Who should be No. 3? Mathew CarperThird base prospect Nolan Jones is our No. 2 Cleveland Indians prospect for 2018, improving from his No. 6 ranking last year. Jones was a top-rated high school prospect in the 2016 draft, but dropped to the second round due to signability concerns.In his first taste of Low-A ball in 2017, Jones was at or near the top of the New York Penn League in batting average (.317), on base percentage (.430), doubles (18), total bases (105) and was tops in walks (43), cementing himself as a stellar contact hitter with a patient approach.It wasn’t until 2018, however, that Jones tapped into the power potential scouts had suggested he possessed due to his 6-foot-4 frame.Jones had only hit four career home runs heading into last year, but playing full-season ball for the first time at Lake County, he blasted 16 home runs while slashing .279/.393/.464. Jones also maintained his elite 16.2% walk rate from Low-A.Jones earned a late promotion to High-A Lynchburg, where his numbers actually improved, increasing his walk rate to a ridiculous 20% while slashing .298/.438/.471 at just 20 years old.The biggest knock on Jones has been his defense, and while he’s still a work in progress, he’s making improvements. Jones was abysmal defensively in 2017, committing 22 errors in just 133 chances for a .835 fielding percentage. In 2018, he made 27 errors in 276 chances, improving his fielding percentage to .902.Jones proved he can play at High-A last year in his 30-game stint, but the Indians might repeat him there if they want to be patient with him. That being said Tim Anderson Jersey , I hope they give him a chance to prove himself at Double-A. He’s clearly proving he can both hit, hit for power, and walk. Once that glove gets up to snuff, he could easily be the third baseman of the future.Ethan Hankins, RHP (Age 18)2018 (R): 2 GS, 3.0 IP, 42.9 K%, 0.0 BB%, 6.00 ERA, 1.07 FIP2018 first round compensatory pick has the most potential of any arm in the Tribe system.

Looked incredible in SSS before broken hamate bone ended his season early.Tyler Freeman, SS (Age 19)2018 (A-): 301 PA, .352/.405/.511 http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , 2 HR, 14 SB, 2.7 BB%, 7.3 K%, 168 wRC+2017 second round competitive balance pick, Freeman is one of the best pure hitters in the Tribe system. He torched the New York Penn League in 2018, although his walk-rate is concerning.Yu Chang, SS (Age 23)2018 (AAA): 518 PA, .256/.330/.411, 14 HR, 4 SB, 8.5 BB%, 27.8 K%, 109 wRC+2018 (AFL): 93 PA, 337/.396/.523, 4 HR, 1 SB, 7.5 BB%, 17.2 K%Chang’s average improved in 2018, although his power dropped from 24 home runs to 14 in his first taste of Triple-A. He stood out in the Arizona Fall League and will compete for the Indians’ utility spot this year.Brayan Rocchio Welington Castillo Jersey , SS (Age 17)2018 (DSL): 111 PA, .323/.391/.434, 1 HR, 8 SB, 4.5 BB%, 12.6 K%, 140 wRC+2018 (R): 158 PA, .343/.389/.448, 1 HR, 14 SB, 6.3 BB%, 10.8 K%, 137 wRC+Venezuelan signed in 2017, same class as Valera, destroyed the DSL and was promoted to the AZL quickly. Many scouts said he was the best player in the AZL last year, exploding up Tribe prospect rankings as a result. NEW YORK — The New York Yankees have spent the last nine days making up ground on the Boston Red Sox by taking advantage of a scheduled loaded with out-of-contention teams.On Monday, the rebuilding Chicago White Sox will look to stay hot and prove to the Yankees they’re far different from the teams New York has been feasting upon lately.A pair of surging squads will face off Monday night when the Yankees host the White Sox in the opener of a four-game series. New York right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (9-4, 3.90 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Chicago left-hander Carlos Rodon (5-3, 2.71).Article continues below ...Both teams continued their winning ways Sunday, when the Yankees completed a four-game sweep of the host Baltimore Orioles with a 5-3 win while the visiting White Sox won their third straight against the Detroit Tigers by notching a 7-2 victory.While hosting the American League wild-card game has long been a near-certainty for the Yankees (83-47) David Ross Jersey , their 8-1 run against the Orioles, Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays has given them at least a flickering hope of winning the AL East.With Sunday’s win, the Yankees moved within six games of the Boston Red Sox, who were swept for the first time this season when the Tampa Bay Rays took three straight games over the weekend. It is the smallest gap between the two rivals since Boston had a 5 1/2-gane lead Aug. 1.The Yankees and Red Sox play six times over the season’s final two weeks, but following Sunday night’s game, New York manager Aaron Boone made it clear he wasn’t looking any further than the White Sox.“I thought guys really grinded to hang on there,” Boone said of the Yankees, whose sweep of the Orioles included a pair of wins in a doubleheader Saturday. “Hopefully we can get some guys some rest and start a big series (Monday) against a really hot pitcher for the White Sox.”Rodon isn’t the only one thriving for the White Sox (51-79), who have won nine of 12 to move within 1 1/2 games of the third-place Tigers in the AL Central.The White Sox has remained hot despite the absence of All-Star first baseman Jose Abreu, who has been out since Tuesday because of groin and abdomen injuries that required surgery. Abreu is expected to return before the end of the season.“You have to give them all the credit in the world because they’re picking each other up, knowing where we’re at without ‘Pito’,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria told reporters Sunday, referring to Abreu’s nickname. “They’re not trying to do too much and hopefully, knock on wood, it continues.”Tanaka didn’t factor into the decision after giving up one run over six innings in the Yankees’ 2-1, 12-inning win over the Marlins. Tanaka, who is 0-2 with a 4.15 ERA in four starts this month, is 4-0 with a 2.23 ERA in five career starts versus Chicago.Rodon won his second straight start and his fourth consecutive decision Wednesday, when he allowed two runs over six innings as the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 7-2. He is 4-0 with a 1.75 ERA in eight starts since his most recent loss June 30.Rodon is 1-3 with a 7.11 ERA in four career starts against the Yankees.
