Indians minor league prospects

No one covers minor league (or amatuer) prospects like John Sickels. Yesterday he posted an updated rundown on the Indians top 20 prospects. Here are the first few, click on the link for the rest.
Cleveland Indians Top 20 Pre-Season Prospects in Review

1) Adam Miller, RHP
Pitching again after missing early part of the year with elbow trouble. Results so far are not impressive: 5.04 ERA in 7 starts, 19/10 K/BB in 31 innings, way off his '04 numbers. I still worry about that elbow.
2) Grady Sizemore, OF
Hitting .278/.326/.442 for the Indians, 22 doubles, 9 homers, 12 steals. Solid player, will get better.
3) Michael Aubrey, 1B
Hit .283/.336/.462 in 28 games for Double-A Akron, before going on the shelf with back trouble.
Bear in mind, John ranked these players prior to the season starting so Sizemore wouldn't even make the list today since he is in the majors.

If these are our top prospects things don't look too good for the forseeable future. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Concur. Our depth in the minors was supposed to be a strength. Every minor leaguer is is a crapshoot at best. Some make it to the majors some don't. A guy he doesn't even list who I see moving through the system quickly is Steven Head. He went 6 for 7 with 2 HR and 9 RBI last night for Kinston.
