The Texas Rangers placed two prospects in the Fangraphs top 100 prospect list, with two other Ranger minor leaguers being listed in the “others receiving consideration” category.

18 year old center fielder Leody Taveras came in at #49 on the list, and lefthanded pitcher Yohander Mendez is listed at #64. Those are generally viewed as two of the top three prospects in the Rangers’ system.

The third of the top triumvirate, Ariel Jurado, gets mentioned in the “Other Prospects in Consideration” section, as does 2016 first rounder Cole Ragans, a lefthanded pitcher who has gotten some notice this spring, and who I think we could see appear on some lists as 2017 progresses.
