Moving into Day Two of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft, with the Rangers picking today at #83 (with their second round pick), #113 (with their third round pick), and #144 (with their fourth round pick).  They'll pick every 30th pick thereafter for the rest of the draft.

SBN Dallas takes a look at the best prospects still on the board right now.  The first two picks that the Texas Rangers made yesterday are guys that are expected to be relatively easy signs, guys who will sign quickly for at or around slot. 

That means that, today, you could see the Rangers get more aggressive, in terms of targeting players who are expected to be tougher signs.  Josh Bell, for example, is still on the board, despite talk that he wouldn't make it out of the first round yesterday.  Kevin Goldstein says he thinks Bell's price to sign will be $6.5 million, which is a huge number for a guy not seen as a top 5 talent...but now is the point in the draft where a team may grab him and hope to get him for less.

Anyway, discuss today's rounds here...
