In this edition of Who's Hot, we take a look at the Twins four full-season affiliates, and who has been hot over their teams' past ten games. We breakdown each affiliate, both hitting and pitching, and give our readers a look at which prospects are flourishing over the past week and a half.

There were high hopes for the Red Wings coming into the 2009 season, but after a 7-10 start in the month of April, a lot of critics have come out of the woodwork. The team batted only .244 collectively in April, and some of the better prospects on the roster failed to produce.
May 4, 2009
Cesar Ramos doesn't make it out of the fourth. Stephen Faris continues his impressive run and the Missions notch another shutout. Ernesto Frieri gives up four bombs; Kellen Kulbacki hits two. Robert Perry supplies the lumber in a blowout. Simon Castro is dominant in a Eugene shutout. Jaff Decker goes yard as the AZL Padres put up 15 and lose. Jose Paulino has one of two hits in a DSL Padres loss.

Wade LeBlanc gives up one run over seven innings and still takes the loss. San Antonio gets its Texas League leading 13th shutout and Kyle Blanks awakens. Jeremy Hefner does not allow a run across seven and gets a no-decision for his efforts. Dean Anna makes his season debut with a flourish but has little help on the offensive front.

Chip Ambres hits two but 12 runs are charged to Sean Henn and Dirk Hayhurst in one-third of an inning. Sean Kazmar continues his roll at the pivotal time. Drew Miller is hammered over three-plus innings. Andrew Parrino had four RBIs across a doubleheader and Jackson Quezada was prominent in both wins.

Portland pitching falters, as Enrique Gonzalez and Sean Henn have rough nights. Steve Garrison propelled the Missions to their second straight shutout. Nathan Culp was fantastic again, but the pen almost blew it. Justin Baum 7, Lansing 5 – the Wizards are now five games over .500. Juan Rosario was impressive in a DSL start but the bullpen was not.
