Florentino is fairly new on the radar of those that follow Rangers baseball but as a teen performing at such a high level, he’s sure to have some followers over the coming years. It’ll be awhile before we see Florentino in Arlington but it’s nice to see that we have a seemingly legit MLB catching prospect in the system.
Florentino’s good year was recognized by prospect evaluators as well as the 18-year old was named to the Dominican Summer League Baseball America All-Star team.
