Beyond the Boxscore has started thier "50 Best Players of the Next 5 Years"
list. Will a Ranger be in the top 20?
No. 42: RHP Neftali Feliz, Texas (Total WAR: 19.16; Years 1-5: 3.9, 3.9, 3.9, 3.9, 3.5)
I'd like to make one thing clear: Feliz doesn't make this list as a reliever, he makes it as a STARTER.
No. 26: SS Elvis Andrus, Texas (Age 21; Total projected WAR: 21.76; WAR Years 1-5: 3.4, 3.9, 4.6, 4.9, 5.1)
For those who might have missed it,I'm a big Elvis fan. Projected as the best shortstop in the AL and the third-best shortstop in the majors over the next five years, Andrus combines a top-notch glove at shortstop with a progressing bat that our projections see taking some major strides.
