This weekend Senne participated in the Minnesota American Legion championship tournament in Minnetonka, Minnesota. His Rochester team played a total of 5 games with Senne winning the tournament's Most Outstanding Player Award:
26 ab 14 runs 19 hits 6 doubles 5 home runs 15 rbi .731Ave 1.290SLG
The left handed Senne also pitched 6.1 innings with 9 strikeouts. With a performance like this in the championship tournament it is clear that Senne was the top player in the State of Minnesota, a player who is at his best in the biggest games.
A reliable source has indicated that the Twins and Senne are approximately $200,000 apart in their contract discussions. Although one never knows which players signed out of high school will eventually make it all the way to a big league club, Senne appears to be a quality player who will have a reasonable chance of doing so. Will the Twins and Senne be able to bridge this gap before he begins classes at Missouri? All Twins fans should hope that the parties find a common ground so that Aaron can begin working his way through the Twins system.
