Twins take Wimmers with first draft pick

Email

The Minnesota Twins have selected Ohio State right-hander Alex Wimmers with their first-round draft pick, No. 21 overall.

Wimmers went 9-0 with a 1.60 ERA for the Buckeyes in 2010. Scouts say he does not have overpowering stuff, but he does have great control. That makes him an ideal fit for the Twins, who stress limiting walks and throwing strikes throughout their organization.
