Nick Lodolo, Shea Langeliers, or Hunter Bishop
Personally, I would be thrilled to see any of these guys be drafted to the Texas Rangers. Initially, I wasn’t too high on the them drafting an outfielder with the 8th pick, given that they have a bunch of OF prospects spread out across their farm, but Bishop would simply be too good to pass up.
Nick Lodolo could potentially become the Rangers’ most advanced high-upside prospect by the end of the season, and there is no such thing as having too much pitching in the farm system, especially if something like a Noah Syndergaard trade gets closer to becoming a reality.
Shea Langeliers (C-Baylor) hasn’t been given much attention as being drafted by the Rangers, but I would absolutely love to see him taken by Texas. So far this season, he has hit .304 with seven home runs in 41 games, despite being limited by a hand injury, and coming on strong late in the regular season. His offense isn’t even the best part of his game, as he is a terrific defensive backstop that can hold even the best base thief’s in line.
