BA's Ranger Top 10 Prospect List

Mike Olt - Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Baseball America has come out with their Rangers' top 10 prospect list

Baseball America has come out with their top 10 prospect list for the Texas Rangers, and after the top few obvious choices, it gets a little idiosyncratic.

The list, in order:

1. Jurickson Profar

2. Mike Olt

3. Martin Perez

4. Leonys Martin

5. Justin Grimm

6. Luke Jackson

7. Luis Sardinas

8. Cody Buckel

9. Jorge Alfaro

10. Joey Gallo

I'm a big Luke Jackson fan, but #6, in this system, seems really aggressive to me. And Sardinas ahead of Alfaro, the 2012 draftees, and the big recent international signings seems bizarre. The way I generally judge whether Player A should be ranked ahead of Player B is by asking myself, if the Rangers had to choose to give up one of this two players, who would I rather part with (ignoring system depth, major league needs, etc.)? If I had a choice between giving up Sardinas or Ronald Guzman, or Sardinas or Nomar Mazara, or Sardinas or Alfaro, that's a pretty easy choice for me.

Anyway, there's also a Best Tools list and other stuff at the link, so go check it out...
