One of baseball's top pitching prospects will be in attendance at the Twins Winter Caravan Pensacola at Blue Wahoos Stadium on January 16th! The Pensacola Blue Wahoos announced today that starting pitcher Jordan Balazovic, ranked as the fourth-best prospect in the Minnesota Twins farm system by MLB Pipeline, will join teammate Mark Contreras in Pensacola to meet fans, sign autographs, and participate in Q&A sessions from 5:00-7:00 PM at the ballpark.

Balazovic, a fifth round selection in the 2016 draft, shot to the top of prospects lists during the 2019 season, combining to post an 8-5 record and 2.69 ERA while striking out 129 batters in 93.2 innings with A-Cedar Rapids and A+ Fort Myers. Promoted to Pensacola to start game three of the Southern League semi-finals against Biloxi, Balazovic shined in his Blue Wahoos Stadium debut on September 6, striking out seven batters over 4.2 innings and helping propel Pensacola to a victory.

Balazovic is ranked as the second-best pitching prospect in the Twins farm system (behind former Blue Wahoo Brusdar Graterol), Minnesota's fourth-best overall, and 76th in baseball by MLB Pipeline.

The Minnesota Twins Winter Caravans is one of the longest running and most extensive team caravans in professional sports, bringing Twins players and personalities to numerous stops in over 40 communities throughout Twins Territory during the month of January. At the Pensacola Caravan stop, fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from Balazovic, Contreras, and other guests, attend question and answer sessions, shop for exclusive ballpark souvenirs and giveaway items at the team's first yard sale, get a behind-the-scenes look at Blue Wahoos Stadium, be the first to view the team's 2020 Promotional Schedule, pick out their seats for season and mini plan memberships, and have exclusive access to purchase 2020 Single Game Tickets in person at the event before they go on-sale to the general public on March 1.
