Jose earned the honor of the Minnesota Twins’ minor league player of the year last season in 2021, and Miranda is presently ranked as baseball’s number 93 prospect by the Major League Baseball Pipeline.
Miranda compiled a batting average of .344 to go along with his 30 – home runs and 94 – RBI’s over the course of his 127 – games with Minnesota Twins’ Double – A affiliate in Wichita, Kansas as well as their Triple – A affiliate in St. Paul last baseball season (2021).
