Before I kick this off, I wanted to list the guys that just barely missed this list…
RHP Mason Englert – Englert misses the list because of the combination of his injury and lower potential than some of the other injured players.
OF Scott Heineman – Heineman has put up terrific numbers since his return from the IL, but there are a couple of issues that prevented me from ranking him. First, he is a 26-year old prospect. Second, the Texas Rangers have a plethora of OF-ers including Joey Gallo, Delino DeShields, Hunter Pence, Nomar Mazara, Shin-Soo Choo, Willie Calhoun, and Danny Santana.
C Jose Trevino – Trevino’s age (26), and lack of offense prevented him from making the list. That being said, I would like to see him be given an opportunity for the job at catcher. Let’s be honest… his bat can’t be much worse than Jeff Mathis.
