This will be the second to last installment of the Minor League rankings for the 2012 season. The players listed are technically 31-40 on the Indians Minor League prospect list according to this site. No players from the 2012 draft have been included in any lists so far, but instead will be featured in their own article later on. The same standards have been used for this month as in May, July and August.
1. Cole Cook - P - AAA Columbus - Drafted Round 5 in 2010
With the Indians in desperate need of young pitching at a high level, Cole Cook has been thrown into the light. Moves taking starting pitchers from Columbus and moving them to Cleveland have opened up spots in AAA allowing Cook to show the amazing stuff he has been throwing all season. Breaking some of the Indians conservative standards, Cook has jumped four levels in 2012, playing in Lake County, Carolina, Akron and Columbus. Overall he held an ERA of 2.64 (78.1 IP) across 43 games mostly in relief. This was Cook's ...

There’s been plenty of noise that third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall’s return was imminent, and the Indians announced Sunday morning that they have activated him off the 60-day disabled list. Manny Acta said on Friday that he expected the prospect to join the team on their current road trip. Chisenhall will not be in the lineup on Sunday, however, and Acta indicated he would likely...
Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reported Friday night that third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall could rejoin the big league Indians when the Aeros wrap up their postseason in the next week (possibly as soon as tonight). Manager Manny Acta said he wouldn’t play every day if brought up:
“We have to make a decision if we’re going to bring him here or continue to play him at Lake County...
The Cleveland Indians activated infielder Lonnie Chisenhall from the 60-day disabled list before Sunday's game at Minnesota.

Prior to the injury, Chisenhall split time between Cleveland and Class AAA Columbus. He hit .278 with...
The Cleveland Indians have activated infielder Lonnie Chisenhall from the 60-day disabled list, the team announced Sunday. Chisenhall has not played in the majors since suffering a broken right forearm June 29. He was hitting .278 with three home runs and nine RBIs. The Indians made room for Chisenhall on the 40-man roster by transferring right-handed reliever Josh Tomlin from...
The Cleveland Indians led the AL Central in late June and were in contention through most of July, making it difficult to understand the collapse that has them on the verge of being in last place.
A loss in the finale of this four-game set with the host Minnesota Twins on Monday night would tie the teams at the bottom of the division with the worst record in the AL.
The Indians hitters can’t even score a run against the worst team in the American League Central, are you kidding me? These guys are suppose to be professional baseball players. Guys like Jason Kipnis who has shown he belongs in the major leagues on more than one occasion could even get a hit. When things go south for Kipnis they really go south. Not to single out one particular...
