Indians' Top Prospects: No. 45

Jeremie Tice

For each of the past 15 years, Indians Ink Magazine has ranked the top prospects in the Cleveland farm system. It began as a top 10 list and turned into a top 50 early this decade. This is our third year ranking the top 100 Tribe minor-leaguers. It factors a player's potential, accomplishments, how he's moved in the system, and projects it to what he could bring to the major-league team.

No. 45 -- Jeremie Tice

The Jeremie Tice File

Born:
Nov. 25, 1986 in Snellville, Ga
Position: Third base
B/T: R/R
HT/WT: 6-1/225
Acquired: Sixth-round draft pick in 2008 from College of Charleston (SC).
Strengths: Gritty youngster with a lot of power. Is big, strong, physical and a maximum-effort guy. Stays on the ball well and generates a lot of bat speed. Has very good discipline at the plate.
Weaknesses: Has room for improvement defensively. He did benefit from working with former Indians all-star Travis Fryman, who was his manager in first year as pro, but still needs polishing both at the plate and in the field.
2009 Projection: Will likely start season at Lake County.
