Miller, Sizemore Rated Top Tribe Prospects

2005/01/19

Adam Miller ranked second among all pitchers and Grady Sizemore placed 17th among hitters in John Sickels’ forthcoming The Baseball Prospect Book 2005. The Indians’ farm system placed seven prospects on Sickels’ two lists, second only to the eight Athletics who received rankings.

Also ranked among Sickels’ Top 50 Hitters were Tribe farmhands Michael Aubrey (22nd), Franklin Gutierrez (33rd), Brad Snyder (34th) and Ryan Garko (41st). Fernando Cabrera (46th) was the only Tribe pitcher besides Miller to crack the Top 50 Pitchers.

    The Indians really need to get rid of Betancourt and Wickman. Carmona came in against the Reds and shut them down. Why bring in Wickman, he is a big big disappointment; past his time. Need a third baseman, also. Darrell Bible

    Darrell,I agree that the Tribe should deal Wickman and start grooming the next closer, be it Carmona or Cabrera or Andrew Brown. I wouldn’t expect him to bring much in trade, however, given his age and tightrope pitching style. I still think Betancourt can be an effective and inexpensive option out of the pen, but he has struggled in some key moments. I’d hate to think that we have another Riske on our hands. Boone will of course be gone next season. There aren’t many contenders who could use him (Padres?), so don’t expect to see Marte or Kevin Kouzmanoff at third until September.
