WILLMAR — The Minnesota Twins have selected former Ridgewater lefthander Onas Farfan with their 21st round selection in the 2014 MLB draft Saturday. 

Farfan, who is currently on the roster for the Northwoods League's Alexandria Blue Anchors, pitched in Willmar on Friday night, beating the Stingers 10-4. 

He went 1-5 with a 4.58 ERA for the Warriors this spring. 

The Minneapolis Star Tribune's La Velle E. Neal reported that Farfan hit 89-91 mph with his fastball at a recent workout and had a changeup in the 70s with a good, but inconsistent, slider.
