The Minnesota Twins selected Achter in the 46th round of the 2010 MLB Draft.[4] Though he was expected to return to Michigan State for his senior year, leading him to fall to the 46th round, but the Twins signed him with a $50,000 signing bonus.[5]

In 2013, Achter played for the New Britain Rock Cats of the Class AA Eastern League.[6] He was named to appear in the Eastern League All-Star Game.[7] He was assigned to the Arizona Fall League after the season.[8]

James "Jim" Fuller (born June 1, 1987) is a North American professional baseball player. He is a left handed pitcher in the New York Mets organization. Fuller was a talented pitcher for Marlborough High School in Marlborough, Massachusetts, and gathered some attention out of high school, but was not drafted. In his high school career, Fuller accumulated two regional MVP awards, 353 career strikeouts and 27 wins.

He started college at Southern New Hampshire University. In hopes of improving his prospects of a Major League career, Fuller transferred to Western Oklahoma State College, but stayed only briefly before transferring to Southern Connecticut State University. Due to eligibility restrictions, Fuller did not return to action until 2008, in which he struck out 145 batters, leading all Division II pitchers, and averaged over 13 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. Fuller also recorded a streak of 59 scoreless innings pitched to go along with a 9-3 record and a extraordinary 1.39 ERA. He was named a Division II All-American.

After his sophomore season, Fuller was selected in the 21st round (644th overall) by the New York Mets in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft.

The Mets optioned Fuller to the Class-A Brooklyn Cyclones. Fuller pitched 18.0 innings with an ERA of 1.00 while earning one save, two wins, and striking out 22 in an impressive first season in professional ball.[9]

In 2012, Hermsen was named the Twins' best minor league pitcher. Before the 2013 season, the Twins added Hermsen to their 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[11] After pitching to a 1-10 win-loss record and a 4.81 earned run average during the 2013 season, they removed him from the 40-man roster that offseason.[12]
