Baseball Prospectus has their midseason top 60 prospect list out, and the Texas Rangers have four players who crack the list.
Jack Leiter may not be #1 on every list of Rangers prospects currently, but he’s still the top Rangers prospect according to BP, as he checks in at #24 on their board, between Pete Crow-Armstrong and Taj Bradley.
Ezequiel Duran is close behind Leiter, checking in at #31 with a report that sees his upside as being a “solid, power-hitting third baseman.”
Speaking for solid, power-hitting third basemen, Josh Jung comes in at #41 — even with being sidelined this year, he appears to still be a consensus top 50 guy.
Rounding out the group, at #55, is outfielder Evan Carter, whose solid season at Hickory has seen him move up the charts.
Interestingly, the Orioles’ Gunnar Henderson is the #1 prospect on their list. Based on what I’ve seen someone with BP say on Twitter, I think they are catching some flak from some folks about it. Henderson is a surprising pick at #1, though not so much so that I think folks should be torquing out about it.
