Winter League Update

Right-handed relief prospect Jeff Stevens continues to make his name noticed, and is primed for a potential bullpen role in Cleveland sometime in 2008 if he continues to pitch as well as he has in 2007 and this offseason. Team USA just won the World Cup, and Stevens was a big contributor in the bullpen throwing six shutout innings and only giving up three hits while striking out five.

Stevens pitched briefly in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) and also pitched for Team USA against teams in the AFL in a tune up for the World Cup. Combined with his World Cup performance, this offseason Stevens has thrown: 12 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 11 K. He also chipped in with three saves, and his fastball continues to gain life as it is not sitting around 95 MPH. Keep an eye on this guy, as he could move fast in 2008. I will also have a full, detailed scouting report on him when my Top 50 list is released in January.

In addition to Stevens, here is a quick listing of how Indians players from all levels of the organization are doing in winter ball. This list is unofficial as I am trying to verify if I have accounted for all the Indians players, but here is who I have so far:
