Here is the working research list for Cleveland Indians prospects.

I am now working on the Cleveland Indians Top 20 prospects for 2015 list. The first run through the system gave me 46 names for study, which I have cut down to the 39 listed below.

As always, the top prospects are pretty obvious but the hard part is deciding which Grade C prospects to focus on. Like all organizations, the Indians have some potential role players close to the majors (of greater interest to short-term fantasy owners and casual fans) as well as long-distance prospects years away from the big leagues but with upside (of greater interest to dynasty-stye fantasy owners, prospect fanatics, and intense Indians fans). Finding the right balance takes some time.
