Baseball America's Carolina League Top 20 list includes three Ranger prospects

Baseball America has come out with their top 20 prospect list for the Carolina League, and three of the players on the list spent the bulk of their season playing for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Rangers' high-A affiliate.

19 year old second baseman Rougned Odor was the highest-ranked Ranger prospect on the list, coming in at #3 -- only former first rounders Francisco Lindor and Kyle Zimmer were ahead of Odor on BA's list.  Odor's very favorable write-up includes a quote from Myrtle Beach manager Jason Wood, talking about Odor playing with a "chip on his shoulder."

22 year old righthanded pitcher Luke Jackson was #9 on the BA list.  Jackson got praise for his fastball, while his curve and changeup were identified as pitches that need more work.

Finally, 20 year old shortstop Luis Sardinas checked in at #14 on the list.  Sardinas, a slick-fielding shortstop, is seen by some as the top middle infield prospect in the system.
