Today we kick off the balloting for the annual LSB Offseason Community Prospect Rankings.

If you are not familiar, each offseason we do a poll, asking who the #1 prospect in the Rangers system is. The winner of the poll gets the #1 spot in the rankings, and we move on to vote on #2, then #3, and so on. If the vote is close or tied, we will do a runoff.

We did not do midseason rankings this year, given the pandemic resulted in the cancellation of the minor league season, and I am sure people will argue the lost minor league season means there’s not enough new information for us to meaningfully do community rankings this offseason. We are going to do them anyway, though, because ultimately, this is more about the journey and the destination.

I will start with the players who made the list last offseason, the top couple of draft picks from 2020, and a few other additions. As we progress, and players drop off due to winning the voting, additional players will be added.

There are some players who may technically still have rookie eligibility left — Jonathan Hernandez and Leody Taveras most significantly — who they have had enough playing time or service time that I don’t think they should be included in the rankings.

So...who is the #1 prospect in the Rangers farm system right now?
