Cleveland Indians Top 20 Prospects for 2008

  1. Adam Miller, RHP, Grade B (would be A- or B+ if healthy but I don't trust his elbow)
  2. Chuck Lofgren, LHP, Grade B
  3. Beau Mills, 3B-1B, Grade B
  4. Josh Rodriguez, SS, Grade B (an underrated prospect who needs more attention)
  5. Wes Hodges, 3B, Grade B-
  6. Brad Snyder, OF, Grade B-
  7. Jensen Lewis, RHP, Grade B-
  8. Jared Goedert, 3B, Grade B-
  9. Trevor Crowe, OF, Grade C+
  10. Jon Drennan, OF, Grade C+
  11. Aaron Laffey, LHP, Grade C+
  12. David Huff, LHP, Grade C+
  13. Nick Weglarz, OF, Grade C+
  14. Scott Lewis, LHP, Grade C+
  15. Matthew McBride, C, Grade C+
  16. Jordan Brown, 1B, Grade C+
  17. Paolo Espino, RHP, Grade C+
  18. Ben Francisco, OF, Grade C+ (I'd love to have him as a fourth OF)
  19. Adam Davis, 2B, Grade C
  20. T.J. McFarland, LHP, Grade C
Others include Mike Aubrey, Matt Brown, Dallas Cawiezell, Chris Gimenez, Bo Greenwell, Stephen Head, Jon Holt, Ryan Mulhern, Heath Taylor, Wyatt Toregas, Sung-Wei Tseng, Neil Wagner, and Adam White.

This system has thinned out at the top but still has depth. There is a large number of C+ guys, anyone from 9 through 18 could rank together depending on what you want to emphasize, so don't fret over the exact placement. I'm not a super-huge fan of Beau Mills, and probably rank him a tad lower than other analysts. I think he'll hit for power but I have questions about his other skills and want to see more pro data.

Of course, full statistics and reports on over 1,000 other players will be in the 2008 Baseball Prospect Book, now available for pre-order. Ships the first Monday in February! The Top 50/50 list will be sent out to all orders with a valid email address later this week.
