Twins prospect Royce Lewis, the No. 1 pick in 2017 draft, tears ACL and will likely miss 2021 season

Shortstop Royce Lewis, one of the Twins’ top prospects, has torn his ACL and will likely miss the entire 2021 season, Twins president Derek Falvey told reporters, including Betsy Helfand of the of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Wednesday. Lewis, 21, was the first overall pick in the 2017 draft out of JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, California. Thanks to the pandemic, we didn’t get to see his progress at the minor-league level last season, but Lewis played 127 games between Class A-Advanced and Double-A in 2019, hitting .236/.290/.371 with 26 doubles, four triples, 12 homers, 49 RBI, 73 runs and 22 steals.

It’s true that those numbers aren’t very impressive, but Lewis also tore it up in the Arizona Fall League following the regular season, slashing .353/.411/.565 with 20 RBI and 21 runs in his 22 games.
