Minor Leagues (2012–2016)

The Minnesota Twins selected Berríos in the first round of the 2012 Major League Baseball draft with the 32nd pick.[2] He made his professional debut that season for the Gulf Coast Twins of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League and was promoted to the Elizabethton Twins of the Rookie-level Appalachian League in August. In 30.2 innings pitched between both teams, he was 3–0 with a 1.17 ERA, striking out 49.

During the 2013 season, Berríos played for the Cedar Rapids Kernels of the Class A Midwest League[3] where he was 7–7 with a 3.99 ERA in 19 starts.

He also played in one game for the Rochester Red Wings of the Class AAA International League at the end of the season.[7]
