The 2013 draft is now complete. Here is the Cleveland Indians full list of selections along with some notes about the draft. Rnd Overall Player Pos 1 5 Clint Fraser 3B/OF 3 79 Dace Kime RHP 4 111 Kyle Crockett LHP 5 141 Sean Brady LHP 6 171 Casey Shane RHP 7 201 Kenny Mathews LHP 8 231 Trevor Frank RHP 9 261 Thomas Pannone LHP 10 291 Ross Kivett 2B 11 321 Adam Plutko RHP 12 351 Heath Quinn OF 13 381 Sicnarf Loopstok C 14 411 Silento Sayles OF 15 441 James Roberts IF 16 471 Mark Peyton OF 17 501 Ryan Hendrix RHP 18 531 Paul Hendrix IF 19 561 Matthew Whitehouse LHP 20 591 Shane Rowland C 21 621 Paul Young RHP 22 651 Ben Heller RHP 23 681 Grant Fink IF 24 711 Kerry Doane RHP 25 741 Cole Sulser RHP 26 771 Daniel Cogan RHP 27 801 Juan Gonzalez C 28 831 Steven Kane RHP 29 861 Ridge Smith IF 30 891 Aaron Brown LHP 31 921 Will Crowe RHP 32 951 Cortland Cox RHP 33 981 Joe Wise LHP 34 1011 Dustin Cook RHP 35 1041 Jordan Milbrath RHP 36 1071 Mike Giuffre IF 37 1101 Garrett Smith IF 38 1131 Justin Garcia RHP 39 1161 Frank Duncan RHP 40 1191 Dan Pellinen IF The draft was pitcher heavy overall, but especially for the Tribe who took 24 pitchers overall, breaking down into 17 RHP and 7 LHP. The final 12 picks were position players, but only the the first overall pick out of the eight picks was not a pitcher. The Indians first round pick was last year's high school player of the year and the first high school player to be taken first by the Indians since Francisco Lindor two years ago. Lindor was the first since 2001 when the Indians took Dan Denham in the first round. For a long time the Indians were focused on taking college players as there is less risk, but very few of those players have made an impact on the Major League Level. While it takes a few years longer for a high school player to mature, most potentially great high schoolers are drafted before they hit college. There's nothing wrong with a little nepotism. The Indians selected Paul Cogan, the son of an Indians scout. Cogan was actually in the draft room when his name was called. Last season the Indians drafted Nick Hamilton, the son of radio announcer Tom Hamilton. There aren't a whole lot of big names in this years' draft beyond Frazier and Kime, but there is a very odd name in Sicnarf Loopstok. He is a sophomore catcher out of Western Oklahoma St. JC that was originially born in Aruba.
