Every season, Indians Baseball Insider ranks the top prospects in the Tribe’s organization and writes up full scouting reports on each of these top prospects. In order to better give you the ability to view this semi-yearly updated ranking, we’ve created a chat for you to sort through and see each player.

If you have an Insider subscription, you can click on the player to view the full scouting report. All readers can check the board for rankings, grades and other prospect info. You can become a Subscriber here for just $4.99 a month to see those full reports

(Scouting reports for #70 OF Korey Holland and #68 RHP Juan Mota are open for all to read, but you must be an Insider to see the rest of the scouting reports from this year’s list)

(Here is a free primer on our methodology for our rankings)

*-#52 prospect Jordan Humphreys was claimed by the San Francisco Giants off of waivers on February 26, 2021. We left his scouting report on the list because it was already written and scheduled to run 2/27. The scouting report is free content for all to read.
