Josh Wolf

Another trade and another pitching prospect added for the Cleveland Indians organization. At 6-foot-3 and just 20-years old, Josh Wolf will join the minor league ranks for the Tribe after being the No. 9 prospect in the Mets’ organization. He was a 2019 selection for the New York Mets in the second round and appeared in just five games during the 2019 season.

Over those five games, he started all five and accumulated just a 0-1 record. Pitching a total of eight innings, Wolf struck out 12 batters while walking just one. The downside was that he allowed four runs, three earned, for an ERA of 3.38. He also gave up nine hits for a 1.25 WHIP.

He’ll have a lot of time to grow in the organization, but the strikeout-to-walk ratio is a promising sign.

Isaiah Greene

As for the final piece of the deal, Isaiah Greene, we’ve yet to see him in action beyond high school. Greene was the Mets’ second pick in the 2020 MLB Draft out of Corona High School in California and was New York’s No. 10 prospect.

Turning only 19-years old this past August, Greene has a lot of baseball ahead of him and could see a quick road to the majors if he develops quickly. The Indians are in need of outfield help, so he can’t come fast enough.
