Baseball America's Top 20 Prospects for the Texas League include Jurickson Profar, Mike Olt, and Cody Buckel

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Baseball America has released their top 20 prospect list for the Texas League, and three Rangers prospects make the cut.

Shortstop Jurickson Profar comes in at #1 on the top 20 rankings, with third baseman Mike Olt also getting a lot of love by ranking #4 on the list. Between Profar and Olt are Oscar Taveras and Wil Myers, two of the most highly-regarded prospects in the game, so Olt finishing behind those two is certainly no slight.

Also placing in the top 20 is righthanded pitcher Cody Buckel, the Rangers' second round pick in the 2010 draft. Buckel came in at #14.
