Hunter Bishop OF, Arizona St
Brian Sakowski & Vincent Cervino of Perfect Game:
"Texas is another team that loves athleticism and the pick remains the same with the Rangers grabbing Bishop at No. 8."
Jim Callis of MLB.com:
"One of the most improved players and better athletes in college baseball, Bishop has gone from a .759 OPS and five homers as a sophomore to a 1.313 OPS and 18 [22 and counting] homers this spring."
Bishop has torn it up this season. The Junior has hit .347 with a 1.238 OPS and 22 HR’s, and has reached base at an insane .473 clip. Even though the Texas Rangers have a plethora of outfield prospects in Leody Taveras, Bubba Thompson, Julio Pablo Martinez, Delino Deshields, Willie Calhoun, and others, Bishop could be tough to pass up on if slipping to #8.
