BP Top 100 Prospects

I just scanned the list, but 3 Indians are on it from what I can tell -- LaPorta #30 (seems a little low imo), Santana #33, and Weglarz #83. I'm a bit surprised to see that neither Adam Miller nor Beau Mills made the list.

The interesting thing is the Royals have 2 guys on the list (corner INF guys at 18 & 21), the Tigers have 1 guy (a pitcher at 7), the White Sox have 3 guys (at 8, 74 and 99) and the Twins have 2 guys (both are outfielders at 36 and 39).

In comparing the teams within the division, it appears the Tribe has a leg up on the rest of the division.

Just read Chuck Lofgren's prospect review and was pleased to read your positive comments. We wish Chuck much success this season and will be cheering him on from the big O.C. GO CHUCK!

Not true. A lot of people had Mills rated very highly. Was ranked in the top 100 by BA last year.....no longer being considered a 3B prospect has hurt his value in some people's eyes though.....but still can rake.

I think Mills was rated highly as a possible thirdbaseman. As a firstbaseman he isn't close to top 100 special, although I will admit he is still a very, very good prospect.

Only a few 1B prospects that are better than him......maybe not top 100, but pretty darn close. Was one of the best hitters in the tough Carolina league at a pretty young age still. I actually think Mills is one of our more underrated prospects at the moment.
