2013 Cleveland Indians Consensus Top 34 ProspectsPosted: March 16, 2013
I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.
Four lists were published much earlier in the offseason before the Indians acquired Trevor Bauer. To account for this, I took his average ranking from the other lists and inserted him into the lists that missed them. All other prospects behind them were bumped down one ranking.
You can also view the 2012 Cleveland Indians prospect list.
The “Change” column describes how the prospect’s status changed from 2012. A positive number means the prospect moved up in the list, while a negative number means he moved down. A prospect’s name is green if he is new to the organization this year.
