The seasons of the Cleveland Indians minor league affiliates have all ended, and the time has come to re-rank the team's top prospects.
The farm system is full of interesting players, and while very few qualify as can't miss guys, there are some who, if things go their way, could become impact players at the big league level. Others are relative newcomers to the professional game and will require some seasoning before they are ready to make their marks in Cleveland.
No matter which way you classify these prospects, it's clear that there is some solid upside in the Indians' top 10 prospects. Among guys like Francisco Lindor, Clint Frazier, Trevor Bauer and others, the potential is there for a nucleus of young, talented players who occupy key positions on the diamond.
So, without further adieu, let's count down the team's top 10 prospects, beginning with No. 10: right-handed starting pitcher Mitch Brown.
Players with no rookie eligibility are not considered prospects. Therefore, due to the ever-increasing likelihood of Danny Salazar exhausting his rookie eligibility for the 2014 season, he was left off this list. Should he retain his eligibility, he would slot into the No. 3 spot, pushing every prospect back one space.
