Ubaldo Jimenez: 6 Prospects the Cleveland Indians Can Still Count on After Deal

2011 has been an exciting year for Cleveland Indians fans. 

This is not only because of their sudden rise to contention, or the acquisition of an ace rather than the departure of one at the deadline, but because they have gotten a glimpse into a future that has come faster than anticipated.

Part of that future is the promotion of top prospects such as Lonnie Chisenhall, Jason Kipnis and Alex White.

But now, with the departure of White to Colorado in the Ubaldo Jimenez trade along with the Tribe's other top prospect Drew Pomeranz, the once vaunted Indians farm system has taken a noticeable hit.

This is something I outlined in my last article, in which I said it was imperative that the Indians sign their top draft picks.

The high minors are now lacking with impact talent, but deep down in the system there are some diamonds in the rough to be found that could soon be valuable pieces in a Cleveland championship run.
