The Call-Up: Francisco Lindor

4

Christopher Crawford and J.J. Jansons

Are there any prospects even left in the minors at this point?

The Situation: Cleveland has been among the most disappointing teams in baseball this season, but they still find themselves on the periphery of the race in the AL Central, standing just six games behind the Royals. They’ve also received as little help offensively from the shortstop position as any team in the American League, hitting a feeble .201/.263/.260 thus far in 2015. So to help rectify that situation (now that that the whole super two thing is no longer a factor), Lindor is being brought to the show.

Background: Lindor was considered one of the safest prospects in a loaded 2011 draft class coming out of Montverde High School in Florida, and while there were rumors of him going as high as the second overall pick to Seattle, he ultimately lasted until the eighth pick in the draft. In his four-plus seasons in the Cleveland system, Lindor has posted a career line of .278/.354/.384, but that doesn’t tell the story of just how impressive he’s been in the eyes of talent evaluators across the country. He ranked as the top prospect in the Indians’ farm system this winter, and checked in fourth in the Top 101.

Which one of these future AL Central shortstops should you choose for the long haul?

If you’ve been following the fantasy team’s positional coverage, you’re well aware of what we do in this space. For those new to the series, however, the Tale of the Tape is a feature in which we pluck two closely rated players and place them in a head-to-head matchup to see which one is superior. We’ve done both big-league and prospect versions, but today we’re treating you to a minor-league clash between a couple prized shortstop prospects: Francisco Lindor and Tim Anderson.

View from the turtle during batting practice at this year's MLB Futures Game during All Star Weekend.

The Baseball Prospectus prospect team is constantly on the road, getting eyes on the top talent throughout baseball -- from the amateur ranks up through the majors. Moving forward I'll be working to bring you inside my travels (hopefully with contributions from others on the prospect team), including pictures and video. There will be a lot of baseball and some broader travel stuff if I think you might find it interesting.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Rangers catcher Jorge Alfaro and Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Hitters of the Night:

Jorge Alfaro, C, Rangers (Myrtle Beach, A+): 3-5, 3 R, 3B, HR.
There aren’t too many catchers who possess an 80-grade arm and can hit triples, which gives you a good idea of Alfaro’s unique and impressive skill set.

Minor League Update: Games of April 4-6

Notes on the prospects who stood out over the weekend, including Reds right-hander Robert Stephenson and four top shortstops.

Friday, April 4

Kevin Gausman, RHP, Orioles (Norfolk, AAA): 4 2/3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. Gausman was on a strict pitch count, leaving the game after 71 pitches, and it’s likely that the Orioles are going to build his endurance up early in the minor-league season so that he has something left in the tank for when he’s in the majors down the stretch, hopefully in meaningful games.

From Xander Bogaerts to Gary Sanchez and everyone in between.

The following is an excerpt from the upcoming Baseball Prospectus Futures Guide 2014, our second-annual prospect book, which will collect all of BP's offseason prospect content (plus exclusive prospect and fantasy offerings) in book and e-book form. Here's a look at last year's book; expect an even more meaty offering this time around.

In an age where there’s more statistical information available on players than ever before, you’ve come to the right place to differentiate yourself from your league-mates. Even if you don’t play in a keeper or dynasty league where you can own minor leaguers without wasting roster spots, the importance of reading scouting reports and knowing who these players are becomes obvious when a few years later you are faced with the dilemma of choosing them for your roster.

Top Tools: Best Infield Defense/Infield Arm

8

Mark Anderson and BP Prospect Staff

Part three of a several-part series on the top tools in the minors.

Scouts spend countless hours watching and evaluating players, carefully considering the appropriate grade for each tool or each pitch a player offers. Throughout the course of the season and particularly throughout the course of ranking season, grades are tossed around with near reckless abandon. This player has plus power, and that player has a below-average fastball. This player offers above-average hit projection while that player buries hitters with a potential plus-plus curveball. It's easy to talk about the quality of an individual tool, but what does it all mean in the context of other players?

In the second edition of the annual Top Tools Series, the Baseball Prospectus Prospect Staff debated long and hard over how individual players’ tools stack up against those of their counterparts. Drawing upon our own eyewitness accounts and opinions from scouts across the league, the team debated and compiled the following ratings. The end result is a product that captures the oft-missing context of how individual player tools compare and who has the best of each tool in baseball.
