Former 1st round pick Beau Mills comes in at #42 on the 2012 IPI Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown.

Here is a free non-premium view of left-handed pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz's 2012 scouting report in my new book.

2012 Indians Top 50 Prospects: #46 Hector Rondon
We are moving along into the middle 40s of the IPI Indians Top 50 Prospect countdown, and today a former Top 10 prospect Hector Rondon slides in at #46. Two serious elbow injuries the past two years have stalled his career and his future is questionable, but when he is healthy the goods are certainly there to be a top pitching prospect.
