Texas Rangers Top 10 Prospects

Published

on


 

These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the Texas Rangers organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.

 

Check out the AL West Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Leody Taveras OF

Taveras is a player we keep waiting to make the big leap, and 2018 might be it. He’s been compared to Victor Robles, with a plus hit tool, playable power, plus speed and the DEF to hold the position down. I caught Taveras in instructs this year, and was surprised how much his body had matured. I liked his bat speed and recognition at the plate, so much so that I’d try to be bullish as this could be “the” year for him.

 


2) Willie Calhoun DH

The hit tool is what we need to focus on. Not the questionable defense and the the unsolidified positional role, but that Calhoun has plus bat speed, hit tool and power. I wouldn’t bet against him putting up 30 HR in the next few seasons. He’s also show a knack for finding his pitch as he only struckout 61 times in 486 AB in the minors in ‘17. Bet on his bat, but question his sustainability and hedge yourself.


3) Bubba Thompson OF

I caught Bubba a few times during the AZL, one of which I believe was me recording his first pro hit (video on twitter). There a few things I don’t love about Bubba’s swing, and hope to see improvements on. He can get long, and his overarching back to the plate I felt was muting some of the power potential. That being said Thompson has a lot of raw power and speed on the base paths to be a really big fantasy asset if he can get himself hitting for AVG. He may find the AVG as an issue long term, so you’d have to bank on his counting stats, which I do dig!


4) Cole Ragans SP

I might be higher than some on Ragans this season. He doesn’t possess overwhelming stuff, but he has great feel for his pitches and moves his fastball throughout the zone in the low 90’s, while offering a power curve and a change. Ragans took advantage of the lower levels racking up a 13.6 K/9, but his command feel isn’t there yet as he had a 5.49 B/9. I think Ragans makes a leap this year and I want to own.


5) Hans Crouse SP

Crouse is either going to be a super exciting starter or a back of the bullpen arm. He has a lot of “Business” in his delivery which leads many to think he is destined for the bullpen. I go with the side of planning for him to be a starter. His plus FB, solid Curve and changeup allowed him to dominate the AZL with a .45 ERA. Many haven’t caught up, so plan on getting in on him first.


6) Christopher Seise SS

7) Yanio Perez 3B/1B

8) Ronald Guzman 1B

9) Yohander Mendez SP/RP

10) Michael Matuella SP
