Lindor, Frazier, Bauer on Baseball America's Top 100 Prospect List

The unveiling of baseball's most respected prospect list has become a prime-time television event.


Baseball America unveiled its Top 100 prospects on MLB Network on Wednesday night. Three players in the Indians' farm system were mentioned during the broadcast.

Shortstop Francisco Lindor, who played for the Lake County Captains in 2012, leads the Indians' trio at No. 13. Lindor's high ranking is no surprise. He plays a premium position, receives high praise from everybody associated with the sport and doesn't turn 21 until November. Lindor was ranked 28th on last year's Baseball America list. A strong performance at Double-A Akron, his likely 2014 starting destination, could propel Lindor into the top 10 of every credible 2015 prospect list -- assuming he doesn't reach Cleveland this season.

Outfielder Clint Frazier, the Indians' 2013 first-round draft pick who will likely begin this season with the Captains, is 48th on the list. Baseball America named Frazier the top prospect in the rookie Arizona League after Frazier cracked five homers in 44 games last season. Frazier turns 20 in September.

Pitcher Trevor Bauer is 82nd on the list despite a rough 2013. The 23-year-old Bauer was ranked 14th on last year's list following an offseason trade from the Diamondbacks to the Indians. Bauer is competing to become the Indians' No. 5 starter this spring.
