As expected, Jack Leiter, the University of Vanderbilt righthander pitcher who the Rangers took with the #2 overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, is the top ranked Ranger on BA’s list. Leiter comes in at #37, between righthanded pitcher Sixto Sanchez and righthanded pitcher Max Meyer, with fellow 2021 draftees Jordan Lawlar and Marcelo Mayer at #34 and #35.
2019 first rounder Josh Jung also cracks the BA top 50, checking in at #43 on the list, down slightly from where he was previously at #35. Missing time due to the broken foot no doubt hurt Jung’s ranking, though he is currently hitting well at Frisco.
Finally, 2018 first rounder Cole Winn is at #89 on the list. Winn was at #99 in their most recent update last week, though as I noted at the time, I didn’t think folks should assume he would just drop back out when the new draftees were added. Winn has had a terrific year at AA Frisco, and has himself on track for a possible major league debut at some point in 2022.
