Two Indians Named to Top 20 Prospect List

Spokane, WA - Baseball America released its annual list of the top 20 prospects in the Northwest League today and two Indians from the 2012 squad made the cut. Starting pitchers C.J. Edwards and Jose Valdespina were both named among the league's elite.

Edwards, an unheralded 48th-round pick from Newberry, SC in 2011, was named the eighth best prospect in the league after dominating over 10 starts with the Indians. The right-hander posted a 2.11 ERA and struck out 60 batters in just 47 innings pitched with Spokane. Including his four appearances with the Arizona League Rangers, Edwards finished the 2012 season with a 5-3 record and sterling 1.48 ERA.

Valdespina, a free agent signing from the Dominican Republic in 2011, was tabbed as the league's 13th best prospect thanks to his towering 6'6" frame and mid-90's fastball. Though he struggled overall with a 5.58 ERA, Valdespina finished the season with a flourish, allowing just three runs over his final three starts including a phenomenal 6 IP-1 H-10 K performance against Salem-Keizer on August 23.
