Baseball America has updated its top ten rankings of prospects in the Guardians organization – so who made the cut?
Major League Baseball might be in the midst of a lockout, but the fun hasn’t stopped over at Baseball America. The publication just released its newest top ten prospect rankings for the Cleveland Guardians, with shortstop/second baseman Tyler Freeman headlining the list.
In fact, the Guardians are flush with exceptional middle infield prospects. So much so, one has to figure Cleveland will be active in trade talks once the league starts back up again.
But in the meantime, here’s a look at the potential future for your Cleveland Guardians.
Baseball America’s Top 10 Cleveland Guardians Prospects
10. SS Angel Martinez
Angel Martinez is a name you may not know yet, but the 19-year-old should certainly be on your radar in 2022. Martinez was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2018, making the jump to Low-A Lynchburg this year despite the lack of a 2020 season. The switch-hitter held his own to the tune of a .241/.319/.382 line with seven home runs, 20 doubles, 13 stolen bases and 46 RBIs in 377 at-bats. Martinez – who can play second, third and shortstop – figures to play next season at High-A Lake County.
