5. Minnesota Twins: OF Dylan Crews. LSU

Yup, call it crazy. But the Twins might just be able to walk away with the big name here at no.5 if all hell breaks loose in this draft class. I'm sure the Tigers would take Dylan Crews and be more than happy with him at no.3, but in this scenario, I decided to incite chaos upon the draft board.

This means the Twins are set to select Crews at fifth overall and walk away with the biggest steal of the first-round likely. Crews put up video-game numbers this season and put on an absolute clinic at the collegiate levels. But, in this scenario, I've got him slipping to the Twins.

He's a hitter. Simply put, he hits. He's going to be a big leaguer that just bet on himself going to college, and after a national championship at LSU this season, he's starting at a nice signing bonus to kick off his career in affiliated ball on his next journey, the climb to the big leagues. For more on Crews, check out his MCB Draft profile.

For the Twins, they're staring at the best prospect in the class and possibly getting him at no.5, knowing they can give him a nice bonus and have "the guy" in their system. That being said, that rounds out the top 5 picks in the 2023 MLB Draft.
