Indians' Top Prospects: No. 37
The Jose Constanza File
Born: Sept. 1, 1983 in Santo Domingo, DR
Acquired: Signed as non-drafted free agent, June 13, 2003.
Strengths: The fastest runner in the organization and one of the best base-stealers in all of minor league baseball. Stole 23 bases in 29 attempts in '08. Excellent instincts. The switch-hitter, with outstanding bat control and bat-to-ball ability, is a very exciting player.
Weaknesses: Virtually no power. Has hit only six homers in six minor league seasons, none last year with Akron. Not a strong arm. Projects as a left fielder.
2009 Projection: Will likely return to Class AA Akron, but could move up to Triple-A sometime during the year.
