Permanent Prospect That Matters post

PTM Update

Stats are either major-league stats (if the player is presently in the majors) or overall minor-league stats (if the player is presently in the minors).

As mentioned in the comments below, the Indians don't have many prospects with huge power potential, but because most of their position player prospects are up-the-middle players, that isn't that big a deal. Another factor is that many of their high-level prospects are young for their level.

Pitchers

Age Role/Player Level IP G ERA H/9 SO/9 BB/9
25 RP Preston Guilmet AAA 55.1 42 1.95 6.7 10.4 2.1
25 RP Scott Barnes*(DL) AAA 27.2 23 7.81 9.8 11.4 6.5
23 SP TJ House* AAA/AA 139.1 24 4.26 9.6 7.4 3.3
22 SP Trevor Bauer AAA 109.0 19 3.72 8.6 7.4 4.9
22 RP Giovanni Soto* (DL)
AAA 8.2 9 5.19 8.3 8.3 9.3
23 RP Trey Haley AA 34.1 31 3.93 8.1 8.4 7.6
23 SP Danny Salazar MLB 13.2 2 3.29 5.9 11.2 1.3
22 RP Shawn Armstrong
AA 22.2 21 4.76 8.7 11.1 5.2
20 SP Shawn Morimando A+ 118.1 23 3.11 7.1 6.4 4.7

Danny Salazar is now in the majors, and will probably stay there for the rest of the season.

Trey Haley, after struggling for most of this year, has turned it on down the stretch. He's held opposing hitters to a .152/.282/.182 line over the last 28 days. Obviously he's still walking way too many hitters, but when he is in the strike zone, nobody can touch him.

T.J. House has also pitched better of late, posting a 2.56 ERA over the past month. He's the next round of pitching depth in the organization, and while he won't get an opportunity this season, he should be in the mix at this time next year.
