Indians' Top Prospect: No. 31

Roman Pena

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. 31 -- Roman Pena

The Roman Pena File

Born:
Sept. 2, 1986 in Tijuana Baja, CA
Position: Outfielder
B/T: L/L
HT/WT: 6-1/190
Acquired: Ninth-round draft pick in 2005 from Montgomery (CA) HS.
Strengths: Raw power is a plus. Is a solid outfielder with an above average arm. Does have some speed, as evidenced by 14 steals last season. Scored 70 runs and drove in 66 while making SAL All-Star team.
Weaknesses: Repeated season at Lake County, where he once again struck out way too much (104 K, 426 AB). Plate discipline must improve.
2009 Projection: Will likely start season at Kinston.
