Twins top prospect Royce Lewis has suffered an ACL injury and will undergo season ending knee surgery.
Lewis showed up to camp saying his knee felt sore. After a check of the knee, it was discovered he had suffered an ACL injury and is scheduled to undergo season ending surgery tomorrow.
It’s a bummer for the Lewis and the Twins and Twins fans. Lewis was about 2 years away 2 years ago. But after the pandemic wiped out minor league baseball last season and now an ACL injury this season, it will be two full seasons that the Twins best minor leaguer won’t see the field.
The #MNTwins announce that Royce Lewis was feeling soreness in his right knee during intake. They got an MRI done, and he has a right ACL tear.
Lewis will undergo reconstruction surgery in the Twin Cities on Friday.
