I don’t know if this was discussed previously but he surrendered 19 runs in 8 appearances for the Daddys in ‘19. Now, I don’t know what the context of those numbers are so I won’t say it’s implicit one way or the other.Seems bad
An absolute knock to their credibility that Tyler Freeman isn't ranked at this pointI know a lot of the more knowledgeable guys on this site don't care much for MLBPipeline, but they released their updated top 15 team farm system rankings. Tribe checked in at 12.
12. Cleveland Indians
Preseason Top 10 Rank: unranked
Top 100 Prospects (3): 3B Nolan Jones (No. 40), RHP Triston McKenzie (No. 68), LHP Logan Allen (No. 98)
Prospects Points (MLB rank): 97 (21st)
The Indians are on the rise with the youngest collection of Top 30 Prospects, including 14 teenagers. None of them cracked the current Top 100, but the strength of the system is sweet-swinging middle infielders such as Tyler Freeman, Brayan Rocchio, Gabriel Rodriguez and Aaron Bracho.

Why rank a 20 year old slashing .321/.387/.455 over 200+ minor league games when you can rank half of this years draft class who have played maybe 20-30 games ahead of him?An absolute knock to their credibility that Tyler Freeman isn't ranked at this point
I selfishly want him to come out of the pen after next years all star break. Who is the last guy to hit triple digits as an Indian? Bartolo?Man, the Indians have really cleaned up his mechanics in a short amount of time.
The power he generates from his lower half is insane.

Control was always one of his knocks prior to early this season. He had 36 BB in 48.2 IP across 3 levels last year.Karinchak hasn't been particularly sharp since returning to Columbus.
8 walks in 3-1/3 IP. Only throwing 53% strikes. ERA near 19
Still striking guys out at an elite rate though. 24 K/9 in this tiny sample.
Was throwing 65% strikes pre-injury
