Twins starting pitcher prospect Jose Berrios had a breakout campaign in 2014, going 12-8 with a 2.76 ERA in 25 starts. He started the season in high Class A before finishing the year with one start in Triple-A.
Berrios entered last season as a top-100 prospect and did nothing to hurt his reputation. In fact, he might have even boosted it.
Now the 20-year-old right-hander has his mind set on making the Twins' opening day roster.
"My first goal is to play in the big leagues from opening day," he told MLB.com. "That is my first goal -- to play in the major leagues. Then my next goal is to play the season strong and healthy. I want to work hard all of the year."
With the majors on his mind, Berrios is working on adding a two-seam fastball to his repertoire.
"I throw a fastball, changeup, curveball," he said. "My best pitch is a strike. Every pitch I throw for a strike is my best pitch. I want to learn a two-seam fastball this year for 2015. I'm working on that this offseason. I need a pitch for the big hitters in the major leagues. I have a fastball, changeup, curveball, but I need one more pitch to compete with those hitters."
