MLB named the 2014 top 10 prospects at each position.  Only five Texas Rangers made the list, none of which were for pitching or outfield. Here is my ranking of those that made it on MLB’s list.

1) Behind the plate, MLB’s third best catcher is Jorge Alfaro. The Texas Rangers believe in their future catcher, as he is their number one prospect.  Jorge Alfaro is on the smaller side for a modern-day catcher, 6’2″ weighing in at only 185 lbs, but the 20-year old has plus bat speed and a plus arm that, once developed should keep him behind the plate for a long time. 

"“Alfaro ranked second in the AFL in hitting (.386) and seventh in doubles (6).  He also threw out 7-of-14 basestealers.” (Star-Telegram – Jeff Wilson)"

With those numbers, I am just as excited to see him in the big league.
