The Texas Rangers have had a successful year with young players contributing. The first names that come to mind are Joey Gallo and Chi Chi Gonzalez but the team has also received contributions from Hanser Alberto, Keone Kela, and Rougned Odor. All of these players have one thing in common, they all made appearances in the minors as part of a Texas Rangers affiliate.
Baseball fans today are paying more and more attention to the minor league teams and looking at future players for their team. With so many affiliates and so many players in a minor league system, it can be difficult to keep track of each of the team’s minor league best performances. Today, we are going to take a look at the best hitting and pitching performances from the past week for the top three farm teams.
Let us begin with the top affiliate. They have won five of their last six games and have a five game lead in the division. They have the second longest winning streak in the Pacific Coast League at three games, four games behind the Las Vegas 51s.
