berrios did not have the type of year we were hoping," Ryan said. "I don't think he threw the ball over the plate as much as he could or can or will. He's 19. That was a very good test for him. But it's just a matter of being aggressive in the zone. Nothing more."

|(3/12/13) Twins prospect Jose Berrios pitched for Team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic and impressed his organization with his performance, according to MLB.com. Berrios allowed two runs on three hits over 1 2/3 innings and took the loss in the 4-2 defeat. The right-hander also struck out Yankees All-Star Robinson Cano. "I was impressed with his composure," general manager Terry Ryan said Monday. "He came back and got himself under control. I heard he threw hard and threw some nice changeups. It was a tough situation against tough competition at 18 years old. He started to crack a little but got it back, so I was impressed. And now they're going to Miami. He'll benefit from what he experienced."
