Top 20 Prospects for 2015 - Cleveland Indians

1) Francisco Lindor, SS, Grade A: Age 21, hit .276/.338/.389 with 28 steals, 11 homers between Double-A and Triple-A. Renowned for defense with a steadily improving bat and ready for big league trial in ’15. Likely more valuable in real baseball than in fantasy contexts in the short-term.  

2) Bradley Zimmer, OF, Grade B+: 
Age 22, hit .302/.400/.492 in debut between short-season ball and Low-A, 2014 first-round pick from University of San Francisco. Broad skill base with speed, throwing arm, sound defense, on-base abilities, at least moderate power. 

3) Clint Frazier, OF, Grade B+/Borderline B: 
Age 20, 2013 first-rounder hit .266/.349/.411 with 13 homers, 56 walks, 161 strikeouts in Low-A. This may not look that hot but in context was actually well above Midwest League averages and he was 2.5 years younger than competition. Still has the tremendous bat speed but contact is clearly an issue.

4) Francisco Mejia, C, Grade B: 
Age 19, hit .282/.339/.407 in New York-Penn League, switch-hitter with more offensive growth possible, also has sound defensive tools. This grade involves a lot of projection and is rather aggressive.
