Drafted in the 6th round (195th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2010 (signed for $125,000)
After 2009 sandwich pick James Paxton ran afoul of the NCAA and left for an independent league, Kentucky hoped fellow lefthander Darnell would assume his role as No. 1 starter. That didn't go as well as planned, as Darnell went 5-3, 5.62, missed two weeks with shoulder tendinitis and eventually returned to the bullpen. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder profiles better as a reliever because he has one plus pitch, and his arm action and the effort in his delivery are better suited for shorter stints. As a reliever, Darnell works at 91-93 mph with his fastball. He'll flash a sharp slider intermittently, and his changeup is more effective. Projected as a top-five-round pick coming into the season, he now figures to go between the sixth and 10th rounds.
