The Rangers placed two prospects in the Baseball America top 20 list for the Northwest League

Baseball America has their top 20 prospect list out for the Northwest League, and two Rangers made the cut.

Kelvin Vasquez, a tall, lanky 20 year old righthander out of the Dominican Republic, came in at #6 on the list, impressing observers with his low-90s fastball and three pitch mix.

Also making the cut was the Rangers' 2013 3rd round draft pick, righty pitcher David Ledbetter, a 5'11" righty who made the list at #11.

The "Five Years Ago" list from the NWL is interesting to look at, because the Rangers had several guys pop up on there...Martin Perez and Neil Ramirez were #2 and #4, respectively, while Wilfredo Boscan, Tim Murphy, and Matt West (as a third baseman) were also among those who were listed.
