Down on the Farm: John Sickel's Top 20 Indians Prospect for 2010

John posted his Top 20 Indians prospects early Saturday morning over at Minor League Ball and here is what he had to say about the Indians system overall:

I originally indentified 65 guys who could have been written up as at least Grade C prospects, and it was tough to whittle that down. All told, the Indians need more depth in impact talent, but they have an enormous number of C+ and intriguing C prospects. They mine Latin America, they've done well in trades, and they pick up some sleepers (Sipp, Judy, House, Berger) in the draft. If Chisenhall and White lives up to their billing, perhaps that presages improvement in the early impact rounds as well.

One of the guys involved in the Cliff Lee deal last year with the Phillies was former #1 Phillies prospect SP Carlos Carrasco. Here is what he had to say about him:

7) Carlos Carrasco, RHP, Grade B-: Hard to grade given his very erratic track record. He'll look awesome at times, awful at others, you never know what you're going to get. Could be Rookie of the Year. . .or he could post a 5.00 ERA in Triple-A.
