Overall State of the System

While the Cleveland Indians may not have the best farm system in baseball they have a very deep one. They may only have one prospect ranked in the top 50 by the major publications but you’d be hard pressed to find many systems as loaded from 8-20 as the Indians.  This can be a good thing and a bad thing though.  While depth is good, talent is what wins in baseball.

However, when you consider the amount of under 30 talent the current big league team has in Cleveland, one can see that this organization is in great shape.  Jason Kipnis, Michael Brantley, Carlos Santana, Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar, Trevor Bauer….the list goes on and on.  All guys signed or under team control for multiple years.  Factor in talents like Bradley Zimmer, Clint Frazier, Brady Aiken, etc. and it’s an exciting time to be a Cleveland Indians fan.
