    Higginbotham impressed the Twins as they followed his progress this summer, showing a fastball that sat in the 87-91 mph range and got as high as 94. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound righthander showed a lot of moxie, battling through seven innings in one outing where the temperature was 107 degrees. Higginbotham has present stuff with his four-pitch mix, but also has projection remaining, thanks to a slender frame and a loose arm action. Right now, his curveball is ahead of his slider and he also mixes in a changeup that is a work in progress.
