Baseball America’s Top 10 Prospects: Cleveland Indians

Lindor: No mere earth-baller.

1. Francisco Lindor, ss
2. Dorssys Paulino, ss
3. Tyler Naquin, of
4. Cody Allen, rhp
5. Mitch Brown, rhp
6. Danny Salazar, rhp
7. Luigi Rodriguez, of
8. Ronny Rodriguez, ss/2b
9. Jesus Aguilar, 1b
10. Chen Lee, rhp

If the Indians are counting on help from the minors, impact talent is still at least a couple of years away. Francisco Lindor is a potential all-star and fellow shortstop Dorssys Paulino may be the best international player they’ve signed since Peralta in 1999. But neither has played above low Class A, nor has 2012 first-rounder Tyler Naquin, and beyond them the system is thin.

Dorssys? Dorssys?

That Mayan apocalypse can't arrive soon enough.

I believe DORSSYS is one of those top-secret weapons projects, probably involving dolphins.

I'd include Kipnis in the impact-talent-from-minors group...

Should have put a double s on the end of that name too. If you are going to be ridiculous about it, go all in.
