Brinson, Cordell make Cal League top 20 list

Baseball America's top 20 prospect list for the California League includes two Rangers prospects

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Baseball America continues rolling out their top 20 lists with the California League top 20, and the Rangers have placed two players on the list, with Lewis Brinson at #7 and Ryan Cordell at #15.

Brinson, of course, has been rocketing up the prospect lists the second half of this season as he had a breakout campaign that saw him perform well at high-A, AA and AAA, and ended up his stint with High Desert with a .337/.416/.628 slash line in 258 ABs.

Cordell had a rougher transition in moving up from high-A to AA, and is something of a tweener defensively, as he's played some infield and center field, but doesn't necessarily have the glove to stay there on a permanent basis, while his bat may not play at a COF spot.  Still, the .311/.376/.528 slash line for High Desert was impressive, and Cordell will have the chance to go back to Frisco next year and improve on his AA performance.
