They sign a lot of young guys in the international market. It's worked out really well for them since JRam was signed that way (from what I heard he wasn't even the player they came to watch, he was the fill in for that player lol, so you never know when you will find someone).

I feel like you completely misunderstood his question.

those names are fucky. Yefferson being the fuckiest.

just start replacing the first letter o regular names with a random letter. Taniel; Welly; Cavid. Lichard

Former #Indiansprospect news. Best of luck to Giljegiljaw in his new endeavor. He was well liked by both his teammates & coaches throughout the organization in his time w/ Cleveland.

Wei Chuan Dragons have signed Giljegiljaw Kungkuan to a developmental contract and he is very likely to enter the 2021 #CPBL draft. The 26-year-old former Cleveland Indians prospect had a brief cup of coffee in Triple-A (2018), but spent spent most of his 2019 season in Double-A

MT88 comment: Departure of Giljegiljaw Kungkuan goes to deepen the need for upper level catching in the Tribe minor league system in 2021 (AAA & AA)..

Eric Cross, the lead MLB/ Fantasy Baseball writer for FantraxHQ has tweeted out his top 15 CLE dynasty prospects today (12/15/20)...


Eric Cross @EricCross04

A follow up tweet listed out 3 who just missed: Just missed: Cantillo, Naylor, D. Johnson

Additional tweets explained why Bo Naylor & Lenny Torres were not on the listing.
------------------------------------------------------------
MT88 comments:
Not sure how I feel about this listing, Fantrax has gone 25 deep plus honorable mentions in the past & I am interested to see if that continues.
The inclusion of J Noel at #11 has me baffled & I am wondering where other more common prospect names might appear (like Moss/ Vargas/ Morgan/ Morris)..

I assume Valera will be playing at high A Lake County this year. I can't wait to see this guy. I've heard plenty about his tools.

Any top 10 list without Naylor? Yikes.

And this dude had a top 15 and still didn't have him. That's just wrong.

What are the parameters for a fantasy "dynasty prospect"? Maybe that is the missing ingredient....seems odd in any case.

Valera should be HIGH A this year. Already lost a year due to a hamate bone, no reason for him to spend more than a moment in Low A. I think he is High A without a doubt.

A lot of guys will be pushed this year.. Palacios for example should do most his work in AA this season, might start in high A but I would be mildly surprised if he does.
