Twins Sign Lewis Thorpe

The Twins signed 16-year-old left-hander Lewis Thorpe, his agency, Paragon Sports International, announced on Twitter. The Australian, who’s also represented by One Management, obtained a $500K bonus, MLBTR has learned. 

Several teams considered Thorpe the top amateur in Australia for July 2, Ben Badler of Baseball America writes. The prospect has a good feel for pitching and a fastball that sits in the 86-88 mph range, according to Badler. The Twins signed Dominican shortstop Amaurys Minier for $1.4MM yesterday, so they've now spent most of their $2.9MM budget.
