Highly touted Indians prospects promoted to Triple-A
Two top Cleveland Indians outfield prospects are one step closer to the big leagues.
Clint Frazier and Bradley Zimmer have been promoted from the Double-A Akron RubberDucks to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, the team announced Sunday.
Both Frazier and Zimmer represented the RubberDucks as Eastern League All-Stars this month.
The two outfielders have each shown pop in their swings. Frazier slugged 13 home runs and 48 RBI in 89 games, while Zimmer hit 14 homers and added 53 RBI in 93 games for Akron.
Zimmer and Frazier are the Indians’ No. 1 and No. 2 prospects respectively, according to MLB Pipeline.
Frazier represented the Indians in this season’s Futures Game during All-Star Weekend in San Diego. Zimmer participated in the 2015 edition in Cincinnati.
