 Biographical Information
Jose Berrios was a 2012 first-round pick.
The Minnesota Twins took Berrios with the 32nd pick of the 2012 amateur draft, the first supplemental pick, compensation for the loss of Michael Cuddyer. He was the second Puerto Rican picked, following #1 pick Carlos Correa and the second of three Twins first-rounders (after Byron Buxton and before Luke Bard). Berrios had been timed as high as 96 mph on his fastball in high school and also had a hard curveball and a changeup with movement. He soon signed and made his pro debut with the GCL Twins on June 29th. Berrios concluded his first year in MILB undefeated, gathering three wins with a collective ERA of 1.17 between the GCL and the APPY.
