Cleveland Indians Top 30 Prospects, 26-30

Every year the list of the Top 30 prospects for all the teams are released and this year the eyes of Cleveland Indians fans might be looking a bit closer than in recent seasons. While this list is everchanging from trades to breakout players, the first edition at the beginning of the season always raises intrigue. The offseason has been full of moves and changes to the roster, so now the attention turns to the future of the club, and that could very well begin with these 30 players.

Now, a story on all 30 prospects would either be too long to keep anyone’s attention, or too brief to give any context about these 30 players. Instead, we’re breaking them down into groups of five, beginning with the last five on the list at 26 through 30. These five players are a mixed bag of talent that represent the list well in a nutshell. There’s two players that are currently at Spring Training with another two that haven’t even turned 20-years old yet.

To give a bit of context for the list as a whole, of the 30 players listed 12 are pitchers with the other 18 being position players. The Indians have listed four left-handed pitchers, two of whom are on this portion of the list, leaving eight right-handed pitchers. The rest of the list consists of four outfielders, two catchers, one first basemen, one third basemen and 10 players listed as either a middle infielder or utility infielder.

Needless to say, the list has a little bit of everything which is what you want to see for the future of the club. Each position has some sort of plan in place for the future. The question will be, how many of them will not only make it to the majors, but make it to Cleveland specifically?
