Let’s Go Tribe top Indians prospects for 2019 voting

New, 67 comments

Give a thousand community members a vote and they’ll eventually come up with a top prospects list.

American League Championship Series Game 3: Boston Red Sox v. Houston Astros

It’s that time of year again, when the Let’s Go Tribe community funnels its collective offseason boredom into a top prospects list.

If you’ve been around for top prospect votes in the past, you’ll be familiar with how it’ll work this year: Posts will go up at 10:00 a.m. ET every Monday through Saturday, staying open until 10:00 p.m. that same night. You will have three options to choose from for the top overall prospect, five options for slots two through 10, and seven options for slots 11 through 20.

Feel free to comment, debate, argue, whatever in the comments, but keep it civil. No one is an idiot for valuing a prospect differently than you, but you’re free to try and change their mind nicely. You can also make suggests for the next prospect to be added to the list, but who gets added is ultimately up to the staffer writing the next day’s post.


Triston McKenzie, RHP (Age 21)

2018 (AA): 16 GS, 90.2 IP, 24.0 K%, 7.7 BB%, 2.68 ERA, 3.62 FIP

Had a delayed start to 2018 as Tribe brass is being cautious with him, got stronger as season wore on and finished with solid numbers across the board in Double-A debut.

Nolan Jones, 3B (Age 20)

2018 (A): 389 PA, .279./393./464, 16 HR, 2 SB, 16.2 BB%, 24.9 K%, 147 wRC+
2018 (A+): 130 PA, .298/.438/.471, 3 HR, 0 SB, 20.0 BB%, 26.2 K%, 162 wRC+

Improved both offensively and defensively in 2018. Maintained elite walk rate while seeing a dramatic spike in power and showed no signs of being overmatched after being promoted.

Ethan Hankins, RHP (Age 18)

2018 (R): 2 GS, 3.0 IP, 42.9 K%, 0.0 BB%, 6.00 ERA, 1.07 FIP

2018 first round comp. pick has the most potential of any arm in the Tribe system. Fastball nearing triple digits with life to it and the makings of a great change-up and curve.
