Baseball America top 100 prospect list: The Texas Rangers placed five prospects on the Baseball America top 100 list, which was unveiled tonight.
Joey Gallo, of course, was the top ranked Ranger prospect, checking in at #6 -- only Kris Bryant, Byron Buxton, Addison Russell, Carlos Correa, and Corey Seager ranked ahead of Gallo. Interestingly, Bryant is, like Gallo, a third baseman, and Correa and Seager are thought to have a good chance of ending up at the hot corner.
Jake Thompson slotted in at #43 on the BA list, followed by Jorge Alfaro at #67. Nomar Mazara ranked #87, and Chi Chi Gonzalez was #89.
