and it is nearly Septmeber, I did my best attempt at putting together a Prospect list.
Trying to stick to Jay's qualifications, the following prospects seem to be on the radar.
Ben Francisco 25, OF, bats RH - 887 OPS, 27 2B, 11 HR, 47 RBI, 35 BB, 64 K in 360 AB with Buffalo; 858 OPS, 3 2B, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 3 BB, 14 K in 44 AB with Tribe; a fine year all the way around; should stick as the #4 next year or be dealt on off-season. Major & minor league stats
Andy Marte 23, 3B bats RH - 773 OPS, 14 2B, 16 HR, 58 RBI, 21 BB, 60 K in 327 AB with Buffalo; injuries cost him a shot with the Tribe this year, nothing too exciting about his 3rd go-round at AAA, hot lately though. Major & minor league stats
Brad Snyder 25, OF bats LH - 803 OPS, 12 2B, 10 HR, 35 RBI, 12 SB, 36 BB, 91 K in 259 AB with Buffalo; too many Ks really. Minor league stats.
Shin Soo Choo 25, OF bats LH - 656 OPS, 8 2B, 22 RBI, 8 SB, 18 BB, 32 K in 184 AB with Buffalo; injuries have shot this season for him, had a good start with Tribe earlier this year, 644 OPS, but 5 R and 5 RBI in only 17 AB. Major & minor league stats.
Asdrubal Cabrera 21, SS/2B/3B bats SH - 837 OPS, 23 2B, 54 RBI, 23 SB, 45 BB, 42 K in 368 AB at Akron; 745 OPS, 3 2B, 2 SB, 2 BB, 8 K in 38 AB at Buffalo; and a 755 OPS, 2 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 1 BB, 7 K in 53 AB with Tribe; so far so good, climbed the charts very fast this year, Seattle will rue letting this kid go. Major & minor league stats.
Adam Miller 22, SP throws RH - 9.1 K/9 in 62.1 IP, 3.0 K/BB ratio in Buffalo; injuries have hurt his progression, needs to get BB rate down. Minor league stats.
Edward Mujica 23, RP throws RH - 10.12 K/9 in 34.2 IP, 4.88 K/BB ratio in Buffalo; been beaten up pretty good in majors this year but that could be from extreme underuse, still young and projectionable. Major & minor league stats.
Jensen Lewis 23, RP, throws RH - 8.31 K/9 in 13 IP, 3.0 K/BB ratio in Buffalo; 11.31 K/9 in 39 IP, 3.77 K/BB ratio in Akron; 11.15 K/9 in 15.1 IP, 3.17 K/BB ratio with Tribe; could be a good set-up guy for us. Major & minor league stats.
Jeremy Sowers 24, SP, throws LH - 5.76 K/9 in 90.2 IP, 2.52 K/BB ratio in Buffalo; much improved from his Tribe numbers, but more improvement still needed or else he gets knocked off. Major & minor league stats.
Trevor Crowe 23, OF bats SH - 692 OPS in 483 AB, 22 2B, 4 3B, 5 HR, 26 SB, 60 BB, 63 K; with his speed, not sure how he hit into 14 DP. Minor league stats.
Jordan Brown 23, 1B bats LH - 885 OPS in 455 AB, 32 2B, 10 HR, 72 RBI, 56 BB, 51 K. Minor league stats.
Chuck Lofgren 21, SP throws LH - 7.69 K/9 and 1.8 K/BB ratio in 139 IP in 25 GS; made a spot start in Buffalo too (got ripped). Minor league stats.
Scott Lewis 23, SP throws LH - 8.09 K/9 and 3.5 K/BB ratio in 124 IP in 23 GS. Minor league stats.
Jeff Stevens 23, RP throws RH - 11.8 K/9 in 45 IP at Akron and 9.51 K/9 at Kinston; a solid year so far, he is a reliever though. Minor league stats.
John Drennen 21, OF bats LH - 705 OPS in 481 AB; very high K rate so far - 102. Minor league stats.
Beau Mills 21, 1B/DH bats LH - only 28 AB AT Mahoning, 553 OPS; at Lake County had 768 OPS in 177 AB, 12 2B, 5 HR, 36 RBI, 38 K; so far at Kinston (A+) a 1014 OPS in only 20 AB, 5 of his 6 hits have been extra bases. Minor league stats.
A- Lake County
Nick Weglarz 19, OF bats LH - 891 OPS in A-; high Ks 125, but also high BBs 81 in 424 AB, 26 2B, 22 HR, 80 RBI. Minor league stats.
Jared Goedart 22, 2B/3B bats RH - 1190 OPS in A-, 784 in A+; more BB than K in A-; a bit old for Jay's list though. Minor league stats.
Matt McBride 20, C bats RH - 778 OPS in A-, low K rate 54 in 414 Abs, 63 RBI, 34 2B. Minor league stats.
Michael Pontius 19, RP, throws RH - 10.29 K rate in 21 IP in A-, and 12.54 K rate in 9.1 IP at GCL; very fringe prospect since he is not a starter. Minor league stats.
I avoided the GCL and DSL teams. One, the DSL isn't loaded on Baseball Cube. Two, those guys are just too young to project.
Other intriguing years this year were by: John Van Every (27-838 OPS-AAA, 999 OPS-AA), Wes Hodges (22-827 OPS-A+)
I did not list Josh Barfield (24), Franklin Gutierrez (24), or Fausto Carmona (23) as I believe they are on the 25 man roster to stay.
So if I had to rank the "prospects", it would go like this:
Shin Soo Choo
I was a bit shocked we have very little RH starters in the pipeline prospect wise. Also, the lower minors are stocked with LH hitters, but not so many RH hitters.
FYI, I used the following for the [qualifications http://letsgotribe.com/story/2006/2/22/20946/7564]
