2017

2016

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft slipped to the Indians at No. 17 in last yearís draft after predictably needing Tommy John surgery in March. Everyone is familiar with Aikenís story at this point, and it is encouraging that he was able to throw off flat ground in October. Aiken has the prototypical frontline starter package (minus the clean bill of health), with good size and athleticism, three potentially plus pitches and he happens to be left-handed. Indeed, itís the type of package that could result in Aiken taking a similar path up prospect lists as Lucas Giolito and Jeff Hoffman ó two prospects whose draft-day value was hurt by pre-draft UCL surgery. Of course, Aiken, 19, will need to show that his stuff and command has returned to form when he returns to the mound in 2016, but if that happens, he could put up gaudy numbers in the lower levels, at which point the hype train will have left the station.
