1. smoak 2. whittleman 3. murphy 4. morleand 5. tracy With smoak and Davis in the system, murphy, moreland, tracy and bolden will continue to be groomed as outfielders so I'm not sure they have a place on this list. As for Whittleman, meh, I would have to put West ahead of him now for his updside though he has been disappointing thus far. Basically the only true 3b/1b types in the system right now (without reference to potential) are: smoak, whittleman, greene guinn and west (and maybe michael ortiz). If you go down the DSL1 way, you've got Solis (who s/b in azl again in 09) and Miguel Moreno (moving from dsl 2), both 3b. With such barren terrain at 3b, I would expect the rangers to grab a young high-ceiling 3b high in the draft, as a high-priced Intl FA sign or obtained via trade in the next yr. Just as an aside, Premium Latin American 3b free agents garner big bucks so if the rangers want one, they will have to pony up about 1mill or more.
